It's an update to the IMS service, something your phone has always had. From the description on the web it looks like more preparation for RCS support
Here ya go!!
Plus, here's a link to the app so you can read all of em... pretty damn funny, if I do say so.
Carrier services updates > Discord updates
While Discord fixes their app, Carrier services fixes your life

Well, everyone has to have RCS turned on, and make sure they also have the carrier services app installed on their phone for better reliability.
I use the Google Messages app for texts. I've found it works better for things like RCS, or at least it did on my S7. I still use it on my S20.
Carrier Services: [link]
Google Messages: [link]
I was thinking this only required the carrier services app + compatible messaging app. Can anyone confirm?
From the recommendation of another post out here, download Carrier Services from the play store, and it will fix the issue. Worked for me and a bunch of others. [link]
Edit: wrong link
*if everything not working, install carrier services from play store and repeat step 2 - 4
Uninstalled and restarted phone. Did not reinstall.
All the recent reviews show that this is a problem. I would not reinstall until the problem is fixed.
No, it's not a system update, it's a package delivered thru Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.ims
Have you installed the Google carrier services app from the play store?. My friend's RCS didn't work on their pixel until they installed it, not sure if it's the same for Samsung
Google was supposed to have finished rolling out RCS to all Android Messages users.
Try installing the Carrier Services app from Google Play. Some people needed that, some don't.
Carrier Settings are sent via an APP via the Google Playstore.Litterally look up "Carrier Services". From there, uninstall the app, then reinstall it after a reset. Then reset again if you need to if you're extra paranoid.
But for the most part, I've been pretty good with it. Since the app is updated frequently enough I don't see issues for very long to begin with. :)
For anyone wondering. I'm on Version 12.0.195755634-CarrierServices_V12W_1_RC24Last Updated May 9th 2018.
Edit: for those wondering, Yes this app is mainly for Android Messages, however some network optimizations happen here as well.
This worked for me too -- thanks for finding and sharing this fix! I spent a couple of hours today with T-Mobile tech support and they couldn't figure it out. However I did notice that this app somehow disables itself after a couple of hours. I tried to contact Google via the developer email address they list, but it has a robot reply stating that nobody reads it. Figures.
Here's a direct link to the app in the Play Store for anyone else having the issue.
I'm more puzzled about the screenshots of the app: [link] though I don't know why they even felt the need to upload any screenshots as the app is pretty much a background service anyway, could be a "feature" of their storefront.
the user reviews are gold, though
Check if carrier services is installed. It's required for RCS and for some reason it got uninstalled on my S20 FE and I couldn't use RCS properly. [link]
Check to see if Carrier Services in installed. It's required for RCS Chat. [link] for some reason my S20 FE no longer had it installed, and Google messages was no longer encrypting RCS conversations.
This might be the longest of longshots, but on your Android phone can you check to see if Carrier Services is installed? I don't know if that truly matters, but it's just one more thing to rule out, even though you've already left Visible.
I had the same problem on the S21. Try installing Google's Carrier Services app from the play store. This seemed to have got it working for me.
No idea since I'm not in the US, but a wild shot...
There's an update dated 12 April 2021 in the Play Store for Carrier Services (the system component which enables the latest communication services from mobile carriers, including battery-optimizations and support for enhanced features in the Android Messages app.)
Try installing that and see if it solves the issue.
I think what did it for me is I had to install an app called "Carrier Services" (? or similar) from the Play Store. It's a Google app. Once I installed that, RCS chat features started working.
Edit: yeah, this one
I’ve heard that updating Carrier services helps. If not, maybe try the Beta version of Google Messages or making sure the phone is using the data of your primary SIM if you have dual SIM slots
This one: [link]
Maybe if you don't have it, that's what's causing the issues. It's the part that enables RCS and other enhanced features.
No, this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.ims&hl=en_US&gl=US
Also check that this app is up to date if you're on Android [link]
Lastly, try toggling Wi-fi calling as this can interfere with SMS sometimes
I currently do not have any wifi calling problems with the 4a 5g, still says Mint Wifi calling. Using fast apn. On the dec 9 version of carrier services, but who knows, the dec 10th one might have broken it again for people
(just reading the comments and people complaining about sms after dec 10 update)
Try uninstalling Google Carrier Services and restarting your phone. Looks like that could be the issue. Its been working for me since I uninstalled it.
Lots of people seem to be having the same problem.
You shouldn't need this on Koodo, but some people who have carrier specific RCS have had success installing Google carrier services and using Google messages:
Perhaps that will work for your friend
I've been having issues with RCS lately. Are you on the beta? I know that some of us (I know it's more than me due to the members app forum) have issues with it if powersaving mode is on. It wasn't an issue prior to the beta for me.
