    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.

    I don't see those options in the settings of the stock app. Is it carrier specific?

    I used Textra on my LG G3, G2, and Nexus 4 and found it the best. I think I didn't like the stock app on the G3 because of the look of UI and I believe the text area was too small not enough real estate to see all you are typing before sending and not showing enough conversation on the screen.

    But playing with the Note 7 I like the clean look of the UI and bubbles and the screen is so big I don't think I'll have a problem seeing enough text and conversation on the screen. So I'd like to try and stick with the stock app. If not then most likely Textra. But I am kinda tired of the Material Design look.

    Call me crazy but I really like Google's Messenger application. I was using the stock app up until a few days ago but I started to find it clunky.

    Quick question about Google Messenger: Can you set it to display the sender's name without any message contents? That's what I hated about Samsung's app. It was either "New Message" or sender's name with content. I used Google Messenger before, but can't remember what it was that made me like Textra better.

    Does anyone know how to get the scrolling message preview at the top notification panel to turn on (with either verizon + or stock ) ? I have everything check marked in advanced settings like it should,but all i get is a new text message icon in the notification panel,no scrolling preview?

    I am also curious about the scrolling message preview in the notification panel. I checked all settings and everything seems fine, however I still don't get the preview. I always liked that feature instead of enabling a disruptive floating notification in Textra

    Several of these alternatives are missing the delay send option that the stock messaging app has. I don't use it ALL the time but it has come in very handy.

    I was a beta tester for Google Voice which has morphed into Google Hangouts. I use Hangouts for text messaging and voice calling.

    I like using the stock Samsung message app but really the options to change things are lousy
    I like stock or Google messenger. Lots of people here like textra and that app is good too. I used to really like evolve but haven't used it in a long time.

    I'd love to try If it launches. Not sure it will have SMS capability though. The forum here doesn't seem to think so

    I hadn't used Textra in years. I downloaded it the other day on recommendation from somewhere here, it's changed soooo much since the last time I used it. I like it, I'm keeping it! I just wished the pop-up message were a bit bigger.

    I'm using stock, I've used textra in the past but I don't like the individual messages in my notifications.

    Is there a way to use my Google voice phone number on any of the other messaging apps like textra? Or even the stock messaging app?

    I'm trying to keep my text limit down so I'm using "hangouts" and my Google voice phone number

    Help me get away from hangouts as my only option !
