Verizon Messages APK Version History
November 3, 2017
This app is awesome, I use it on my phone and ipad. I never miss a message. It's the best messaging app I've ever used!!! When I got a new phone the app gives you the option to retrieve messages 90 days back. I can't tell you how many times I've had to go to my old phone if it was still intact to get old messages. Attach pictures, draw on them. Love,love, love it! Not sure about what others are talking about missing messages, sounds like network not messaging issues. Full Review

9/28/17: Back to its former greatness after a period of weirdness on one of my phones. Happy to give it 5 stars now. 2/9/17: What happened!? Unable to write or send msg on S7. Please fix! Now! Older: I like this app. However, it is missing the ability to speak messages. Aside from that, it is very easy to use and seems reliable. I'm in my second week of use and I expect it to get better from here! Full Review
October 5, 2017
Overall I'm very pleased with this app. However, recently it has reset itself twice to basic font and size etcetera. I also don't like that I'm no longer able to modify my signature per text without going into the settings; something I don't have time or energy for. On my last phone I was able to change the signature within the text body. Now it just just adds it at the end when you send it. Full Review

If you're wanting to tell a person off or wanna get a flirtatious message across to someone, this would be that app. Plus, you get to set up customs for each person you text so you can tell them apart, without sending the wrong text to the wrong person. ......been there before, haven't we all. I love how we're able to send voice texts and video through this Messaging App as well. Haven't used it yet, but I'm vouching it's a great tool. Full Review
September 19, 2017
I love this app. However, I use the Swype typing and if it fills in the wrong word (ex: 'time' for 'tomo') it will offer other words to choose, but sometimes when I choose the correct word it doesn't erase my old word, only the last letter ('timtomo'). This is super annoying to deal with, but other than that I love using it and have recommended it to others who also love it. Maybe you can fix this glitch? Full Review

I openened a Digit account to save money into a rainy day fund. So far I've saved over 16 dollars. I am not upset either that this costs 2.99 per month or 35 or so for a year. You will be able to save with this app. I like it that I can have access to my Rainy Day funds when I need the money. Overall great concept and it will only get better. Keep up the good work developers
September 1, 2017
I have to edit my previous rating of this app. Th ey were able to get the bugs worked out after the app update and it is back running smoothly. I have used this app for years and love it! I love the customization and the east user interface. I don't use it for anything other than texting so I can't speak about voice calls or video calling. The it thing I use it for other than that is to text internationally to Canada and it always works well for that. Full Review
November 25, 2017
I use to love this app until the most recent updates. Sending text is no problem but trying to get a pic sent is like trying to get blood from a turnip. I have the S8 and up until a month ago I had no problem. When a pic is sent, it says sending up to 2 full minutes and getting a pic the same. Under wifi and non wifi conditions the result is the same. I have sent numerous bug reports but it seems they are going ignored. It doesn't take forever to get an update to fix these issues Full Review
August 7, 2017
Easy to use, some cool features ( like put fonts over top of an image.) I really like this messaging app. But now that I have used it a bit, if I try to send more than three photos to one person, it tells me I don't have enough room to send a photo. So I have to delete messages to be able to send them more. Don't know why. No one can tell me. If I can't find a viable fix guess I'll go back to standard android messaging not as nice but no restrictions on how many photos I send someone. Full Review
August 16, 2017
Since we purchased Pixel phones everytime I turn phone on message+ restarts like I never installed I had always used this app many yrs no prob BUT since this new phone app restarts. I have called V they say our phones are so advanced to updates faster than V can update this app.. PLS FIX ..UPDATE Full Review
September 28, 2017
Easy to customize and create a cool canvas for messaging. However! No Gif support is a big-time letdown. A Google search shows Verizon supports them, but with Google keyboard, I get nothing. Bummer, considering the other great aspects of the app. Hopefully we note8 owners will see an update soon. Full Review
October 11, 2017
I think this app could do a few things to improve quality. It could use a different media search engine than Yahoo, which is lacking compared to giphy or imgur. It could also add the ability to share external content through group messaging without a copy and paste link (so if you hit the share button on an external source, allow users to share in a group message instead of only selecting individual contacts). I believe that this app could be improved by copying slack, group me, or the Apple texting app. Tl;dr there are better messaging apps to use for now Full Review
November 2, 2017
Solid app. It's not as "clean" nor simple as Android Messages (formerly Google Messenger) but very good and with great customization. The abilities to sync multiple devices and also send messages via Wi-Fi are huge pluses. "Minimalistic design" and "clean interface" are common points of praise amongst the highest rated SMS apps. This app, great as it is, has neither. It's way too cluttered. Even sending a picture or video file takes way too many steps, particularly compared with Android Messages. Simplifying the design is a must for this app's developers. If it had archiving (hiding certain message threads until needed), it'd be nearly perfect. It's still a great app, however. Full Review
August 18, 2017
Used to love it. Now it goes through a long startup process and multi page dialog every time the phone is restarted. Been doing that through last four updates. Uninstalled and reinstalled - no help. Last thing you want when you're trying to send a message is 3 minutes of start-up. Uninstalling for good now. Full Review
August 16, 2017
Tysvm for your reply, Verizon. This means so much to me.
