Samsung Galaxy Apps on non Samsung phone - not supported?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I am being told by Samsung support that the Galaxy Watch messaging app only works if I have a Samsung phone. I have a OnePlus 3T running Android 8.0.0, and I'm not getting ANYTHING on my watch, not even notifications a message is waiting on my phone, let alone the actual text on my watch. I am using Textra for my messaging app, and have enabled notifications.

I have returned the Galaxy watch and I'm looking for a different watch. I've accepted that "compatibility with Android phones" is loosely defined and that if receiving text messages notifications is a primary requirement, then a Wear OS watch is propbaably a better solution.

We do apologize. Textra is not compatible with the Tizen OS on your watch.

I've swapped in Android Messages, enabled notification in the Galaxy Wear phone app for Messages. Watch still does acknowledge receipt of new message.
