Samsung Galaxy S7 & Text Messaging Reads

So I recently upgraded my phone from a Galaxy S5 to a S7 - and now the UConnect isn't acknowledging / reading my my text messages anymore.

(default system - not subscribed to the annual Uconnect system add on)

I get the notification that the hands free system is working.
I can go to the phone setting and see my texts, phonebook, etc...

But the read function / alert when I get a text is no long functional.

Anyone have any thoughts on what might be wrong / what I can do to fix this? I rather liked that it let me hear my texts when I was driving and allowed me to respond with the default built in list of messages.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 & Text Messaging Reads

go to your bluetooth settings on your galaxy (think its a gear icon or an arrow next to UCONNECT source) and check that you have messaging capabilities enabled. i had mine on for awhile and then got annoyed with the uconnect sytem mispronouncing nearly everything so i turned it off this way

Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 & Text Messaging Reads

Update:

So it seems most of the times when i dont get the text alert on the uconnect its when i get txt msgs from wifey. We both have the S7 Edge. So some stupid setting on the phone is preventing it. Im guessing its the damn smart lock.

Now when i send my self a msg from my work phone (iphone 5s) the msgs come through with no issues. I have a pass lock on the iphone just as i have a password and finger print on the s7e.


F annoying.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 & Text Messaging Reads

The update regarding siri? Seems its mainly for siri. I dont have an iphone. Does the update have any other enhancements not mentioned in the log?

Yes it does more than just add Sirius. Multiple other bug fixes.

It also is buggy as heck according to multiple reports.

I also don't have an iPhone and have no plans on installing this "upgrade". There is nothing major it does for non-iPhone users.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 & Text Messaging Reads

So ive snooping around and came across an android forum and there are other folks having similar issue with this device.different vehicle and some mention the wk2. Some believe it to be the marshmellow os for some vehicles.

Some users who own vehicle with uconnect state they have no issues.

I really dont want to reset my phone. But dammit is it annoying snd it only happens with txt from wifey. I get my txts from work iphone.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 & Text Messaging Reads

I have the latest updated Uconnect and the Galaxy phone and have no issues at all. Everything works just as it should and I could not be happier with the system.

If it were me. I would remove my phone from Uconnect, update the Uconnect with the latest update, and then re-pair my phone.