September 20, 2017
So far only 2 things I really dislike. I can no longer send more than one pic to someone (unless I use collage) and I HAVE to hold the record button to make a video instead of just tapping it. I haven't had the time to just sit and search for a different way to do something so simple, but if this is possible tell me how please. Full Review
November 13, 2017
I use this app CONSTANTLY! To text, send pics, forward stuff off the internet, u-tubes, you name it. I think it's wonderful! Only one drawback that I've found is that it gets a little behind the keyboard when texts are long. The longer the text, the more behind it gets. Probably should give it 4 stars, but I love it otherwise Full Review
October 19, 2017
What happened to schedule messages? Did you get rid of it? Used to be you could long press the send arrow and it would pop up asking when you'd like to schedule... Now I don't see it... Please respond!! Or fix it... Had to give less stars this time rating because of this... Will give more stars if you get it up and running again! Full Review
September 30, 2017
I've used this app for a very long time. Love the versatility of it, but since getting my Samsung note 8, the settings do not work the way I have them selected. I can't get my selected ring tone to work for notifications. Had to click and unclick followed by restarting my phone to get it to stop showing when I was typing. My daughter's Samsung S7 did the same thing. I believe the app needs a few tweaks. Full Review
October 18, 2017
I think the app is good. I used to have Verizon and now I have T-Mobile. I have 2 probs with this app: 1 - it freezes very often. 2 - There used to be a feature that allows us to schedule messages. It is now gone. It was gone before I left Verizon so I am not sure as to what happened to this feature. It was very useful. I am using the app on the Samsung 8 plus. If these 2 probs can be fixed this would be an excellent app! I really enjoy the drive detection function. Full Review
November 10, 2017
Update to 4 stars: App does not reset itself anymore as if I never used it and works smoothly! One thing I noticed though is that I can't find auto-reply anywhere or scheduled messages. Did you guys get rid of that, or move it somewhere different? Full Review
November 10, 2017
Great app from a functional standpoint. The biggest thing that needs to be addressed is the swipe right to dial or swipe left to delete thread. It is way too sensitive within the app and cannot be disabled. I accidentally call someone at least once a week and have accidentally deleted threads too. This has been an issue raised by many people for over a year now and it blows my mind the developers haven't listened and provided a way to turn this on or off in the application settings. This really should be a long press feature. Besides all this, the interface could use some refreshing to make it more modern. Full Review
October 6, 2017
10-06-2017: App keeps crashing. Note8 tracks them. A simple one word text is taking over 2 minutes to send. 50k pic takes 5 minutes. No other app on Note 8 is affected. 06-22-2017: Can't use classic EMOJIS. The pasty large flat ones are HORRIBLE. Turning it off/on in settings has no effect. Full Review
November 18, 2017
I really like this app, in spite of these flaws. It's ugly to look at, full of useless bloat, and the picture viewing interface is horrible, but those are the only negatives. It sends sms and mms over WiFi (you can send over Wi-Fi with Google messages after enabling this app, even after you disable this app). It also allows you to customize the color scheme to black background which saves power on amoled devices. Full Review
November 4, 2017
App is OK. I've found texts get randomly deleted; older texts have stayed but newer ones are gone. Also photos have disappeared. Text stays but photos get deleted some how. Continues to delete messages. I lost 3 today alone (11/3). This is a Verizon app and I have Verizon. It's an app issue not a network issue. Unfortunately I don't believe Verizon looks at these comments. Full Review
November 2, 2017
I really like this app but recently some kind of bug attacked it. Pictures sent via this app just disappear. Now I save them immediately which I never had to do before. This has happened to others also not just me. Called Tech Support Twice with no resolution. Reps were concerned but did not have any info from Verizon about this issue. Full Review
November 18, 2017
