    Does anybody have issues with sms in the Hub? When I try to open an sms message it says "to send an sms with hangouts, turn on sms in settings"

    I'm not trying to use hangouts. Is there a fix or anyone else having his issue ?

    Go into System Settings --> ... More (at the top) --> and try toggling your Default SMS app setting between Hangouts and Messenger.

    Swipe down from the top of the screen twice and tap the Settings (cog) button.
    Tap on More
    Tap Default SMS app
    Change it to use Messenger

    Give that a shot and try send an SMS from the HUB again.

    Tried that out and still didn't fix it. I tried uninstalling the updates and updating the Hub app again but still same thing.

    Can you confirm that the default SMS app is set to Messenger?
    Maybe try uninstalling Google Hangouts.

    Hey guys I just got my priv earlier today and I wanted to know if there is any way to get the blackberry hub working with the hangouts app? I understand it seems to work with messenger, but the only reason I am asking this is because I also wear an android wear watch and for me to be able to reply to sms conversations through my watch when I want to I need to have hangouts set as my default sms, or it will not work. Is there any way to integrate the hub to work with hangouts?
    Just make sure Hangouts is set as the default app in the OS settings, and I think it should work the same way it works with Messenger.
