    Weird I dont see an option in settings to do so now. But if you download a Theme that can be the background.

    If you are using the Samsung messaging app, the option isn't available anymore. At least on my Verizon note9. Maybe try a different messaging app. Someone else would have to advice you on a messaging app that does that since I only use Samsung messaging app and I let my themes change background.

    Ita been removed from what I can tell. I'm sure you can use custom
    Backgrounds in other message apps but themes will work now.

    Yeah. The last time I had that option I never really used it. Just themes

    That option was taken away on the stock messaging app. Best you can do now is change the theme through the Samsung theme app. I like a black background so I use the High Contrast Sky Black theme. Lots of options with different themes.

    Well also, doesn't changing the theme change everything else, too? Like fonts, wallpaper, icons and such? I really wish we could change the background independently for messages. I had found a theme I liked for the icons so decided to try it out. I manually changed the font and wallpaper, but I was stuck with their intrusive background in messages. So then I went with a more basic theme and had to settle on a separate icon pack that I don't like as much. And of course all the changes you make can't be saved to be recreated to test and try.

    It's weird because when I choose a Samsung theme, the icons never load anyway. Just the background for the various screens. I have an unlocked note 9 but I dont think I've ever had it where the icons update with the background am today I even went into my Nova settings and it didnt show the leather icon theme as an option to change my icons to. Oh well. Can do those separately easy on play store.

    I was having the same issue. Another poster told me when I go to Nova settings to change the icons pack, click the option that says system and your icons will change to the ones from whatever theme you are using at the time.
