    Default Maxx 4.4 share issues

    I've noticed lately that whenever I try and share anything I no longer get an option to choose how its shared. Now the messages app automatically opens. I've tried clearing the defaults for the messages app but that didn't help. Anyone else having this issue?

    A couple of questions.... Do you use default messenger or Hangouts as your primary SMS? Also, you said you have cleared the defaults for the messages app, but do one thing, check to make sure the default messaging app is selected as well. You'll find it under the following:

    Settings -> Under Wireless & Networks (More...) -> Default SMS app

    The other thing you may want to try doing is disabling the standard messaging app altogether. Once we are on 4.4.2, the stock messaging app will be gone and replaced by Hangouts.

    I have been using hangouts as my default. I disabled the standard messages app and that fixed the issue. Thank you for the help

    As it turns out, that's a bug in version 4.4 that affects some people - see Cult of Android MobileFix The Share Menu Bug In Android 4.4 Kitkat [How-To] | Cult of Android

    Good to see that you got it solved, though.
