  1. Joyce Bagby-avatar

    ;-) I am having issues with the last update. I have a problem with notifications. Between the My Verizon & Msg+ updates I may have an issue with notices blocking my screen for what is at least 2m & I was too bugged to time it thru ending. It could be it's not 1 of these 2 and I am incorrect to think it is. I will be sure to return if I have been unfair. I took a star away because of that & the search dn work as well as previously for msg add-ons, gifs, memes, etc. It can be used for e-gifts.

  2. Lottie Kuehn-avatar

    I do not like the changes. Take me back to the previous verson!!! What I dont like is not having a number notification on my icon. I dont keep my phone with me at all times, so i dont always hear when i receive a text. I liked being able to glance at my phone and see whether I have any messages

  3. Sheree Marcum-avatar

    I have loved this app but HATE the April 30, 2020 update. Biggest issue, quite often I need to get to someone's profile for emails, addresses, etc. and I've always been able to from the text contact. NOT now! Ready to look for a new app if this doesnt get changed.

  4. Jean E-avatar

    I just got the 7.0.4 update yesterday, but don't like the look or new features of adding audio, video, e gift cards, postcards, etc. There's too much space between messages on the main text message page. I don't like that you now have to swipe the message to call a person. I preferred to have the phone, message details (i.e. was it delivered, etc.) underneath the person's name and message. On the page where you type the message, as noted above, I don't like the bottom of the page where texts are written. It now has the red + button, camera, and emoji face. While I know I don't have to click on the red button because I would not add any of the listed features, I find it distracting.

  5. Krista Meler-avatar

    I love the app because I am able to send messages to my friends and family. But, on one group chat, it won't load and I'm not able to access the messages and am not able to type. I hope this gets fixed soon, because I am not able to talk to the people who are on that chat. I will give 5 stars if fixed at some point.

  6. Tim Salam-avatar

    App overall is pretty good especially with some of the more recent updates. However, as of today I'm not able to attach any images to a test message. It will say processing and the app reappears but never sends anything. Please fix...

  7. Katie-avatar

    Used to love this. Changed my number and can't activate it. It says "skip provisioning" with my old number listed and can't get changed. Then all picture messages get sent into a group chat with. I'm at a loss.

  8. Vincent Campbell-avatar

    Can't activate. QR will not scan. Tried several times. Image arrives, try to scan, red line just scans and scans over image but never recognizes. Like app on my phone. How do I activate on my tablet? Online search shows many people have this same problem but there doesn't seem to be a fix even though there are many other ways to securely activate other than a QR code scan. Very frustrating.

  9. Linda Stritzel-avatar

    Messages+ font size is very small when message is opened to read. Can't change it to appear bigger. It changes when you open the app, but not when you actually open a message.

  10. joan d-avatar

    App is too busy you have to go thru too many steps before you can use the app. Keep saying opening banner every time I open the app. Want to go back to old way. In my humble opinion, for me this new & improved version sucks!

  11. Steve V-avatar

    Once again you make changes that screws up the app. This update changes my font color and styling. Everything is bright white on the Aurora theme and it use to be black. Can you at least fix it so you can have either or? This is getting old. Just fix what broken leave what works alone

  12. Amanda Cross-avatar

    New update is not user friendly. I have yet been able to determine whether I have a new message if I clear my notifications bar from top of my phone. Opening does not go directly to the app as before. The font size changed

  13. J T-avatar

    The update makes the app horrible. It was fine before. Now I can't tell when I get a message & messages are no longer highlighted. Looking for a replacement.

  14. Amy Heavner-avatar

    Whatever changed in the last few days.........I HATE! NOTHING LOOKS THE SAME. I'm looking for another app. Just when you get used to something and like it.... they do this! Everything is different!

  15. Ang B-avatar

    Updated without asking. It worked great before. Changed the look and no option to keep the way it was. I have to hit send twice and lags when it sends. Please give the options back!

  16. Christina Keel-avatar

    This worked perfect for years. There was an update yesterday and today and now I can't open my text messages. I can't open a text to read it or reply to it.

