Where is the chat app in this?... Have been searching, but it doesn't appear to be part of my Samsung apps.

oops, sorry about that.

"chat app" is a generic term synonymous with "texting app" ... like Sammy Messages or Google Messages or Textra or ...


Spam protection is there for us ... we use Google Messages, as it has better features and is more reliable


Even Samsung has made Google Messages the default chat app with the S22 series phones

AND ... Samsung Moderators, in this forum, now recommend the use of Google Messages vs Sammy Messages