If you're not on the beta and it's not power saving mode that's giving you the issue, try checking if Carrier Serivces is installed.
I'm running the exact same setup and RCS works just fine here. Works fine for me without it, but maybe you can try installing carrier services.
If the chat feature doesn't appear right away, make sure that this is downloaded or updated. It's a system app that you only have to install once and it's what makes the RCS function work.
I've noticed that you may need to download the app carrier services from the play store, it's a Google app. So you can find it on the list of there apps. [link]
did you exclude it from battery saving? make sure all permissions are enabled. I also downloaded carrier services by google. idk if there's a way to visually confirm this helps, but it wouldn't hurt to have it installed too
i should also point out that, there were hidden system apps related to rcs functioning (indirectly and directly). for the v30, the package names were some variation of com.rcs.provider. oddly enough there were some additional hidden wifi settings that I launched as well...
since rcs is so new and slowly maturing before our eyes, troubleshooting in some cases is necessary. though this may be a bit excessive, I hope this helps.
sadly i don't have any hacks for dual sims issues....
Make sure you are on the latest carrier services.
Go to the Play Store. Download Carrier Services. [link]
Download Messages. [link]
Try using this app as your default and see if you have issues still.
Installing google carrier services fixed my AA assistant woes. Worth giving it a try. Install, wait an hour, reboot phone and try assistant again.
>I got all that...
Well maybe you could edit your OP & add that essential troubleshooting info? ;)
Google Messages app + a GApps package + the required for RCS Carrier Services are not included in official LineageOS which is the topic of this subreddit.
Try searching the XDA forum or the web for solutions.
I think it's related to the play services not being updated, could you please check if that's the case? You can find them on the play store here: [link]
Ok I got it to work.
Install Carrier Services and Activity Launcher and follow the instructions and you should be good to go.
I don't know if the RCS messaging features actually got received though. I'm using a Smart sim.
Don't delete that you need ti and you can re download in here
And concerning you reception issue have you tried resetting your network settings?
Both of you should go into your settings and clear the cache/data for the system apps called "carrier services". If neither of you have the app install it from this link: [link]
I do not have the have the update yet. I currently have the Oneplus 6T on Freedom.
I just recently downloaded 'Carrier Services' and I updated my SIM software by doing the following; Update your SIM software by texting SIM to 40001.
Now I will wait, see and let you know if it works for me. :)
I thought it was baked into the LG T-Mobile V30 ROM, but I was mistaken and it can be fully uninstalled. Perhaps it was a left over app from my Nexus 6p that got automatically xfered to my V30 during the initial setup?
org.codeaurora.ims, Phone and Messaging Storage, Phone Services, SIM Toolkit
So, you're disabling the SIM Toolkit and Carrier Services. As far as I can tell, SIM Toolkit and Carrier Services help with setting up for RCS and similar systems.
Does WiFi calling work for you?
Install this app [link]
And all your SMS will be going through. I was having problem with Android Messages missing SMS and Samsung Messages did not, but after install this one app, my SMS is back to normal.
Sprint uses rcs which sends hq photos/videos & you get a preview thumbnail first till it finish downloading but i think it sometimes fail because of size & you'll only get the thumbnail
Do you have this updated?
If anything she can send you 100% quality videos & photos by selecting link sharing on share
>I don't really understand the use for the app, but reading the reviews, I'm still confused.
It's in the newest Carrier Services update. One of my phones got it. I can force call wi-fi configuration screen with Nova launcher. I don't have my Project Fi SIM so I cannot test if the new options are enabled.
You can download the update from APK Mirror. It's fairly safe to install. Just make sure the dialog is asking you to update not to install. Update means it was made by the same company as your current Carrier Services apk (Google, Inc.) If it just say install, back off and burn the apk.
I will try to check 3xCA later today. The only that could potentially affect it would be the Carrier Services app that is getting updated on the store now.
The fastest I've seen is around 60mbps if I remember right. And a V20 hit 90mbps (fastest I've seen in my town actually...We only have 10+5mhz B4 here and 5mhz B2 in some places ☹️ ). That was across the street from a tower. When I get closer the tower, the Pixel drops down to under 5mbps or non functional at all lol...
What version is your carrier services? [link]
See [link] for the reviews that explain it all. Most are safe for work :-)
As has been said here, RCS is the speculation. More to come.
Just read the reviews and you'll understand everything.
