So I just figured this out today, I have made Live Messages/Live Drawings work on the S8 without root.
*This might work on any Samsung phone on nougat, I don't have any other devices to test it with, if someone tests it, let me know*

@ashokmor007 made a video tutorial on how to install this. Follow this if the instructions are not clear or if you just don't like reading.

THIS WILL NOT SHARE DIRECTLY TOO A TEXT FIELD UNTIL WE GET 7.1.1 or 8.0.0. IT WILL SAVE AS A GIF YOU CAN SEND. (I expect 7.1.1 in October because of how similar the Note8 and S8 are so easy port theoretically, also from the lack of updates. Also a Oreo beta should start Mid-October)

Version 2 of this app is just the second update. It allows you to change the resolution of it from Standard to High and also allows you to view past ones. There are probably also some other changes I just haven't seen or looked at. To install, just uninstall the old one and reinstall it. You do not need to toggle secure boot for this.

How to do this amazing thing:

1. Download .zip file linked
2. extract said file
3. toggle secure startup setting on your phone (if its on, turn it off, if its off, turn it on)
3.5. restart your phone
4. Install the 3 APKs
5. Go to any text box and change your keyboard to 'Samsung Keyboard Neural Beta'
6. Set that stuff up
7. Hold down on the button you normally use to access Emojis or settings
8. Select Live Drawings.
9. Draw to your hearts content.

OREO KEYBOARD (May not fully work on nougat, but will install):

Been posted here before and they're available on Apkmirror. You just have to use Samsung keyboard which sucks.

You should look more carefully. The other ways require root. The one on APKMirror is built for 7.1.1 and is missing A required font and such. I had to mod the apk. Also the keyboard wasn't working on non-root because odex files. Here is one that works. So no, it hasn't been posted before for non-root.

Yup, since you modified the APKs, they won't install (since both the keyboard and the messaging app exist on the device with different signatures).

    Added V2 to the OP. It is some bug fixes, new features, and a resolution changer. I think that's it but probably more. If you find stuff, use it I guess. But its in op. You do not need to toggle secure boot, just uninstall the old one and install the new one.
