Turn your conversations into floating bubbles on your Galaxy phone
While text messages are a fun and convenient way to keep in touch with family and friends, having to constantly open your messaging app to read and reply can get repetitive. With the new Bubble feature for One UI 3, you can make your messages appear as little popups. Your most recent messages will remain in the bubble for you to view, and you can tap the bubble to open the conversation in a popup window. Now it will be easier to reply to texts while still enjoying your phone's other feature and apps.
Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries. One UI 3 is available on Galaxy phones including Note20, Z Fold2, Z Flip, Note10, Fold, S10 series, S20 series and S21 series. The update will be available on Galaxy A devices in the first half of 2021.
Note: In order to make texts appear as bubbles, there are two different settings you need to enable. Once you do that, your conversations will have a new look and functionality.
Maybe you want bubbles to only appear for certain contacts, such as your best friend. In this case, just turn on bubbles for individual conversations in the Samsung Messages app. Every other text message will appear regularly.
First, make sure you have turned on bubble notifications in the general Notification settings (see the previous section for details). When you are ready, open the Messages app, and then tap the More options icon (the three vertical dots). Tap Settings, and then tap Notifications. Recent conversations you have had will appear on this screen. Tap your desired conversation, and then tap the switch next to "Bubble this conversation".
Additionally, you can toggle bubbles through text notifications. When you receive a text, swipe down slightly on the notification to expand it, and then tap the square icon that appears to switch bubbles on or off.
Note: If recent conversations do not appear on the Notification page, you can try using the steps in the previous section to turn on bubble notifications.
Note: You can also use this feature with the Facebook Messenger app! Just adjust the required settings, and you'll be good to go.
If a conversation is finished or you no longer want to chat, you can remove the bubble popup from your phone’s screen.
Simply touch and hold the bubble icon and then drag it toward the bottom of the screen. An X will appear once you reach the bottom; drag the bubble on top of the X to delete the popup. Release your finger when you’re done.
