Moto Voice/Display 3rd SMS Integration

2015-04-02, 15:40 PM

Let's face it the stock SMS app is weak as toilet paper, but the integration with Moto Display is second to none. Does anyone know of a SMS app that will have the same seamless Moto Voice/Display integration as the stock SMS app? For example, seeing the SMS message notification (preview or whole message) as well as the picture of the person sending the message. Also, when you give the command "what's up" it will not only read the message, but read the person's name that sent the message. Let me know your thoughts.

I've been using Handsent, I wish the VZW Message+ app was more customizable. And I totally agree on the stock Messaging app it is lame! I wish Handsent was more intergraded with the Moto Voice/Display but I don't think there is anything that is like this.

I use Google messenger and it works just like you described.  It reads me the text and who it is from.  I used hangouts for a long time on my Moto X and it did the same.  I didn't really try the Verizon Message +, so I can't really comment on that.

I set and use Hangouts as my default SMS messenger on my Droid Turbo. Hangouts shows unread messages on MotoDisplay, message previews appear in the notification bar, and is read back by MotoVoice when asked "What's up."

Just curious, Why is the messenger + app so lame? I am not defending it but would like to know what I am missing. It seems to be very customizable and intergrates well.
