Most Android phones use Android Messages by default when rolled out. It’s not bad– we’re definitely not saying so. But users of a specific line of Android phones are much more privileged with a more sophisticated messaging system.

When you buy a Samsung phone, it automatically activates text messaging through Samsung’s own system. Let’s go ahead and unravel some of the unique features in Samsung Messages and how you can use them:

  • Schedule Messages

The first feature we’re going to talk about is how you’re able to schedule messages so easily on a Samsung phone. Sometimes you find yourself in dire need to deliver a text message on a specific time. Whether it be work related, or simply you’re too anxious to forget to say happy birthday to your old man. Either way, Samsung is got your back!

To schedule a text message on a Samsung phone, simply do as follows:

  1. Type your message in Samsung Messages and have everything ready.
  2. Click on the plus button on the left bottom of the screen.
  3. Click on options, and then select ‘schedule message.’
  4. Simply enter the desired time and date and press done.
  5. Send it! (It won’t be sent until the schedule is met)

And that’s how simple it is to organize your text messages and send them beforehand for the app to handle your schedule.

  • Tag & Star Messages for a Follow-up

Not every text message you receive on your phone is important. Come on, be honest with us. We deal with phones and phone users, and we’re in this together! Jokes aside, it gets really distracting when you receive a ton of messages, with only a quarter of those that you really care about.

That’s why Samsung Messages offers you the ability to star and highlight the most important bits in your conversations. Let’s say your boss likes to appear friendly, and always tells you about family vacations. You don’t mind it, but it disturbs the professional flow of your text messaging. You don’t have to worry anymore.

If you’d like to highlight a certain text message, just press and hold on your desired bubble of text until a popup menu is visible. You can then choose “star message” to make it more visible. Not only that, but you can access your starred messages separately without having to go through any conversations. Just go to Samsung Messages and then click on the three dots on the upper right to go to options. You can then choose starred messages to view all of your important texts.

Add Custom Quick Responses

Quick responses can save you a lot of time if you text message a lot. Basically, you get to input certain replies to be saved and used later on. Like: ‘I’m in a meeting’ or ‘I’ll be busy for sometime, please email me [email protected]‘, that sort of thing.

To enable that through your Samsung phone, just go to Samsung Messages and click on the three-dotted line to access options. You may then choose quick responses to type your desired message and click on add.

To use your previously saved custom quick responses, just go to a conversation and click on the plus icon on bottom left.

  • Mute conversations

Just like using Facebook’s Messenger, you can mute conversations instead of turning your phone to silent. Sometimes, you get annoyed by the amount of messages a certain contact sends you. There’s a really quick fix to it: just press on the conversation you want to mute and hold it, you’ll then see a bell sign on the top of your screen. Press on it to mute the conversation, and you won’t have to suffocate your phone with a pillow.

  • Change Background and Color or Increase Font Size

Customization goes further with Samsung Messages, as you also get to modify your font size, and choose whatever color you like. You can also change the background of your messaging app and turn it into something personal.

Samsung does wonders when it comes to catering for the needs of their users. It’s always better to have more options on your messaging app. Some people even forsake What’s App and Messenger and use their default messaging system. Well, that would be wise if you have Samsung Messages.
