    This enhanced messaging is well intentioned, but will prove almost useless to those of us in the US unless Samsung grows a pair when it comes to dealing with these carriers. Guess which OEM wouldn't dream of allowing carriers to interfere with their "enhanced messaging"? Samsung tries to be like their arch rival in many ways but standing up against carrier interference and BS is ONE thing they haven't copied, and they need to.

    I guess you can just use the link to Google photos. It seems to do the same thing without the verification.

    I'm on AT&T and have the option of using Get link or Hangouts (my text app) to share. Its done through the Google Photos app and should work for any carrier.

    Yea, I stated that in the beginning of this thread. Thats the way I do it. Use to go through Dropbox and then get a link from there.

    What others posted in this thread are the ways.

    There is no way around just sending it via MMS. The carrier will always degrade it and there is no way to stop it -- hence the other ways of sharing are required.

    I'm sorry but this is a huge win for Apple. How can they come out with imessage and Samsung just sit back and not do anything. Google needs to develop something as well smh

    I'm sure if they could they would. But I do believe it's a restriction by the carriers.

    Well it's definitely a win.. If the other person you're sending the video to has an iPhone. If not... They're in the same boat as us.

    Apple can develop iMessage which is basically like all the options here (another service) since they can't get by the MMS restriction either. The difference is Apple controls every little piece of their OS for every phone so developing this and implementing it is a lot easier than it would be for Android. Mainly because Android can be modified as we learned from this thread where the Verizon variant doesn't have the simply share option.

    I'm sure they would do it if it was easy enough. Some carriers (like T-Mobile) are developing things like "Advanced Messaging" to do this very thing like iMessage.

    but when the recipient clicks the link, what do they see?
    And here lies the problem when sending links to others. I can bet 99.9% will think this link is some type of virus or dangerous link and not open it.

    Totally agree with you. It is a HUGE win for Apple. And those crafty S.Koreans are just sitting back wondering why their share price and market share is dwindling......

    Well, I can easily tell them that I'm sending them a video through a link. I just want to know how they see it.

    Really? My friends / family open links from me without hesitation. Why would they think I'd do that to them? :what:

    Us Android (Note) users hopefully realize that we ARE the minority. I have 373 contacts in my Note 5 that I brought over from my iPhone 6. Of those 373 contacts only 4 are Android users, yes 4. So for me, sending a video via MMS is finished...No more.

    Mine is pretty much the opposite. Maybe a handful (7 or so) of my friends and family have iPhones. The rest are Android.

    How many videos are you all sending and receiving? Me personally, I send and receive maybe 2 videos a month.

    Hi, Honestly not that many, probably 1-2 a week at most. But when you really want your recipient to see a video quickly and easily and they can't
    it is a huge PITA and letdown. I might very possibly pay another $10 and get a SIM card for my iPhone and carry it in tandem with the Note just for sending videos... And if I do that I'd like to send out a HUGE thank you to Samsung-AT&T-Google for continuing onwards with their segregation and chopped up OS.

    It does. I have used links in the past and all I hear from the recipient is "No I deleted the link because I thought it was dangerous"....
    Sending links works regardless if it is from Dropbox, Google Photos, etc..But honestly iMessage nailed it big time !

    I for one don't share videos through the messaging app. I use whatsapp if I need to show something to someone. Yes quality is not great. But so much easier.
    I agree that sending a link isn't the same as sending a picture. Specially with things like stage fright going around there is a security concern as well. And it's just easier to use the thumbnail of the image in the convo. You can see the images or videos when you scroll through instead of links.
