    I like the clean and minimal look of the app but theres very little you can change inside the app. No color changes is a little annoying. Also, you cant change with the swipe function does on a conversation. You swipe left or right and both of them ask if you want to archive the conversation. You cant switch it to have one "delete"? Edge lighting doesnt work with it??? I cant schedule a text?????

    I like Samsung messages better. Scheduling delivery of messages, pinning of contacts, synced text messages on my tab S4. RCS support will be great addition.

    I tried Textra 2 years ago and I hated it. Has it gotten better?

    It's the beauty of Android. Google's is plan and simple and pretty lightweight. But anyone can make something more powerful, more capable (within the limits of the SDK and the Play Store rules).

    Why doesn't Google's have extra features beyond what is needed for a minimal messenge app? If you're looking for the real answer, you'd have to ask Google. All we can do here is guess.

    I used it for years and the only reason I can't go back to it now is that Samsung Messages is the only one supported on my Samsung smart watch *looks* *shrugs*

    What did you think needed improvement? I've used it for the last 3.5 years with little to no issues.

    Like above, I'd like different options when you swipe left vs. right on messages - delete vs archive. I'd also like to pin your contact/message thread to the top of the list. Scheduling messages would be a definite added bonus!!

    Really? Which app are you using on your smartwatch? And, if I may ask, which smartwatch do you use?

    I used Textra for a long time and had no issues. Loved the customization, but now I'm using Messages (love RCS). The inability to customize colors is not the end of the world, swiping to delete would be great, but again, not huge. To me, the best feature Google could add is the option to display ONLY mobile numbers for my contacts. I don't need their work or home numbers as options. Annoying when you're in a hurry or accidentally hit the wrong number, and the message rejects. One of my biggest peeves, though, is a Samsung thing... No pop-ups!! What's up with that dumb move?!

    Textra. Everything that is Textra should be messages. Rpt notifications. Group texts with different color bubbles/contact. Mobile number only. Swipe away notification = read. (RCS to Textra is my dream)

    Every messaging app I've used allows me to reply to messages from my Tizen based watches, but I can't start new messages.

    Pulse SMS has it all (private messages, scheduling, delayed sending, pin contacts, mute & snooze texts, etc.). But gave it up after years for Messages and RCS. So really need the little things. Like a Delete link in the notification (duh!), a delete in the swipe (Really Google, left or right swipe only archives c'mon!). The rest above that Pulse has, probably years away...