  17. J s-avatar

    Was great. Update makes it garbage. Update. No notifications when you get a message now. Have to click an additional button to pull up pics when sending in a message. Format change that did nothing but change it visually. Why on Earth would you take a good working app then break it?

  18. Rob Roberts-avatar

    Can't install on my Lenovo Chromebook because the app installation is looking for a front facing camera which is not installed on most Chromebooks. Why can't it use the installed camera to read the QR code or provide an alternative way to install the app. Google messages provides the QR code on the Chromebook to be read by your phone eliminating the problem.

  19. Hope S-avatar

    I don't like the new update. Looks different, there's a pause getting in, doesn't always send when I want it to. I have to send twice.

  20. Apprentice-avatar

    App works fine but I wish they had an option to Schedule a Message. Sucks that this option is only available thru Verizon and not all phones are use this app. Not sure who that falls upon...

  21. SKULLZY-avatar

    Its better than the manufactor messaging, but I hate how i cant send videos to people on ios. Also, when my friends who have ios send me videos, the quality transfer is absolutely terrible.

  22. Dianne Hutsell-Bradley-avatar

    Dianne Hutsell-Bradley


    I have been trying to get message failed fixed for a year or more. I can't get anyone to fix problem. You never know if it failed or if it actually sent. Why can't this be fixed.

  23. cheryl Lehnherr-avatar

    cheryl Lehnherr


    I used to love this app, now I am considering finding a new one. My biggest gripe is that the thread limit setting is now gone. There is no way for me to cleanup my texts by manually deleting. In the meantime, more and more storage is being eaten by old accumulating texts. Please fix! Additionally, I don't like the additional spaces between the threads in the view, and other functionality that has changed.

  24. Drive X-avatar

    The splash screen, bright, and annoying, and absolutely unnecessary. We don't need a reminder that it's a Verizon all very f'n time.

  25. Christina Lillard-avatar

    My message plus was working. Then a couple of days ago, I am not able to use my camera to take and send pic in my messages and I also can not go to gallery and choose a pic and send it. I went to the play store and it says...bug fix. It was talking g about it. It stated it was fix in February I think. I just started having the issue. If I uninstalle it and reinstall it, wonder if I will lose my message?

  26. Bethany McCoy-avatar

    I had a Galaxy Note 8 a few weeks ago, that the LCD broke on and so I had to get another one. Well the Verizon Messages app, on my old one updated, and looks different than the app on this phone. But when I come to Play Store, it says that the app on this phone, is up to date already. (It's the 6.9.13 version) I liked the way the updated version (7.0.3) looks SO much better.

  27. Nita Kimpel-avatar

    I do not get any notifications. There is no chime, there is no number icon to let me know there are messages. I have checked all settings and had my husband (who is an electrical engineer/quality control manager) look at the settings. The only way to tell there is a message is to go and open the app and then there are all my unread messages. Its been like this through 2 different cell company's.

  28. Shauna Rae Garinger-avatar

    I used to love this app for texting, then all of a sudden it started crashing everytime I'd try to open the messages from my most frequently contacted people. I can't see, or send messages to those people anymore. I had to go back to the stock app. I tried deleting all the messages, from everyone and that worked for a day, but it went back to crashing. I'm so sad.

  29. Krista Pulaski-avatar

    Ive emailed you on the 3rd of April 6th and 7th nothing has been down!!! Been using this for awhile now and now im having issues sending out texts. Its so slow. Then the screen doesnt update and it doesnt show if your text was even sent until you restart your phone?! Also having issues with sending pictures too!! Help. App updated last time there was an update

  30. Rene J-avatar

    I was trying to activate my account. I think I need to update to 7.0.2 but Google play doesn't have it yet. Everytime I open my message+ app it says get started and something about sending me a text to authenticate. It gets old seeing that message. It even says it when I click on the notification. How do I get the update so I can actually activate my account??

