    There are some aesthetic changes to my theme, most annoying the white on white messaging bubble and text. I tried other themes but the colors still don't match the description.
    This happened to anyone else? Any fix?

    I spent hours today working on this issue, making my brain mushy with frustration and my eyes blind from squinting to read white-on-white texts. When can we expect an update, Samsung?? This is ridiculous.

    This is EXTREMELY frustrating seeing that 99% of my communicating is through text. Anyone figure out a way to fix this? Or will there be another update soon? This is unacceptable to an extreme measure. Who ever even put this change in the update should be fired.

    Have you tried any other texting apps? Textra is a good one that allows customisation of colours.

    This is annoying to me too, the only fix I have found for the time being is using a theme that has black text or a darker text so it shows up in the white messaging bubbles. Hope this helps everyone for the time being.

    You could also use something like chomp SMS as your default messaging app.

    Not sure if anyone is still suffering from the upgrade with the text bubbles white on white....
    If so, the fix is to change you Theme. For whatever reason when the upgrade completed it updated your current theme as well. So just pick a different theme and make sure before you apply that you look at description and see what text bubbles look like.

    Your welcome! ❤️🐷

    Thanks Reck2020 - I went into my themes and tried to reapply the one I was using and found out there was an updated version, so I downloaded and applied that "version 2" and the messages bubbles are now legible. So I didn't have to totally change my theme to something else. I just updated it to the newer version and that worked.
