    On previous Galaxy phones, you can change the colour and style of the text bubbles.

    I have a Galaxy S8 and I can't find where to change them anywhere.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    It looks like you can only do it by changing the entire theme of the phone

    Textra allows this. It's third party, but I like it. You can even change the emoji style that displays in the app.

    If using the VZW messenger, you change it in the app. (It's something VZW actually does right)

    Samsung Messenger doesn't have the capability, but your carrier's messenger may have it.. I have VZW messenger which is able to change the color and style of the text bubble. However, I don't really like the look of VZW so I stick with Samsung Messenger (my preference).. Also there are numerous 3rd party apps to support your desires.

    You can do it with your S8 model by going to you apps, choosing the messages app icon, and it will ask you if you would like to use message+ or messages as your default sms app, choose messages and it will change to the theme you downloaded. You can always change back to message+ by going to settings, clicking on the app and setting it back to default
