Android Central Question

I tried installing textra so I can get unique notification sounds when receiving a text message from a unique contact. Textra unique notifications for contacts does not work and now when I go to messages on my home screen it shows a popup message asking to if I want to make samsung message app as my default. What is going on here?

When you installed Textra, it probably changed your default SMS app to Textra.

Most SMS apps will ask you to make them the default SMS app when you run them if they are not the default SMS app on the assumption that you ran the "new" app for a reason and never want to run the "old" app again.