  31. Grace C-avatar

    The app was a 5 star before. But recently update screw things up. No more schedule message, used to be able to press and hold the sent button. Secondly, when I send a picture message it gets stuck on loading and never sent. I tried everything, check cell signal, reboot phone, Uninstaller and reinstall app, nothing works. Please fix it. Thank you.

  32. Sarah Sperry-avatar

    I've used this app for years. I just recently upgraded to the Samsung 20 Ultra 5G and now i have so many issues with this app! Stops working frequently. The most annoying part is it has major issues sending photos through the app. Every single time it freezes the app and I can only get a couple of photos through after closing and re-opening 5 times. Even with the update that was supposedly supposed to fix the issue.

  33. Michael Woody-avatar

    Terrible UI, not sure who's idea it was to put the icon to send voice messages easily accessible to accidental touch, but it just absurdly screwed up my life. I had sent a message to my boss and didn't close up the app as I had thought. I was "hanging out" with my significant other in a NSFW manner at home and it recorded every detail and sent it to them because the microphone icon at the bottom right of the screen had been ever so slightly pressed.

  34. Dianne Cox-avatar

    Something happened with the latest upgrade. I am now having issues texting to my contacts who are iphone users. My text messages now show up as a number and not my name. I can prove a screenshot of what is received. My options also changed to MMS, Enhanced and Broadcast. I do not understand the change and have not been able to find any information. Please assist...

  35. Colleen Burke-avatar

    What happened? I can't download a personalized text notification for contacts. I used to have different fun notification sounds for different people. It gives me that option for ringtones. I recently lost my phone and my replacement downloaded past texts that are "marked not read". All 83! why isn't there an option to check box and mark them read or delete. So now I have to go open 83 messages to make the app icon go away? Used to love this app...

  36. Lauren Presson-avatar

    UPDATE: Still no resolution. This app is a pain. A long time ago, the app randomly stopped notifying me when I got texts (the screen won't light up and a notification icon appears for a split second then goes away) despite my preferences. Now whenever I try sending pictures to my contacts, the app gets stuck on "adding attachments" until I close it. Upon reentering, sometimes the picture has sent and sometimes it hasn't. At this point I'm thinking of switching my primary texting app.

  37. Mark-avatar

    I just downloaded this app hoping it would allow me to text my friends and family from my tablet instead of having to reach for my phone. ( if I'm already utilizing my tablet anyway ). It appears I will be able to do such, however, while their phone numbers transfered to my tablet, there are no names showing up with the phone numbers or in place of the phone number. Like many people today, I do not know many of my contacts phone numbers. I'll look for their names when I go to my text app.

  38. A Google user-avatar

    So ever since my last two updates on my phone it takes over 3 minutes to send a 30 to 40 second video which is absolutely RIDICULOUS... And if it does not send before you try to send another message it will stop sending it and you have to go back onto it for to start sending it again... It's a good thing I'm not hanging by my sack waiting it for to go through...

  39. c W-avatar

    Update: 27APR2020, so message+ was working for a bit but apparently a recent update has set it back. Cannot send video clips because they're corrupted files when recorded. This app was decent a few years ago but now it constantly freezes. There's a list of other U/I issues and every update they have is massive. Its very buggy and has a tendency to fail sending media of any kind especially if the other person doesn't have message+, it doesn't communicate well with others.

  40. Tim Newcomb-avatar

    I had the same problem as most of you guys did where the app was crashing. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and for me it seemed to work fine. there is an option to restore your messages and for the most part it works and will restore your messages. I have used it. you will have to go into the settings for the app not your phone. go to your messages and click on the three lines in the upper left corner and then go to account and there is a feature saying restore messages. just trying to help

  41. Larry Fent-avatar

    Why is it so difficult to build upon an older app instead of starting from new. Developers miss some of the best parts of the old app. In this instance, the failure is that there is no way to attach a pic or text to a group message in 'message plus' without typing each individual name in the address bar. In old 'message', of course, the paperclip icon was right on top, one click, viola!

