Messenger Recently Placing Images and Attachments into Group Conversation

Moto g7 Play

Data, Talk and Text Included

Greetings everyone,

Recently, my phone’s messenger (Android) has been placing attachments and links sent to me into a separate group conversation. Regular text messages go through with no problems, so I’m not sure why it has started doing this. Moreover, unless there was an update to the software I’m unaware of, none of the messenger settings have been changed on my end.

If anyone has experienced this themselves or has faced a similar issue that would know of any solution(s) to this, I would be most grateful for your feedback and assistance.

Best Regards,

Hello @freddyp!

Thank you for your help and advice on the matter! Unfortunately, despite trying everything you suggested, and going through the Troubleshooting Texting Issues section, I’m still having the same issue. Additionally, I’ve yet to find any other help pages or tech sites that not only have anyone experiencing this issue, but also have any known solutions.

Again, I am grateful for any help you or others can still provide in resolving my messaging issues.

Best Regards,


Hello all!

I just wanted to provide an update. Due to perhaps some automatic update or fix in the Messenger App that I’m unaware of transpiring, the problem seems to have bee resolved.

I thank everyone again for taking the time to look over my situation.

Best Regards,
