Blue dot beside numbers or name in text only

JUMP TO SOLUTION

When I look at my text messages my husband name appears and beside it is the initial of his first name. Then to the left of his initial is a blue dot. Yesterday I got a text from a wrong number and the same blue dot showed up beside that number. Which this number wasn't in my contacts, it was only a number.

I've read that if you have a android phone that other people that have android phones will show up with a blue dot beside there name. My husband does have a android and so do I. In his text my number and initial doesn't have any blue dots next to any name or number.

This may be an indication of other Samsung users showing that your ability to use features like a live message between two contacts who have a Samsung Device.

Do you see any blue dots on a contact profile that isn't a Samsung device?

View the blue dotted Contact entry on your Contact list and you will see a green video camera icon with transmission lines on it. Select that icon and you will "video call" that Contact. Very similar to Facetiming in the Apple World

The way I understand it if your phones have the same company you have the blue dot such as Samsung.  You can chat amongst each other and recieve info faster?

Are you using the stock messaging app that came pre-downloaded on your device?
