    Dark mode is the main reason I made the move to Textra. It's also the reason I use Type mail instead of Gmail even after Gmail added combined inbox. I can't wait until I can make the settings on my phone dark. That'll be nice.

    My work phone received 3.5.053. the more I look at it compared to my personal phone, the material design type of change is growing on me...a little. Still no update on my Z2. Here is an example of Messages dark Mode on my Turbo 2. A test chat back & forth between my two different phones (testing U Connect hands free the other day).[​IMG]

    It finally showed up on my phone. As far as appearance goes, I like it as much as Textra but Textra still had way more customization like font size. I may try it for a bit and see if I like it.

    Pulse > Textra
    And the free version is not crippled or ad supported. Just saying.

    I bought Textra years ago. Before Pulse ever had a pulse. :D

    Messages with dark mode is nice and I like it but nothing about it makes me want to switch from Textra to it. There's no advantage to it. They're about the same size, both are quick. If I wasn't using the paid version and still dealing with ads I might switch but that's a non issue. As long as Textra is receiving updates and still being supported I'll probably be using it.

    Just noticed since the update that the messages widget is gone.

    Tap'd from my Pixel 2 XL

    Widgets for text messages? Insanity.

    I actually added a Messages widget to my phone this morning just to see what it looks like. I can see why some would like it. It's not my cup of tea, but to each their own. It's nice to have options and choices

    I really don't use widgets so Textra not having a widget isn't an issue for me. I have a clock widget and when I tap on that it turns my flashlight on and I use the built in weather widget. That's it for me.
