Is anyone else having this issue? The temporary fix was to disable Meets or disable Samsung Messages and install Google Messages. I just Spoke with Tech Support and they stated it's been fixed and you should be able to reinstall Meets without having any issues with Samsung Text Messages. Well it's not fixed and now they want me to take my phone to the Asurion store to have my phone looked at by a technician.

Have you updated your Samsung messages to version 15.2.01.4? You can update from the Galaxy Store or from APK file.

No I haven't done an update to that version. I don't have any files listed in the APK file. I don't have Galaxy store, do have Playstore and I would have to install Messages. If I do that will it replace my current Messages or will I have 2 different Messages installed?

Downloading Google messages will not replace your current messaging app.  You can have both on your phone concurrently--One has to be the default, and you can switch back and forth if you want to use one over the other (all your messages will appear in both).  Each time you open the app that is not your default, it's going to ask you to make it the default.  Your default messaging app is the one you decide to use. You may decide you like Google Messages and stick with it, and you may have no choice in the matter as other messaging apps are phasing out because they don't support RCS.  They may in the future, but not now.

No. When I go to Galaxy it's a different Samsung Messages to install and not update. And nothing gives me the option to update in the APK file for Samsung Messages.
