Support Advanced Messaging (RCS)

Newer Android phones have "Advanced Messaging" which isn't recognized as SMS or MMS messages so Tasker is not able to capture or react to these events.  Would like to have Tasker support this new message type.  Samsung Galaxy S8 and S9 phones on ATT in US support this feature. See ATT info here: https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html#!/wireless/KM1062086

Hi João, any update on this? Google Fi just rolled out RCS also

There's still no Android API for it so I don't think there's anything I can do unfortunately...

There's no Android API for RCS yet but I actually already asked Google for this. Fingers crossed!
