Google\Android Messages is the same version 2.2.076 4091682-40.phone on my phone and my wife's phone.

 

I definitely can't figure out why she would have it and I wouldn't. 

 

Does anyone else have a S8plus with the same version of Android Messages as I do? Does the enhanced messaging options show for you or does the circle on the screen just turn forever. 

 

The message I get is Excuse the wait...... Messages will let you know when this step is complete. All you can do is hit back or Got It!.... The enhanced options never appear for me. Factory resets, profile updates, re-register the phone on the network, cleared cache, uninstall and reinstall, new sim card.

 

If you download the Android Messages app, you will not lose any of your text messages so why not try it and report here now that we have Sprint looking at it finally...

No they came with an app called Messages - Samsung's version which you would think would be a different name since Google just changed their name to Messages also.

 

Is this really solved??

 

It seems we are just waiting for Sprint and Samsung to fix it on some of our S8s since it works on other Sprint S8s.

Anyone else test this?

Do you have a S8 or S8 plus?

Enhanced messaging is not working on my s8 I can't see when another user with enhanced messaging is typing or when they have read my texts. So I guess it still isn't working?

Sorry @JPhrost, no updates to provide.  They know I'm waiting for it, as I'm currently using the S8 myself.  I'll definitely pop back in here when I hear something.

I do not see the read confirmation option in the settings. Also with enhanced messaging I was able to send large files, such as videos. The s8+ is telling me that i have to trim my videos.

Ok receiving daily texts from 9179:

 

Messenger's enhanced features have been enabled (Confirmation ID: 100132)

 

However, there is no option to enable on my messenger app.

 

S8+ with 4.2.02.1 Messages and 4.1.17 Message services.

 

This it's really annoying as they come at all hours of the night! 

 

Thanks, Adam
