attachments to text messages

JUMP TO SOLUTION

My S8 updated today and when I go to send a text message the icon for attachments is no where to be found. How do I attach a picture etc. to a text message now?  When I asked this via Samsung website chat I got sent to youtube to clear my cache - which I did to no avail.

Select the "+" symbol for options while you are in a text message.

Hello,

Your memory may be full. Try deleting or backing up and deleting pictures and videos

What are you seeing at the input box when you type a message? Is there a "+" to the left?

Yes - and clicking on that worked per someone else's suggestion. So helpful but not obvious!

Are you seeing these options? Or are you able to share an image or attachment directly from gallery to text messaging application?

I too cannot seem to find any link to choose a document to attach to a message. Selecting the + does not have an option to select anything from the my files folder

Me too. Have a Samsung S10+ and can't find a way to attach a pdf to a text message. Clicking on the + does not seem to provide any option to do so.

PDF files are incompatible with either SMS or MMS messaging due to Adobe formatting restrictions. There are third party apps that use alternate data channels to accomplish this, but sending a PDF is easiest using email.
