All I can see on ny Google Messages is them liking with a thumps up or what not, with RCS on but with it being disabled it just shows "liked an image"
I was unaware that samsung made googles messages the default messaging app for the s 22 series. I have the s 21 ultra. However I've looked within the chat settings myself. & as of now it is not a way, & or setting where you/we could like/react to a message. Hopefully in a future update they'll add that. As for my post to samsung regarding the question of our conversation/topic, I'm still kind of new to this samsung chat room thing. I'd say check my profile maybe the post would be there.
