Level 1: Cadet

Latest Samsung Galaxy S8 update removes the Telstra chat messaging.

The latest galaxy s8 update has removed the Telstra chat messaging on my phone and returned it to the normal message service that it had before. I have checked message settings, and chat is set as my default and rich communication is turned on. I do not receive read receipts, nor does it tell me when someone is typing. The text is in beige instead of green.
How can I get Telstra chat messaging back?
