    I see this app called Messenger in the bottom left of my Nexus 6P, is this like the SMS app for the stock Android?

    Shall I replace it with Textra? I like that Textra has the ability to blacklist spam SMS, can Messenger do this?

    I like Messenger. I use it on my other Android phones as well as the 6P. It is just Googles version of the SMS app.

    Hi, yes this is the stock messaging app that comes on Nexus devices - it's downloadable from the play store and is called Google Messenger. If you prefer Textra then yeah it ill be easy enough for you to swap it out.

    Yeah.... I'm with you. I know that the dedicated SMS apps do a bit better job of handling things than Hangouts, but I like being able to combine two apps into one.

    The thing is, here in Dubai noone uses Hangouts, they use either Whatsapp, Viber, imo, or Skype, that's why I usually disable Hangouts altogether.
