I am using a Pixel 3 phone and my default messaging app is Android Messages. I am unable to send or receive MMS messages through a WiFi connection, only through a mobile data connection. Any thoughts on how I can fix this?
Hi Ddupont! Make sure that you've got "Send Messages over WiFi" enabled in the settings on Android Messages.
Messages> Menu> Settings> Advanced> Chat Features> Enable Chat Features switched to On.
Let me know if you're still having issues!
Yes, I do have this feature enabled, see the screenshot below of my current settings:
I know it's not a slow WiFi upload speed either (see screenshot below). I uploaded the first screenshot to my Google Drive account without any issue. When I tried to MMS it to myself, it hung in the sending state until I connected to mobile data.
Thanks for the screenshot and additional info. How long have you been having issues with this?
Thanks. And no issues when connected to the cellular network, right?
Ok. Your WiFi network speeds don't appear to be the issue, but let me do some digging on this. Are you connected to a 2.4 or 5ghz band?
Ok, I've looked deeper into this, and the MMS Token might not be in place. Try this.
Take the phone off WiFi
Yes for reset and let it run it's course
Once finished, send out a MMS.
Then connect to WiFi and send one out..
I turned off WiFi and left my mobile on and then dialed and called ##72786## (with a relatively decent cell signal) and got an automated voice saying "The number or code you dialed is incorrect" -- am I doing something wrong here, or this a defining symptom?
