So I got my S9+ this morning (upgrading from an S8) and I noticed the option to change the background of messages is gone. Has this feature been removed or is it still available under another menu? It's a shame that I can't find it because I really liked that feature from the S8. 

 

Thanks in advance for any help given.

The best FREE APP is the Verizon Messages.  Go to Google Play to get it. No ads, customize your background, bubbles, recipients, everything.  Even add your custom pictures, background, etc.  THE BEST TEXT MESSAGES ON THE PLANET.

I totally agree about Verizon Messages.  However, I do not have Verizon any more, I went with Xfinity.  It was so dissappointing not to be able to use the Verizon App.  I tried but it kept freezing.  I think we non-Verizon folks will have to wait for the Samsung App to catch up.  Soon I hope.  I'm having issues with it as well, but at least it doesn't freeze.

Verizon Messages is a free app and it works on any Droid phone.

Not on mine Supertek. Truly I did NOT want to mess with my message app but I had no choice. I just assumed it had something to do with my changing providers.

Hi galaxytwoonward - No, I have seen no changes. Works nicely, just none of the little things to allow your own touches.

The Samsung 9 my thoughts are the Samsung 8 is better I've had 2 phones in the last week my 1st S9 the software crashed my 2nd S9. I too looked for change of  message background   its not an option . My themes says , it cant apply   due to content  error. My google  account  says my phone can not be reached  due to server errors. I HATE THIS THING called S9. . My sounds were all on and  i got No sound at all.   You could see the call coming in but no sound.not a good way to start off ..  Sincerely unsatisfied S9 owner
