Some Pixel users can’t use RCS messaging on mobile data after installing Android 13
RCS is Google’s answer to iMessage
RCS is Google’s answer to Apple’s iMessage; both platforms have similar features
Because RCS uses a data connection instead of a cellular connection, messages can be sent via Wi-Fi. The maximum number of characters in an RCS message is much more than the cap of 160 found with SMS (Text) messaging, and RCS delivers end-to-end encryption, read receipts, typing indicators, higher-quality images and video, and more.
A Googler on the board posted a workaround that Google Fi users and others are welcome to try:
- Turn on airplane mode.
- Go to Settings > Storage and clear storage for Carrier Services and Messages (this does not delete message history).
- Turn off airplane mode.
- Open Messages and try again.
If you’re suffering from this issue, try the steps above and let us know in the comments section whether they are working out for you.