  42. Alma Sowell-avatar

    I live this app. Wrll sometimes it acts up but for the most part it's pretty darn good. But it keeps shifting on my phone and when I looked this morn the icon was gone.

  43. Tim Marsh-avatar

    Have this installed on both my primary Pixel phone as well as a Palm Phone as a shared number device. They are supposed to share both the phone number of my primary phone, which it does, as well as SMS messages, which it used to do but no longer does. Verizon told me an recent update broke this feature. Why and when will this be fixed?

  44. Holly Hawke-avatar

    I do not recommend this app. It's clunky and difficult to use, settings do not actually save, and recently I've been having issues with messages not sending (or sending on a significant delay). I finally switched to the regular message app hidden on my phone and everything appears to be working fine now. There are many phones who come preloaded with this app by default, but it's not worth it. I recommend switching to the other message app already on your phone or downloading a while new one.

  45. Havilah Bear-avatar

    "I'd give a 5 star but unable to receive group txt🤷🏼‍♀️But recently it's been acting up." The app updated! Works perfectly!! Super grateful for the notification that it need the update. Seriously this msg app is one of the best💖 When it was acting up I tried over 15 different ones trying to get close to the customization this app provides 😍 I love this app! Keep up the great work! I love cars & trucks everyone in my phone has a different wallpaper of a BMW or FORD💖 Yehueh Bless~

  46. Wil Marrow-avatar

    It works fine like any other generic messaging app. But there's one complaint that pisses me off. Emojis are not an option, they're forced. When I want a stupid cartoon googly-eyed freak in my texts, I'll go into the emoji menu and select one. Make emojis optional and I have no complaints, but now instead of nuanced and vague emotions, i'm sending these overly exggerated looney toon knock-offs because some developer thought it would be cute.

  47. Marie-avatar

    I've used this app for years with no probs. But now I can't send/receive group texts. It will start off ok, but then a few messages into the convo it will stop working. The group texts I receive get stuck on "downloading" & mine always say "sending." This happened mid-conversation. Everything was working fine & then it stopped. If the incoming group msgs do finally download & appear, it's a half hour later. Please fix! Add'l prob: can't send photos. Gets stuck on "sending." It worked yesterday.

  48. Matriarch SC-avatar

    Damn big IS NOT FIXED. Can't attach pictures to messages. I do not want a work around, I want your app to work like you claim it works 😡 and allow pictures of grandbabies to be attached within a message. UPDATE: Received the update and downloaded. Seems to be attaching pictures everytime. Slight change in other somethings (fonts, size, icons), but so far so good. Thank you

  49. Nick James-avatar

    Why can't I just use Samsung continuity? This is a really clumsy way to do this when Samsung just builds it in. Please allow for Samsung continuity. I am tired of Verizon micromanaging everything. Update: won't verify an emergency address so I can't use the calling feature. The only reason I wanted this app was for that since Google Messages already has a texting feature that is far superior. So as I thought, this app is trash and you need to unlock Samsung continuity

  50. Kristen Key-avatar

    This app can do way more than the average messaging app. They have cool backgrounds, different types of fonts, and can even send large videos that a normal message app would be unable to send. This app is awesome and I love it. But beware it takes a few min to send large videos. But overall I highly recommend this app.

  51. Morgan Wagner-avatar

    I absolutely love the updated design! It makes me feel more comfortable that I can personalize my conversations with my friends and family.

  52. Elizabeth Molina-avatar

    Elizabeth Molina


    Guess I'm not the only one having issues. My complaint is not about the font like alot of others are but the fact that my messages are so wonky in any of my group chats! I either don't get the message someone sends, or they start reappearing out of order. It's just bizarre how this app is acting after I've been using it for so many years. Stop trying to "fix" things because it always screws them up

    It's super easy to use. Love it and its great that I can back up my messages. Just sucks that it doesn't include the theme that I download on my phone. The theme only works on the regular messaging app not Verizon Messages so it kind of makes me want to switch to the regular messaging app just to enjoy the theme 😑

    Update. Verizon helped me deal with the emoji suggestion problem. You may have to toggle the "show emoji suggestions" switch to get it to work. I had "show emoji suggestions" turned off but it still made the suggestions. Made it hard to edit words highlighted that way and inappropriate for business use. Toggling the switch helped. Otherwise a very good app.

