    Is it just me or is everyone else not getting chat bubbles in the google messages app on their Pixel 5? I've tried everything and still nothing. I know it works in the beta app but I don't want to be in beta. Help!

    Go to Settings>Apps, select Messages, then Notifications. There's no Bubbles option there?

    Yes there's the option and I have "all messages can bubble" enabled. I still don't get the bubble chats.

    Just in case, make sure that the 'Display over other apps' permission is enabled for the Messages app.

    Not sure in Android 11, try in settings - apps - special access - display over other apps or use the search feature in the settings.

    Found the setting in Android 11 but Google messages is not one of the apps given as an option.

    I don't see those options when I tap "Bubbles". Sad!

    Yes it is! Is it weird that I'm assuming the S10 would be able to get this feature if I'm using Google's Messages app? Or is it purely for Pixels running Messages?

    Well, just out of curiosity, are you enrolled in the Google Messages beta program? Because if you’re not, you won’t get the chat bubble unfortunately. Only the beta program has The chat bubbles enabled. On my pixel 5, chat bubbles work beautiful!

    I'm not in the beta. I didn't realize chat bubbles was a beta feature since there is a setting for it in the main settings app.

    yeah, I really do! I’m not so sure what chapel balls are considered a bit of program feature either. However, they are. You have to be enrolled in the beta program of Google messenger to get the chat bubbles. Check it out I think you might like it!

    I think Google posted that it was rolling out to everyone a few months ago, and put the option in Settings. But it seems like it never really rolled out to everyone yet, still seems to be stuck in beta for some reason. Kind of like Assistant Driving Mode, they said that was rolling out in November and it's still not available to everyone.
