    All my receiving messages on the stock texting app is a white bubble with white text. Ive tried changing the theme and restarting my phone. I have a 100% up to date Samsung galaxy s7 active. It was immedietly after updating my phone on march 13 2018 that this bug started effecting my device. I would really like to not have to reset my phone.

    Are you using the stock messaging app? Does it still have the option to change font color/bubbles? The update might have forced the font to be white all the time, so any theme you apply with white bubbles will not work (a lot of people had issues with that when they switched from darker elements in KitKat to white ones in Lollipop and Oreo; older themes wouldn't work because they'd hide certain lighter elements).

    Well here is a way to temporary fix the white on white message bubbles untill android or Samsung fixes the problem.
    1: go to settings-accessibility-vision and turn on high contrast font
    2: go to settings - display - screen zoom & font and pick a different font

    Any suggestions on a particular font to use? I already tried this and it does work but it's incredibly difficult to read with the standard fonts, gets blurry

    For reading on a screen (as opposed to reading on paper) a sans serif font is best (a serif font is best for print on paper), but your eyes determine which one is best for you. Just try a few until you find one that looks best. (It may not look good, but you should be able to find one that's good enough until Samsung fixes things.)
