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?

View the blue dotted Contact entry on your Contact list and you will see a green video camera icon with transmission lines on it. Select that icon and you will "video call" that Contact. Very similar to Facetiming in the Apple World

The way I understand it if your phones have the same company you have the blue dot such as Samsung.  You can chat amongst each other and recieve info faster?
