    Is this new? I was going to use Hangouts for SMS but this popped up. What makes it better?
    It's been out for a while. But its clean and simple and works well.

    Has some additional features that make it comparable to imessage or other services. Some of the options are in the screenshot. Most SMS apps cant/don't do this.

    Hangouts > Allo > Google Messenger > whatever else there is.

    Textra. However I have a feeling Google allo will be out this week sometime since nougat is being released on the 22nd. Just my thoughts
    Allo is not an SMS client though, it is a messaging app (like WhatsApp, etc). Both parties have to have Allo for it to work.

    How do you do gif search on Textra?
    Hit the "+" sign to the left of the text input box, and select "gif" in the bottom row - second from the right. Search away!

    I'm coming from an LGG4 to the Note 7. I tried all the messaging apps and had settled on Yaata. It's a very good app. Since getting my Note I've been happily using the stock messaging and keyboard. They are surprisingly good.

    In theory yes, but it's been hit or miss for me with various apps. I used to use chomp and love it compared to hangouts, but I don't use a nexus and hate having 3 txting apps on my device. Stock, Hangouts and then a third party app.

    I use QKSMS because of its integration with the blocker "Should I answer?"

    Yaata to me is by far my favorite text app on Android.

    are there any message apps that let you schedule a text for a future time, back on my JB iPhone days i used BiteSMS and it allowed this, loved the feature.
    its already in Samsung Messages -- when you compose a message you click on the menu button to show a selection for Schedule Message

    Unfortunately, now with Marshmallow there is not native menu button, so you have to activate it by going to Settings → Accessibility → Dexterity and Interaction → and turn on Assistant Menu. This will add a floating button to the screen that you can press to reveal a menu containing the old Menu button.

    Well, it seems it is still a bit unstable. After a recent update it started misbehaving, since last night, I have temporarily gone back to stock SMS app. I will give it a try after a while, right now I would not recommend it any longer.

    OT: "Should I answer?", on the other hand, is a great blocking app, the best I have tried.

    Make sure you didn't accidentally deny media permissions to Textra within the Applications area in settings.