    This is an incredible app and I love being able to use it. My only issue, and I would greatly appreciate someone reaching out to me, is that recently in the last 3 weeks or so I'm unable to send nor receive pictures and screenshots to certain users. When I text a picture or a regular message to user A it will display "delivered" and they respond. If I text user B a regular message it displays "delivered" but if it's a picture it says "sent" and they never got it. Help please?

    I have been getting a message that my s9's storage is full, so I have been trying to free up space on my phone. My Message+ app is using quite a bite of storage, so I am trying to figure out how to change the settings in that app to automatically delete after a certain time, or number of texts. Everything I have read, or video I have watche on how to do this on my Galaxy S9 does not work. It shows options and menus to click that are not on my phone. It should not be this difficult!

    Surprisingly the best alternative to iMessage on the Android platform. Changing my review from 5 to 1 star. Verizon dropped support for Windows 10. Also cannot activate any tablet because the app cannot read QR codes. Totally ruined this previously good app. Verizon continues to shoot themselvesmin the foot. Will leave their wireless service soon.

    Extremely Disappointed!!! This is terrible!!! Glitches/errors!!!! I really hate that I can no longer use the calling feature in this app to make calls on my Galaxy Tab A 8.0 tablet. The calling feature is greyed out, no longer works as of the last few updates. Messages not syncing. This used to be a great app. I'm currently looking for another messaging app that will allow phone calls on the tablet. I have emailed the developers several times w/ no positive response. 1 star

  59. Neil Skoog-avatar

    After changing from business plan to personal plan the App began to work as advertised. Texts between smart phone and tablet are linked nicely. Improved rating as a result. As of 6.9.13 incoming messages on go to phone not to tablet. Still waiting for a fix to linking email. Sent logs to developers, but I only get canned message response. Every message starts with "what devices are you using" Does not work with Samsung Tablet and Samsung S7 phone.

    I like this app, but it sends gifs/stickers too easily! Please add delayed sending or editing. Most messaging apps allow editing/text with gifs/ stickers (in case one clicks on a gif/sticker while scrolling). And also, a delay sending for text (by a few seconds as offered by other apps) option would be ideal because autocorrect has gotten stranger, oddly changing text. Thanks.

  61. Ebony Brewer-avatar

    Awesome App with Great Features I love that I can login online and access my texts WHEN I leave my phone elsewhere! I am even able to access messages that I have blocked from my phone...... That's really cool too! I love the in-app messaging extras of sending GIFs and stickers and sweet Emojis! You can also finally schedule messages now too! No issues here so far and I've used it for a couple years now!

  62. Eric Ubelhor-avatar

    I like the app. I also like the shiny bubbles with the Avitar. It works fine until you create a group. Then it drops either the shiny bubbles & or random Avitars. I'm sure they'll figure it out, but until then it's annoying. 3/29 still kicks my shiny bubbles off in place of colored lines & no avatars. Still obliterates my shiny bubbles & Avatars ☹️.

  63. Pamela Milburn-avatar

    I used to love this app but now most of my messages are being stuck at sent, not delivered. That's very frustrating. It did not do this before. I either have to cut, copy and resend message or send a screenshot. Text messaging is supposed to be simple. I've had this app for years, this is a new issue. I've updated it when I first noticed it but problem has not improved. If someone doesn't have 'read' notifications on that's one thing but messages aren't even being delivered. Frustrating.

  64. Ashley C.-avatar

    I can't send group messages without everyone getting multiples of the same message. And I used to have a problem with the app restarting itself and causing me to re-enter my information like I had just downloaded the app, but I haven't had THAT problem recently. But this is twice now that I've tried to send a message to multiple people and EVERYBODY received the same message the amount of times equal to the amount of recipients. Three strikes and you're out, Verizon. I'm done with this app.

