Lets go Samsung! You need to step up the messaging app ASAP. We need to be able to react to messaging and name group chats. It should not take this long to get these simple features that almost every other phone has! Let's step our game up!
Both parties have to be using the same messages app. That's true. Either both can use Samsung's or Google's. Both have their good or bad qualities. You happen to use Samsung's messages app with your Samsung friends? Samsung has a good app but most of my friends don't own Samsung phones. So it's not a good idea to make all my friends switch to Samsung. Google's messages work with all phones. Google to Google and Samsung's to Samsung's. I'm using Google now on a Samsung phone. Does Samsung messages work with other brands?
