I have a Nexus 5X with Android 8 (Oreo) and Android Messages v2.5.211

I can not call most numbers in messages by tapping them. After some research I found that is works for others, but not on my phone. What could be the cause?

Example: Working (not my phone): Working (not my phone)

Not working (my phone): Now working (my phone)

The first screenshot is from Android 7.1.1

  • What about numbers in international format? +38 xx xx xx xx xx – esQmo_ Oct 1 '17 at 20:18
  • @esQmo_ I think that is recognised. – David Balažic Oct 1 '17 at 21:14
  • Did this happen after the update? – esQmo_ Oct 1 '17 at 21:17
  • @esQmo_ I upgraded to Oreo recently and the Messages app is regularly updated (automatically). I'm not sure when the problem started though. – David Balažic Oct 2 '17 at 11:26
  • Should you try basic stuff such as clearing the caches (phone cache from the recovery and the app-android messages- cache from settings > applications) – esQmo_ Oct 2 '17 at 12:06
