    Did use Verizon Message+ for a few years; until Messages got web integration.

    Using Textra on Pixel 3 with Verizon and getting all texts promptly, at least from Favorites. Have not checked other contacts.

    I use textra, but would rather use stock app. Reason I'm not using stock messaging app is because it doesn't work with Android Auto when I receive group messages.

    This is the only thing I am missing from my last years of iPhone and that is iMessage.. Allo is awesome but can't text from it which is lame... hoping they get RCS baked into the standard app and carrier support ASAP.

    Tetra for me. I'd use messages but can't live without send when pressing enter.
    I haven't tried pulse for a long while and I used to love chomp but textra is the best now

    Textra recognizes Contact Groups. Best texting app in my opinion.

    Textra does it all for me. Too bad my new Pixel 3 XL doesn't have a notification LED light.

    I use standard Messages, however I use Allo as well and prefer it. Just can't get anyone to use it with me other than my wife and mother.

    And really, who among us Google fans is not tired of trying to get others to use an app or service that Google created, nerfed, failed to support, then killed? That is where I am at, just tired. There are only so many times I can get the non-techies around me to try the new thing. This is where I'd like to see Google focus more -- complete the development of just 1 of your "universal/unified communication" apps, pleeeease.
