Now that Hangouts is dead, we are forced to use something else for SMS messages. So I tried what I thought would work, and nothing happened. Then I 'Googled' what should be done, and every suggestion I read was completely WRONG. The Nexus 7 2013 with Android 6.0.1 has no SMS settings anywhere. Especially the Privacy and Safety settings. What happened? I have the preferred SMS application, Messages, but if you try to make it the default SMS application, nothing happens.