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Code in the ability for the swipe to call feature to be disabled by the user. I am so tired of accidentally calling people because it is so sensitive. Numerous people have asked for this feature as I have checked for a solution and have read the support forums. Disabling it contacts does not work in Messenger+ Full Review
August 27, 2017
I've tried a lot of messaging apps and this one is one of the best. It has more features than almost all the rest and makes creating mms messages really simple and easy. This is something that other apps haven't figured out how to do. Edit: unfortunately it doesn't work with the Nexus 6 so if you have that phone, the integrated messaging feature and group chats don't work. Full Review
September 10, 2017
Have loved it for years, but just hit a deal breaker, sadly. I use Gboard for the keyboard, which just got a really good update which allows adding Bitmoji straight from the keyboard. But when I try using this app, I get an error saying this app doesn't allow that from the keyboard. Had to switch to a different messaging app. Will happily go back to this so when Verizon fixes that. Full Review
October 27, 2017
This is one of the best texting apps I've used if not the best. Better than the paid apps I've tried. The emojis are very compatible with the iPhone ones. ***One feature that would make this app perfect would be delayed sending. To stop from sending in case u catch a mistake right after clicking send. Full Review
November 4, 2017
I have an old imoji set. The emojis as they appear in the set appear different when inputted. So what you see is not what you get, and totally different. This only happens with this app. All other apps, the same Emojis are available for me too choose actually show up as displayed. Don't know what's wrong with message+ Full Review
October 13, 2017
Once again... It's glitchy. Freezing up and crashing more and more every day. Funny that 2 years ago I posted the same thing. Loved it for the longest time... Then it got glitchy. You've been pushing updates pretty steady for the last month, but it still randomly freezes, goes black, galaxy s7 on Verizon Full Review
September 15, 2017
When I first got my pixel XL, this worked AMAZINGLY. But now with Oreo, it crashes all the time and now I don't seem to be getting messages on time anymore! I'm missing messages and then they all come in at once. What happened? How can I get rid of Oreo so I can go back to the better version Full Review
August 16, 2017
I've tried several of the top apps but keep coming back to this. One nice feature is ACS, that shows when text is read or the contact is writing a text. Both need this app I believe. Wish emojis selected are sent that way but often get converted to something weird. Full Review
August 23, 2017
So...I've been using this for a few years, love it, however now when I send pics to friends or they send pics to me, I can look at them once then if I go back to their messages the pictures are gone, why? Never did it in the past....I've deleted and reinstalled and it's still happening.... Full Review
August 29, 2017
For the most part I really like this app, but all of a sudden my punctuation is not coming up when I use speech to text. I use speech to text quite often due to tremors. For instance if I say period it types the word period out instead of putting a period at the end of a sentence. It would also be nice if I could edit my predictive typing. Full Review
October 21, 2017
I love this app but I'm giving only 3 stars becasue of the issue that has arrived in last update. When I'm on the app and scrolling through messages it always assumes I'm swiping to call that person and there is no way to turn off the swipe message to call option. Please help! Add a option to turn this feature off! Full Review
November 20, 2017
Will not show how many missed messages I have on the pixel 2. Tech coach tried literally everything for 45 min today. Not ok if texting is a big thing for work. Worked great w my Android turbo 2. I've had this phone 1 day . I'm taking it back. Full Review
November 21, 2017
Message prediction is poor. Punctuation messed up predictions. For example, I type, "I love you, baby" most days. It predicts well until I type ",". Then it drops "baby" and predicts other incorrect words. It also changed UPPER CASE to lower case at random times. Changes words too often. So, prediction is mediocre and auto-correct is bad. Full Review
November 10, 2017
I don't know why but it keeps saying my memory is full when I only have one person that I have text with out sending video or pictures. I have forestopped the app and reopened it and cleared all memory still doing it. I hope Verizon fixes this real soon its very frustrating! Other than that the app is fun to use! Full Review
