I have a Google Pixel 3XL. I have a My Choice Plan with data.
Previously, on occasion, I would send a text message in Google Messages which would appear as being properly sent on my screen, but its intended recipient would tell me they never got it. Now this problem has increased from an occasional annoyance to a daily headache. I never know whether anyone is receiving my SMS messages, and I’d say it is a 50/50 shot.
This has happened regardless of whether I am operating on cell service or on wifi. It has happened with everyone and anyone seemingly regardless of their service provider, although I cannot say which provider every one of my contacts has.
I checked to make sure I had chat features disabled, which I did. I searched the Internet looking to see if other people were complaining about this issue on Google Messages and came up empty-handed.
Additionally, and I do not know whether this could be related in any way, I have recently found that when I open Messages to compose a text, I begin typing and my words disappear. I have been forced to start text messages multiple times before I can get the words to “stick”. It’s insanely frustrating.
Any help or tips would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
