Where is messaging app - moto g4

where is the messaging app on the moto g4.

It was easy to find on my old moto e, but I can’t locate it on the g4


Hi @seand.tgdcnc,

The AOSP Messaging app available on previous Android phones is no longer available on the newer Moto series phones including the G4. It’s been replaced by Android Messages. The icon looks like this:

Motorola drop the Messaging app (which is being phased out)

Republic 3.0 does not support the old Messaging app any-why

Both Motorola and Republic now have the default texting app be Android Messages (formally Google Messenger)