  65. Laura Culver-avatar

    What is going on with this app?? This is the only messaging app I actually like. Debating now to switch to the Samsung messaging app if this continues. After this last update, my app freezes in the middle of texts, sometimes won't send pics, the app shuts down, it gets a white screen, it has weird characters in texts, I get double texts from same person, sometimes the same previous text from someone I'll get hours later, and its super glitchy and freezes all the time. Verizon...fix please!!

  66. Blake Leibeck-avatar

    Overall like the app but after an update I can no longer take a picture and send it in the app, it allows me to take a picture and give me the option to approve or delete but if I got the approve check mark it closes out and doesn't send, very annoying to have to exit the app take a picture and save it on my phone then open the app again and send it from my photos

  67. Lucas Heffner-avatar

    I was having difficulty with my messages going out in a timely manner. I have a third party non Verizon phone with no CDMA. If you are using the app for that purpose I would recomend it. It has resolved all of my issues. Otherwise I see no reason to use it. It is frankly garish even on the best settings and it is clunkier than the Google messenger app. I would love to see a design update that resembles the other major apps. This feels like a trip back to 2005.

  68. Dan Serviss-avatar

    Recently started receiving many spam messages. while traveling internationally, wifi access is pretty dependable. in Settings/Application i select Sync over Wifi Only to receive texts without paying for an international plan. Stupidly, it only works NOT in aitplane mode but it needs to at least have cellular network connection. However multiple times i find that Sync over Wifi Only is checked off and all of a sudden any texts that come in i am now bring charged for.

  69. David Feudale-avatar

    I really like this app and it has been my default messaging platform for some time now. There are many alternatives that I've tried but they are always lacking key features this app offers. I love the typing indicators, enhanced chats and reliability of this app even though some advanced features are missing. The biggest con I have is the UI - it's not terrible, but far from pretty. I've used many other platforms that are more refined visually and just nicer. Otherwise it's a great app. 👍

  70. Ali Kat-avatar

    As of 4/8/2020 the vibrate and edge light notifications don't work on my phone and my daughter's phone (we have the same phone - galaxy note 10+). None of my settings changed and I tried unintalling and reinstalling and its still not working. I tried messaging Verizon but the person messaging me back kept disappearing and tried to claim it was an issue with messaging.

  71. G G-avatar

    TERRIBLE THEN GREAT Just updated to most recent version and now I can't even open the app AT ALL. WHY?????? Update: the ONLY way this app works is if you make it your default and I was hesitant but I'm glad I did make it the default because it ended up syncing up all my messages and the previous videos that came into my phone were poor quality but viewing them through this app made the videos clearer. Worth it!

  72. Andrea Fox-avatar

    My inidividual texts, pictures, and group texts won't send or download. So I'm not seeing anything from my family or friends. I had to do a factory reset a week ago because of this. And now, after restarting my phone 2x, it's still doing it. What's the issue Verizon? This frustrating.

  73. Megan Mills-avatar

    I have used and loved this app for years. However, in the last few months, I've been having a major issue that is really impacting my usage of the app. I only get notified for maybe half of my received texts. If the issue could be resolved, it would go back to being an almost perfect app. 👌

    I used this app all the time when I got my phone. It was fine. Until recently. Now I can't hear incoming text messages so after reading all the tech stuff YouTube vids and how to fix the app I just gave up and changed to another message service. I hope they fix the bug soon. Any text message service is worthless if you can't hear the text message coming in! (And no it had nothing to do with my phone or it's settings it was the Verizon app) the phone works perfectly with the other message service

  75. Tyler Betts-avatar

    Used to love this app, but can't use pictures within app. If I try to take a picture and send, it crashes and if I try to attach a picture, it freezes. My only work around is to navigate to the picture and choose share with ... (Plus it lost the ability to create gifs a while back)

  76. Sno Buni-avatar

    Update: within the last hour sending pictures seems to be working a lot better on the app. 🤞 thanks for taking care of the issue Verizon! 👍 This has been my favorite app for years. So much so that when I moved carriers I still downloaded this app because I love it so much. HOWEVER since the last update of both my phone and the app I cam only sometimes if I'm lucky send a picture or video. If I take the picture with the app it usually works but I can no longer attach pictures. This sucks!

