On some devices, especially Motorola ones, disabling the stock Messaging app will cause any app that you set to handle SMS to crash when sending an outbound SMS. While other system apps may be safe to disable, I would recommend against disabling the stock Messaging app. See this question for more details.

I haven't experience any major problems after using the integrated SMS/Hangouts. Only thing is that you may take some time to get used to it. However, it's a matter of preference. Some may prefer separate apps to avoid pain of selecting whether to send SMS or start a Hangout. But to answer your question, no, nothing to be taken care of.

"Assistant" for Android is free and it reads incoming text messages aloud, and it will let you dictate a response. It does many of the other things that "Google Now" does, only not as well.

Might be a small bug because it is specific to only one contact. Hoping you've saved all the stuff you want from that thread, delete the thread/whole conversation. If you don't mind delete the contact also by writing his number somewhere. Now start fresh again by creating the contact again and see what happens. Comment.

Wipe your phone, and reinstall the OS following the official instructions. Make sure to download the ROM images on a computer that isn't backdoored, and verify the checksums before you install. That's the only way you'll be able to trust this device with private data again. Since you don't know how this malware was installed, you also don't know what other ...

OK, I think they've fixed it some weeks ago, as I didn't notice any new SMS message that comes after a real hangouts message.

Check out PVLL. The app lets you schedule texts in the future. It also has an automatic delay of 5 seconds before sending, called the "5 second rule", so that I can cancel any errant texts that I send.. Works for me. And there's a sharing layer on top of SMS that lets you share your conversations easier. I use it instead of taking screenshots or cut and ...

It also has a feature that lets you schedule texts in the future, and there's a sharing layer on top of SMS that lets you discuss your conversations. I use it instead of taking screenshots or cut and paste.

Yes indeed you can! It's not a 'stock' or 'Hangouts' feature though, but there are apps that can perform this functionality. SMS notifier on the Google Play store has this option as you will see in the screenshots for it. Off the record a friend said that Google tend to prefer you to Activate something, rather than mark as read! That's why you don't ...

If you go through your apps list you can see all the apps that have permission to send texts (or you could use appops to save having to click on every app), you can then narrow it down based on how reputable the app is, and/or doing web searches, once you thing you have narrowed down the app you can either, uninstall the app or block the permission using app ...

After the 160 char threshold messages become MMS I believe. MMS of course uses your data connection. If you have poor data connectivity in your area or have some sort of mms restriction or other account based mms alteration, this may also be the cause.

Whatsapp broadcast list may help you, i'm not %100 percent sure but it says "you should use broadcast lists to message multiple people at once." and as long as it is not group the others dont see the individual replies (i think)

Sometimes, when I send the same text to multiple people, if they are in a group chat on their iPhone and add me, then I can see who is texting who (or at least the numbers of the people). If I'm holding a group chat in Google Hangouts I can see the people as well. Otherwise.... There is not way to tell.

There is no way to tell, unless you are the sender, who it went to. A blank to address or the senders name in the To field are usual giveaways but they are not accurate as one that always send a BCC message to a single person. Email on Android devices generally does not allow you to even see the headers.
