For some reason this morning I am being harassed by a Google chat feature that keeps coming back up after I select continue without it. I don't feel like agreeing to the terms. How do we make it stop?

By switching back to samsung messages, why are you even using Google messages in the first place if u don't like their terms? They would still collect similar data if u want chat features or not

I've never signed up for Google messages.

??? It shouldn't be pre-installed on a Samsung Device

The chat features it wants to add are part of the Android OS. Privacy laws requires them to ask for permissions.
Today 09/10/2021 I had a notification for a Samsung update for my Note20U, it fixed the harassing Google request!

So google chat is now included in Samsung messages. You could download google messages set as your default while it's set as default try clicking "use without features"? Or click accept and then turn the feature off again in Google messages settings. Hopefully this helps till Samsung can provide an update for Samsung messages to fix the "use without chat features" button.

This chat feature brings features like reactions and more that people have been requesting for awhile now.
