Why Are Some of My Sent Text Messages Light Blue and Some Dark Blue?

Environment

  • Android Messages app

Answer

This is the way Android Messages indicates whether the message is being sent via RCS or SMS/MMS protocols. The darker messages are RCS.

Additional Notes

If you notice that the messages sent via RCS are also showing to the recipients as coming from a different number than your Republic Wireless number, please see A Different Number Shows When I Text Certain People and the Messages Are Dark Blue Instead of Light Blue
