Has there been any progress toward getting the samsung messages to work as default app on samsung phones? I ask because I bought the new gear s3 smartwatch and the Samsung app works much better with smartwatch. Thanks
None that I’ve heard of. The latest we know is this: Compatibility with the Samsung Messages App. I don’t know that other messaging apps besides Republic’s supported Google Messenger will work with your Gear S3 any better, however, I’m using Textra. I’ve also seen reports in Community that Chomp, Evolve and Handcent work as well.
