I believe RCS with Samsung messages is carrier specific. I know the S22 has android messages as the default message service now. If you are concerned about losing features that Samsung messages has, android messages has now implemented all of them IE: Scheduled messages, starred messages, and categories

I have an S20+ unlocked and of course ATT does support RCS on the carrier locked variant. What I would like to know is if the S22's Samsung customized version of Google messages will become available for older phones say S10 and later. Searching Samsung messages in the Galaxy store does not return any results at all. so not even sure how often the normal version gets updated either.

Just use android messages and enable chat features. You can also join the beta program to get new features early....

2nd this. It may have changed name now to Google Messenger. One caveat, some of the RCS features need both parties to be using a RCS enabled app

The app is simply called messages within the app store and you are correct both parties need to be using RCS . When I used Samsung messages awhile back there would be a blue dot next to contacts to indicate users who had RCS enabled.
