Post [LG APP] Enable Group Messaging

It was brought to my attention that some of these G2 variants aren't supplying their stock Messaging Apps with the ability to Group Message:



And I'll soon Upload the APK from the Verizon LG G2 that has this feature. I don't know what it will break (if anything) and you will need Root and a file explorer to copy the file over.

Attached Uploaded files here.

The Name is LGUSMms.apk. So you will probably need to rename it to match whatever your existing MMS apk is named. Also the SMS portion, which may be needed to call the MMS apk is named VZWSMS (Verizon SMS). So it seems it is specific. This will also probably need to be renamed to match your existing Messaging.

I had to ZIP the files because of the size. So you would just unzip and manually move into:
Code:
 /SYSTEM/APP/
Also check permissions.

I think mine sends group messages fine but receives them individually. I'm on T-Mobile variant.

Receiving generally is more based on how the user responds to you and if they're enabled for group messages or if they even want too.

I have the T-Mobile variant too, I don't think it sends group messages but just sends mass messages. Which are two different things. ( I could be wrong)

I don't know why LG or T-Mobile could make this easier on everyone. Only solution that I know is to download a third-party app. Which sometimes for me messes with the original sms app. Plus, I love the popup for the original sms app.

Yeah it allows you to send to 10 people. I can use go sms and group messages are fine.

I like the stock sms on the G2 as well but been using hangouts for most stuff now. Hangouts isn't quite fully-featured yet though so on occasion I will use stock. No more go sms unless I'm backing up messages.

No dice for me on Sprint. I didn't think it would be this easy, but I was hoping. Lol It didn't even show up in my App Drawer. Thanks for posting these though.

Have you tried renaming them and replacing your existing apps?

LG is good at blocking apps from appearing in the launcher. The FM Radio is another example. I would think that if you made backups of your old APKs and replaced them with these, the tie-ins would allow it to be launched.
