Bad experience with Messeging
« On:December 14, 2015, 10:24:54 PM »
1. I am not happy with bubble size in messages. It is very narrow. Hardly uses 60% of width. It should be wide.
2. Messeges greater than 3 pages length are getting converted to multimedia messeges.  It got me cost Rs. 5 each twice. At least ask user if he wants to convert it to multimedia.
3. And about enhanced messeges : It's very confusing. I mean how to use this * feature? Not at all user friendly. Please answer if anyone has answers to thease : a. How to compose enhance message? b. How to add contacts in group chats?(Please look at the attachment.) I mean what do you mean by "no contacts" when I am having hundreds.


Preach me if I missed something.

Good questions....

a. How to compose enhance message?

Ans: AFAIK Enhanced messaging doesn't mean only texting. It is combination of three features i.e. Profile sharing, simple sharing and enhanced messaging. From screenshots, 3. Enhanced messaging is  instant and group chat.  Go to message settings -> enhanced messaging -> enhanced features. To know about simple sharing check the attachment.

b. How to add contacts in group chats?(Please look at the attachment.) I mean what do you mean by "no contacts" when I am having hundreds.
Ans: "No contacts" means none of your contacts are  using Enhanced Messaging feature. You can "group chat/share via contacts" only with those who are registered user of EM.

Agree with comments from Jahidul.

Enhanced Messaging feature is an instant Messaging service between Samsung users ( Android, Tizen).
User needs to activate the enhanced messaging feature and register with the service.

You can chat/group chat with the contacts who are already registered with the service.

so:
a. How to compose enhance message?
 
Since the feature is integrated with native messaging, to know if the message goes as EM.
if you open any already existing conversation or  create a new message, and if that contact is as well registered with the EM, you can see "Enter Chat message" in text box are. This means, the text will go as instant message.

b. How to add contacts in group chats?(Please look at the attachment.) I mean what do you mean by "no contacts" when I am having hundreds.

By using "start group chat" form option menu, you can see  list of contacts which are EM registered. you can select and start group chat.
So when you don't see anything on the list means none of your contacts is EM users.  You can ask your friends Z3/Galaxy users to enable enhanced messaging in their phones and test the feature. You are surely going to enjoy this feature.

Thanks for clarification, Jahidul and Javaid. But I still don't understand logic behind message more than 3 pages converting to mms.

Yes that is unusual for me too. I think text messages should always remain as text. Automatically converting to mms is not user friendly as it causes unwanted expenses. Hope devs will fix this issue ASAP.

SMS = Short Message Service...lets try to keep it "Short"  ;)

Jokes apart, this is legacy feature that is probably same in all Samsung devices(correct me if am wrong) and changing this may take time.

At least sms could be some 16 pages  (I'm picking this number from my old S3310i feature phone from Samsung! ) long and then maybe convert it to mms with user confirmation to keep it as sms or convert to mms. :)

Samsung should open up its messaging service to the outside world with Matrix: http://www.matrix.org/
With the Matrix protocol, all chat apps will finally be able to talk to each other :)
Samsung has an important role to play here !
