Option to attach photo to text message has disappeared

There used to be an icon (+) to attach photos to a text message. This is no longer a feature in messages. Although I can get around it by going to the photo and sharing it via text, but that's not very efficient.

Was this option removed with the last update or am I missing something?

Hi CLF,

Thanks for the response. Correct, I used to have exactly what your screenshots show. But these icons have disappeared. I've attached a screenshot so you can see that there is no longer an option for attachments.

Also, to clarify - this is whether I start to type first or not.

Hey, 

@mamakittyhawk

That's a little strange. You had them and they just disappeared. Have you tried the usual trouble shooting steps, Clear the messages app cache files, backup all your messages to Samsung cloud and clear the messages app data, Wipe the system cache partition ect.

Version 10 1 40 77 is the version I'm running. Is yours the same version?

Hey, 

If you've installed any third party apps recently or a theme that you suspect might be interfering with the messages app boot into safe mode for a minute and check if the icons are showing again.

Hey, s8 on pie here, don't see the issue, seems that your version of Samsung messages was corrupted or something. Try disabling messages (which reverts it to the default version), deleting its cache, then enabling messages, updating it to the latest version of the app
