    Every time i try to send one of these fancy new live messages via text, i get a failed text notification. I'm using textra as my messaging app. Is anyone else having issues sending live messages thru as texts? Thanks!

    I had to change my MMS behavior to "Legacy" under MMS settings. Then I could send them.

    I don't use stock keyboard, and I access the live message through air command. You can put a live message shortcut there.

    Where do you find that option? In the messaging app itself?

    Yeah, it's in the textra settings inside the app. Goto settings, then click MMS.

    I'm not using Textra... I'm just using the messaging app that came with the phone, and I'm having the same issue. I have been through the message settings several times and can't find any type of setting that limits the message size. Help!

    I finally just gave up and switched to Textra... and the problem was solved! I also really like Textra. Hopefully it won't have any problems with compatibility with other Note 8 functions or Android Wear for my smart watch.

    Live Message works for me on the stock Samsung App. I don't think it's supported on other messaging apps. At least I haven't gotten it to work.

    Edit: Just as I said this, I got Textra to work with Live Message. LOL. User error. So both work for me.

    just above where it says "MMS Behavior...Legacy" is a line that says "carrier send limit... 600". modify that to whatever you want. mine is set to 1000kb. yours is set to 600. not sure that's the issue, but worth a try, no?

    Whoops.


    OK thanks for helping me. I I fixed it by

    Disabled WiFi calling because despite having set to Prefer Cellular the Note 8 is enabling WiFi Calling anyway.

    well, I'm having issues now. wifi calling is disabled and it still won't go out using legacy setting in Textra. any other ideas?

    I am using Textra too, I have tried using Legacy settings and even set my limit to 2000 and even none and can not get a Live message to send. I am able to send gifs normally and they go fine but it seems to only affect the new live messages. I am using the Samsung Unlocked version on AT&T

    I can't get to the gifs because the options don't show for me. no images, etc., only emojis, so I setup gboard to see if I can with it and haven't tested yet. detest the Sammy keyboard. always have and that's not going to change. (custom launcher)

    I'm on sprint and not unlocked
