    Reposted as the original Reddit link, this is a method that will let you force enabling RCS through any Android Device via the Messenger app. I tried it on three different devices and it seemed to work just fine, and where I live is a cellular dead zone, so texting via WiFi is much appreciated.

    Edit: If you send an MMS, you'll have to turn the flag back on. Not really a prime time solution.

    It seems like the update to version 5.2.052 broke the "hack" for me and many others.

        I think it has something to do with with sending picture MMS in particular, where you have to reactivate it manually. At least for me.

          Hm maybe. I haven't sent one since then, only received.
