Re: Yes I have 2freinfs that have the same thing.

JUMP TO SOLUTION

These blue dots just showed up on 3 of my contacts. Also in the menu popup (3 dots at top) theres a opinion only they have that says

Send as chat message 

with a slide on/off option which was already on. What does that mean and do I need to do anything or not worry about it?

Thank you

@userE4o031l4ID This may be an indication of other Samsung users showing that your ability to use features like a live message between two contacts who have a Samsung Device.

Do you see any blue dots on a contact profile that isn't a Samsung device?

I have the same issue I was having being unsure of these little blue dots that appeared. My bf and I both have the Galaxy A20 and we both all of a sudden after having these phones a cpl months had these blue dots appear next to contact icon in msg app. But it makes sense ur answer below. Except for I think some user do have Samsung but no blue dot I'll have to investigate further

I think them users have the ability to see that the text they sent you has been delivered, and when you read it, on there screen it will say read..  try sending them a text.. when they get text it will say delivered on your screan, and when they open it, it will switch to "read" on your screen

The dot clearly indicates compatibility with another contact to use special features only available on certain phones (not just Samsung). For example, the "chat message" feature. Read on: Why are my messages sometimes sent as chat and sometimes as texts?

Messages are sent as chats if the person you’re messaging has Message+, Rich Communication Services (RCS) and a data connection. Otherwise messages will be sent as text or picture messages. (This function isn’t supported on iOS.) You’ll always know which type of message will be sent (text, picture message or chat) before you send it.

You can see whether you’ve sent a text or a chat – most devices show them in different colours. Consult your device manual for specific advice.
