Re: Day of week highlights in Text Message

Same here and for some reason it bugs me! Can we disable it? Anyone?

Has anyone noticed on their new update for the S10 that when you type in day of week in text such as "today", 'tomorrow' it automatically highlights and when you click on it, it opens up calendar.  Any way on how to disable that feature in settings?  I have looked and no luck. At the bottom, I attached an example.20191107_065853.jpg

Re: Day of week highlights in Text Message

Thank you for reaching out. This is a "feature" that seems to have been added in the most recent update. It is occurring across several Android devices, Regretfully, There does not seem to be an option to disable it.

Re: Day of week highlights in Text Message

 

How unprofessional and embarrassing for Samsung to allow this nonsense to to continue.

 

My SOLUTION...

 

1. Install these apps:

SMS Organizer(Early Access)
&
SwiftKey Keyboard
Both apps Developed by Microsoft Corp.

 

2. Delete or disable stock messaging and stock keyboard apps.

 

I have an S9+ and have inadvertently avoided this problem because I didn't like the Samsung stock setup to begin with. Hopefully this will help somebody. 

 

(optional and highly recommended)
Install Microsoft Launcher

In my opinion this setup is superior. Even before the issues.

Re: Can't disable auto hyperlinks to calendar in text messages

Also being plagued by this "feature"

It really does need a disable option,  and it should not interrupt proper hyperlinks. 

 

Just a weird update to have been pushed out...

YES! This "feature" is annoying and useless! Its unnecessary when you mention a keyword in a text and extremely problematic when it breaks hyperlinks that include one of the keywords.

 

Samsung and @SamsungRei please provide a way to disable this feature! It should not be automatically enabled! NO ONE CARES how this feedback is tagged in the forum, we just want a SOLUTION to this problem!!

Re: Can't disable auto hyperlinks to calendar in text messages

It hit my Note8 as well..... completely useless. I have a Note9 NIB from last year's launch I was going to start using and retiring the Note8 due to battery issues. Guess I won't need a Note10 5G or any Samsung phones until they fix this.

I hate it too!  It makes my messages feel cluttered and harder to read.  It needs to be a feature that can be disabled.  My S10 note and my kids S9's are all doing it now and none of us like it.

Re: Can't disable auto hyperlinks to calendar in text messages

Solution:  Download Google's "Messages" app from the Playstore.  Open and choose this as your default app for SMS Messages.  Then, remove Samsung's Messages icon from your home screen and replace with the Google Messages Icon.  Samsung blew it on this "forced feature" that no one likes.  It's also annoying that Samsung also named it Messages, which seems to be a deliberate deception.  

 

I just switched and my only regret is not switching *sooner*

 

P.S.  While this doesn't address Samsung's own Messages app, it is a solution to the hyperlink issue.  Don't count on Samsung to to rollback that "feature" anytime soon.

Re: Can't disable auto hyperlinks to calendar in text messages

Another user here checking in. Recently upgraded to a Galaxy S10e from an S7 and severely dislike these links in messages.  I have also installed the Google messages app and made it the default. No problems so far!  No unwanted links every 3 words, and so yes, it is indeed possible to send a message cleanly and without frustration, horray!  I rate the Google messages app 5 out 5 fuzzies. 

 

I actually have no problem using their apps since Google writes Android. I don't trust them 100%, no, but it's seemless so far.
