    This is an app update through the Play Store. Phone model and carrier do not matter. You can lay out three different phones and one might get the update and not the others, two might get it, or none, or all three.....

    We know Google is rolling it out. It takes time and patience. Doesn't matter what phone you have.

    That may or may not be true, especially where VZW is concerned. There is a lot of web hubbub over exactly when Verizon will adopt RCS. I don't know for certain, but RCS might be key to Googles web messages implementation.

    In the future, I totally agree. For app updates now, I'm not so sure. I had five Verizon phones laid out last night to see what would happen. 1 Z Force Droid, 1 Turbo 2, 1 Z Play Droid, and 2 Moto Z2 Verizon variants. All connected to the same WiFi router. I checked the play store and only One phone had the app update.

    Well I'm glad to hear that at least one VZW phone got the update!! I'm hopeful my time is coming soon.

    Gudusau got the app update yesterday on her Z Force, so I'm pretty sure she is on Verizon with a Z Force Droid phone. I've never really understood how Google tolls out these app updates. By Region? Then why did only one out of five in my house get it? Maybe by some internal phone spec, like Software Density? Hard to say, I guess. I have done things like that before just out of curiosity to see which phone gets which app update first. Never could find a ryme or reason to the process.

    My husband got his update for messages, as well. Same model, same account, same house. I'll swing by my folk's house tonight and check and see if they've gotten a message. They've both got Z Plays on my account. Neither have received Oreo, FWIW.
    My son doesn't use that app, so....

    it is not just phones this happens to, it happens all the time with the amazon echo devices. I have several and they have gotten updates weeks apart for whatever reason. maybe it is the age of the phones that get the updates first.

    I just tried the play store 12:45 6/21/18 not avaiable still. My messages app was just updated yesterday, 6/20/18. If I'm at my desk I would use it just because it's easier to type than on my phone. Why not just use voice to text you may ask, I have no good answer .
    regards

    A lot of work places don't allow cell phones but do work on computers all day. This way they can stay in touch with others over the pc instead of phone.
