I see some posts were split off cause was something about testing to and from Google Voice…i am not texting to GV, but I have tried it and that does seem to not be working.
For more insight.
Her her phone was on home wifi, mine on LTE.
She didn’t get the message i sent her to come down i have the car pulled up to our building entrance until after were were just parked at the store.
While in the store, both on LTE, i sent her a text telling here where i was, she got it and responded, i responded back, she did not get that message until we got home, and was on wifi for 10 min.
I then, 45 min after being home, got a text from her that said she was ready to go and was coming down to the car.
We both have Google Messages and do have chat features enabled, have for several months. Never had any issues, even after the whole pandemic started and we were texting like craze as see was out of town until recently.
I feel LTE may be the factor mostly. As i have sent several text messages back and forth while on our home wifi and they work instantly, but put one phone or both on LTE and it is a mixed experience of some delay to no delay.
I have tried to disable the chat features on both phones, to test, but it wont disable. it just does it turning off chat thing…but never completes. when u go back into the app, it is still enabled. Even clearing app data, the feature remains enabled.
