    The new google messenger app does not display emergency alerts. I have the LG V10 and im using the default app and i see an amber alert in it but in the google messenger app it isn't there. anyone else experience this issue?

    That's interesting that you get Amber Alerts through your stock messaging app. I believe all Android phones can get Amber Alerts as an Emergency Cell Broadcast, which is separate from any messaging app. Do you not have that option, or do you have a preference for seeing these alerts in a messaging app?

    for some reason on the LGV10 they come thru the messenger app. i had a nexus 5 and i would also see them in my text messenger app. i checked the settings on the phone and they are turned on. but for some reason on the google text messenger app they dont show. In the stock app theres a setting for emergency alerts. on googles messaging app theres no setting for emergency alerts.

    Ok, I see that also in Hangouts (which I use as my SMS app), under Settings>SMS>Wireless Alerts.

    I just installed Messenger to look myself. I found in its Settings>Advanced menu, there's a Wireless Alerts option. That takes me to the emergency cell broadcasts. Do you see that?

    so i did some more digging and them seems like its a LG issue. i read a forum where someone stated that LG changed the emergency alert setting from the regular settings to the default messaging app settings. so the only way you can see them on a lg phone is by using the default messaging app.
