So my message app is not showing on my gear s3. I can go to a contact and then select messaging or I can reply to a message but if I want to a iniate a text I can only do so by finding the contact first.

 

The little yellow message icon that should be located next to my phone icon is nowhere to be found.

 

I have a moto droid turbo 2 if that makes any difference. I'm using messaging by softcoil development.

 

Can anyone help here?

By chance is everyone on this thread using a Moto Droid Turbo 2? If not, please let me know which specific device you're using. Also if you're using the default SMS messaging app that exists on your device, or a third party overlay/messaging application.

 

I'd greatly appreciate that information. Thank you for your patience!

So it does look like depending on the android device you have as well, there could be some limited availability. I have a friend who's using a LG model and has no problem with using the default messaging app for sending and receiving texts. However, he can not respond to e-mails, only receive notifications for them on his Gear S3.

 

Looking at the Product Page for the S3, it does show it as "Limited Availability" so I'm not too sure right now which devices have what, and which ones can do either or. If you want to perhaps help me out as well, you can start naming off your Android Device, and whether or not you don't have stock Messaging, E-mail, or Both. I can't speak to whether or not those features will become available in the future for other android devices, but maybe we can get a nice comprehensive list going for other folks looking into this.

I have a Galaxy S5 and a Gear S3. The message of whatsapp does not appear on the watch? Sometimes appears, but usually not?
