RCS is now available on Telus Network [Pixel 2, 2 XL, 3, and 3 XL]

Telus/Koodo/PM have rolled out RCS ("Next Generation Messaging") for Google Pixel 2, 2 XL, 3, and 3 XL. I guess slowly it will make its way to other Android devices.

Until RCS works on more phones and across the carriers, it's still a bit of a mess. Step in the right direction I guess.

I dont know about everyone but I just find it super annoying when I see the person start typing and just decide not to continue typing and forgetting about the conversation.

Doesnt bother me at all.

It's been available on my Fido Samsung for a while now.
Just don't have anyone to talk to as everyone is on iPhone.