  77. Amy Long-avatar

    Most dictating and unfriendly APP. If you use this app to send videos or multimedia messages to your friends it will FORCE them to download and set as default for their messages and calls. I think friends would prefer you not tell them to change their default messaging app just to view your video or picture. Asking permission to access necessary information is one thing but leave my settings alone.

  78. John Kelley-avatar

    Pretty decent messaging app with verizon. The main issue with it is sending video. It ses to take a very long time to send videos. It very well could be the network, but it always that way and not at certain times. It takes around a minute or two, no joke, to send a video. Sometimes the video does t even send and just fails. Other than this issue, it works well with lots of cool features. I do still recommend the app.

  79. A Google user-avatar

    This app used to work, now for a few weeks now it doesn't work on my tablet. Although it still works on my phone. So I uninstalled it and reinstalled it hoping it would work. Asks for my phone number. Then says it will send a QR code to scan. But it never sends me a code. I did not need to scan a qr code for my phone. Don't know what's going on.

  80. Maddy Terrell-avatar

    I keep recieving double messages, however not all of my messages are doubled, only some. Usually, I'll receive a notification of a message and then I go to check on it and respond to it. Then I'll leave the message app and about 1-3 minutes later I'll get a notification for that exact same message. I have confirmed that the message was not repeated by the other person and they don't have a repeated message from they're end. It happens with messages from people with different carriers or phones

  81. Joyce Esker-avatar

    Just installed an update and like the new look interface. Clean and crisp. Had an excellent experience with VZM support team. I was experiencing a problem on my slightly older Motorola phone, they responded quickly, directed me to collect the necessary debug info, and the update they provided solved the problem.

    I'm going to try the app again after this latest update. Verizon wireless is my phone service provider but I switched my messaging app of choice to Samsung (I have a Samsung Note 5 phone) because Verizon's did not allow me to schedule messages and I couldn't make out any of the suggested word changes in the pop-up box when texting because there was too little contrast between letters and the background. It was very frustrating. If it works well this time I will update my 1 star rating. UPDATE

  83. Maria McCubbin-avatar

    Downloaded this app to be able to view the higher quality videos someone was sending. So far no problems. My only complaint is in the other app I was using when I would send a link it would show as something similar to a 2 line preview. There would be a sort of preview picture of the link I sent. This makes it easy to go back and find a link I sent. Wondering if there is a way to that through settings with this app. If there is I haven't found it.

  84. Sandy Garcia-avatar

    This app is garbage. You cant recieve any messages. Or you can't find them. All it ever says is " Please wait. Starting." Its been starting for 3 days. Dont download it. I still can't get it to work. Sorry. Maybe other people will have better luck with theirs. Upping the rating to 3 stars fir the timely abd considerate response. Also, all the play store apps are saying the same thing. " Starting. Please wait." This app is still garbage. This service is awful. Phone and internet. Fades in and ou

    Used to love this messaging app but since it updated I've had nothing but problems. My preferred speech isn't saved no matter how many times I correct it and click that stupid check saying its right. Can't find any way to add words to this dictionary its pulling from. Real disappointment. Edit: Switched apps. Bye Felicia 👋

  86. Rachel Watt-avatar

    I love this texting app better than most apps I've seen, the only issue I've been having lately is that I'll send a picture message to someone, it'll say delivered, but then a few days later, it shows a little symbol and says the picture failed to deliver, please fix this.

  87. Eva Poythress-avatar

    When my phone is off and I'm accessing the app from my tablet, I'm unable to see the emojis my friends send me and it just shows up as question marks. It makes me have to rely on context clues and although I'm able to, I'd prefer not to have to. Otherwise it's fine, everything syncs great and works well.

