I changed from apple to andriod Galaxy Samsung S10 last week and i cannot work out how to text using wifi. Please tell me how to change this so i can send and recieve texts over wifi. The Chat option in messages settings doesnt seem to do anything. I would use Whatsapps but my bf refuses to use it....

@Vickyb 

You can't send a standard sms over wifi.

Your iPhone uses iMessage so will work but your only option is an app now.

@Vickyb WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger are the most commonly used platforms over WiFi. Looks like you'll have some convincing to do with your boyfriend.

You’re welcome even if not the answer you hoped for.

That does not help the people who need to be able to text over wifi due to no phone signal in the area...