Hey /u/NevilleRayTMobile Thank You so much for finally announcing this! Hopefully now with a 2nd US carrier using RCS we may see what happened in Canada with almost all carriers having full RCS support today. I do have a few questions though that are often misinterpreted and unsure of in the tech community and it would be a big help if you could answer some of these.
With T-Mobile adding RCS to it's IMS stack will this mean that MVNO's (Such as MetroPCS) will also begin to support it on same-day launch or will those seperate companies also need to make independent changes to their software to be compatible?
T-Mobile uses it's own third-party app for many advanced messaging (DIGITS) for compatible devices. Will DIGITS be updated to utilize the new RCS spec features such as multi-device support?
You mentioned 'here' that "Most 3rd party apps do not utilize the Carrier grade Messaging Solutions we’ve implemented" is this Google's Carrier Services app or something else and does this mean app developers will have to individually optimize and develop for every single carrier's RCS feature?
Will this mean RCS API's may start to come to fruition?
As mentioned here you will be using the Samsung RCS Hub. Which is fully compatible with Google's Jibe Hub and other possible RCS hubs but will this sacrifice a limited exclusivity for Samsung Phones only such as Canada carrier 'Bell Mobility'?
Will unlocked phones that support RCS (Such as the Pixel phones) also be supported?
I think Carrier Services wins.
Them reviews. [link]
Install Carrier services
Download the carrier services app on the affected phone, same issue here and that fixed it right away: [link]
You need to download carrier services from the play store in order to get rcs working
Blame this app; [link]
It's on Play Store [link]
Uninstall all updates too [link]
Download the carrier services app. It helps, I haven't had any issues with the Android Messenges app since.
Je vous conseille les commentaires de la mise à jour de Google Carrier Services
Yep - this seems to be the solution for most issues like this.
What happens if you install google carrier services?
Make sure you have Carrier Services installed and up to date.
also make sure you have carrier services installed as that has been an issue for some.
Carrier services is a Google app, you might need go the download it.
An app Google automatically distributes on the Play Store to all Android phones, that helps enable RCS in Android Messages when available. I don't know why it's separate from Android Messages, maybe it helps with RCS in Samsung Messages too?
Google also updates their carrier profiles. For Pixels, there is no waiting. [link]
You have to install also carrier services [link]
To make RCS work on google messages
Yes, but before you switch you need to go into the settings and disable chat features (if you're using a T-mobile device) if your using a unlocked device download Carrier Services
Here is proof it works http://imgur.com/gallery/3wMMdAI
Click update if you can
4g mini hub... hello minihub.app
If you did all these and still can't get access to RCS then contact google help services
Oh RCS on what phone? If you are using google messages have you also installed this app as well [link]
Yup. You'll need to download the Google Carrier Services app. Google Carrier Services - Play Store
might as well check if carrier services is installed as that stopped one of our phones working.
Also, do you have Carrier Services app installed?
Update it if there's one available.
Do you have Carrier Services installed? If so, try clearing data from the app and relaunch Messages.
Make sure your Carrier Services is updated.
Did you update your app? Also install this. It's a system app that works with it: [link]
Use this as well as the beta app. [link]
Carrier Services will probably solve your issue.
Try installing Carrier Services
Try installing Carrier Services. Lmk if it works because my friend also has the same issue but hasn't gotten around to this.
Install Carrier Services
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.ims&hl=en_US GET THIS! If you're on Verizon for sure! The others seem to be right behind Big Red. Then Google Messages works.
Okay Textra, let's get this thing going! I prefer Textra for sure, but I'm not going to lie, I'm going to be looking at Google Messages for a few days to see about the RCS.
Do you have this installed? [link]
You'll need to download it.
Are your carrier services up to date?
You sir are a god amongst men!!! Thanks for sharing!
Link for those to lazy: [link]
Carrier services are from Google and they're forcing it so maybe yes?
This is the one
Did you not install carrier services? That's needed for WiFi calling (among other things).
By carrier services are you talking about this?
Double check that you have the latest version of carrier services
Also download Google Carrier Services
Try doing the same thing to the "Carrier Services app"
You should see some reviews for this app.
Sometimes you need to install "Carrier Services" for it to recognize RCS
Maybe for [link]
I'm assuming latest security patch because pixel. Carrier Services up to date?
Also latest phone and duo versions?
Check on the play store?
Here's a link to it if you want to check it out. Litteraly every single review is like this!
Not sure if it will help for iPhone, but had the same issues on a Samsung S21. I downloaded an app called Carrier Services from Google LLC (Play Store) and everything came back to normal. Hope it helps you guys out as well.