  88. Brady Jones-avatar

    App used to be great, last update that "fixed" bugs that I never experienced has made this app almost unusable to me. I can no longer send or search for gifs or videos. It randomly resends old messages, sometimes messages that are months old. Messages come in out of order. Complete garbage now.

  89. Christopher Schick-avatar

    Christopher Schick


    Overall this app is a nice improvement over the default message app in Android but there seems to be a persistent bug which continually sends images I've previously sent, multiple times, randomly. The recipients are highly annoyed and what's worse, people whom I don't know really well, may not say anything at all. I presume they're just left with thinking that I'm a little strange. Please investigate and fix this highly annoying issue!!

  90. Ross DeVol-avatar

    Buggy. When I send a picture and include text with multiple newlines (e.g. 4 lines of text, hitting enter between each), it assumes it's an address and renders it with Glympse. This causes the text to not show up, and the picture can't be saved. I don't even use Glympse. This should be a setting. Also, sometimes it changes the timestamps of pictures I send, so that the message appears to be more recent than it is. This makes messages appear out of order.

    I think that the app works for sending texts. I feel that there are far too many options for different settings to change the keyboard. I need a larger screen for it to be something useful. On my Moto-e 6 I have trouble typing unless I flip it on it's side which I always feel takes me longer to adjust to the difference in keyboard configuration and I prefer to type with my phone vertically. I would recommend it for people who like to have lots of options to send much more than just words.

  92. John Murphy-avatar

    Tring to send pictures lately means seeing your screen say "loading attachment" for 15 minutes. Also won't send gifs anymore. Made an attempt at resolving it with customer service today. Twice. Dead end the first time because they apparently have up, and ignored the second time. $140+ per month. Thanks V

  93. Chad Beckwith-avatar

    I've been using this app for years. Yesterday I dropped my Samsung Note 8 and the screen went black with a blue light at the top. I've been able to retrieve most data from google, yet the text messages are gone now. It's there a way to retrieve the old text messages?

  94. Susan Kovel-avatar

    All of a sudden for no reason in order to use messenger on my tablet, I have to scan in a code they send to me on my phone. I've tried and tried. I've looked it up and tried 3 different ways. I just don't know how to do it. Can someone please tell me how to get back this app on my Samsung tablet? Please tell me in easy-speak as I am 78 yo and not computer savvy. Thank you.

  95. Ryan Andress-avatar

    After a few months of use I haven't had a single technical issue with this app from receiving texts to editing options. The interface is customizable with many options so visibility was never an issue. You have plenty of options, too, from chat bubble colors to the theme of the app itself! The only feature it's missing is the ability to select multiple conversations at once for deletion purposes, but besides that it's a simple and very solid texting app.

  96. Bill Connolly-avatar

    If you have a problem with getting notifications try restarting your phone.

  97. A Google user-avatar

    UPDATE.. UPDATE..... THIS IS BIGGEST POS APP EVER... EVEN AFTER TALKING WITH VERIZON. THIS IS THE WORST APP EVER..what the hell Verizon! after every update this app gets worse! note when someone sends you a msg in the morning it doesn't show up till the evening. stop messing with a app that was great. time to go back to regular messaging at least that works

    Not getting all of the messages or getting them at random times. Me and my family have a group chat. Before I didn't have any issues with the app, but just recently I started suspecting that I must not be receiving all of their messages, or they finally show up hours later out of context. Now I'll get random messages and I don't even know anymore if they were replies to the most recent conversation or something we talked about last night. Very annoying and frustrating.

    I really don't like a page that pops up on too of my front page icons. And it does not appear to be the same red messaging app. I'm constantly reading it and sometimes use it for a quick response but usually back out to the front home page and go into the shortcut.

  100. Grace Morris-avatar

    This is a great app. But the last few days it has been acting super strange. Like when I send my messages it says that the message failed to send then I send it again, but it already went through the first time. So I end up sending the message like 3 times.
