How to make Hangouts my default sms app?


AC Question

I have an LG G5 and I can't figure out how to make hangouts my default sms app! It does not have the option under settings, someone please help me!

I don't think Hangouts is considered a SMS app. On my phone, I go to Settings > Apps > (gear in upper right) > Default Messaging App, and it isn't one of the options. You might also be able to search for "Default" to see this area.
