Windows Phone: Microsoft and Samsung teamed up to bring RCS messaging to Your Phone app

Windows Phone:

Microsoft partnered up with Samsung to bring RCS message support to the Your Phone app on Windows 10. RCS messaging currently works when you use a Galaxy 20 series phone with the Your Phone app. This is the next step of Microsoft’s growing partnership with Samsung, which includes preinstalling Microsoft apps on Samsung phones, integrating OneDrive into Samsung’s Gallery app, and selling Samsung devices through Microsoft’s physical and online stores.

Roberto Bojorquez, a program manager at Microsoft covering Your Phone, announced RCS messaging support for Your Phone on Twitter. Bojorquez states that RCS support for the Your Phone app starts with the Galaxy 20 series, implying that it will come to more phones in the future.

He said that in response to a question regarding the Galaxy Z Flip, meaning that Samsung’s newest foldable does not support RCS messages with the Your Phone app right now.
