We have found this topic “com.samsung.android.messaging” in many forums, most of the people were afraid of this pop-up message, So we have decided to present the best answers and resolution for you in this blog. Read the article till the end to understand it in deep.
What is com.samsung.android.messaging?
We can understand by breaking down the name in smaller chunks, we will be going right to left as this is the format for syntax reading. The first chunk is “messaging” and we all know what it stands for. The next chunk is “android” so it is clear that this syntax is for devices running the Android OS, maybe smartphones or tablets. The next chunk is “Samsung” suggesting that this syntax is exclusively used for Samsung smartphones. The last chunk is “com” which is a format used for reading the syntax and not meant for users.
com.samsung.android.messaging is a file found in your “Android” file in your files directory.
So now we understand what the syntax stands for in your smartphone. The reason behind using such odd syntax is that these are not meant to be used by syntax and this is how web pages interact with servers. You can notice the similar backward written syntax used for apps on the play store. For example, the link for our own app on the Play Store is: click here
Here you can notice that the syntax is similar to the one we are learning about in this article.
What is the use of com.samsung.android.incallui in it?
Most of the time we found that com.samsung.android.messaging is related to com.samsung.android.incallui We understand what the syntax means. But why use the syntax in the first place?
So whenever a computer system is designed, it can not understand our language as we speak. It focuses more on logical reasoning you can say, so for us Samsung Messages is enough to understand that the person is talking about the SMS app by Samsung. But a computer can not understand this, so we are providing it with enough information so it can perform the given task without any problem. This is not so practical or seems to make sense in this but when it comes to programming, the computer is much more efficient than any human. It needs a few lines of code to understand something, but we would need an entire page to understand the same thing. This is the reason we use syntax in the first place, and this is not meant to be used by the users in daily life. So if it is written backward or is complex then it does not bother a lot of people.
It is a common possible one of the messaging apps mentioned below in detail. It is a 99% SMS application 1% hacking chance. Most of our activity on the Google account coordinates the time of posting the SMS, and you received this message “com.samsung.android.messaging.”

What is samsung messaging?
We saw what the URI(com.samsung.android.messaging) stands for and how to understand the syntax. But what is a Samsung message!?
So as we all know our smartphones come with a built-in messaging application. Keep in mind that we are talking about text messages or SMS rather than online messaging which is a topic for another day. So Samsung gave us their own messaging app which Samsung smartphone users use for the SMS along with MMS services, it has a yellow icon and can be located easily. With the help of the Samsung message app, you can send an SMS to another person, and is quite reliable.
Features of Samsung messages
Now there are some features of Samsung messages which you may not know and are quite handy.
- You can block a number so they can no longer send you an SMS. This comes handy when you are receiving a lot of spam messages.
- You can directly search for the contact to see their messages. Or you can search for any keyword from the message in case you can’t remember who sent you. For example, if it was related to a glossary then just search the name of any item you remember. Let’s say “avocado” then that message will pop-up and you can read that complete message.
- With the help of the app, you can send and receive SMS (Short Message Service) along with MMS (Multimedia Message).
- If you receive an URL with an anonymous number, you can preview the website without having to open the link. But we would suggest you don’t open or even preview any such link as it can compromise your phone’s security.
- The messages are protected with a built-in app, this prevents other people from opening your phone’s.
- You can use multiple SIMs for sending messages, whenever you write an SMS and send it. The app asks you to select which SIM you want to send the app from, this feature is very handy for people with dual SIM. You can even set a particular SIM for a contract and the SMSs will be sent from that SIM only.
- Pin a message if it is important or you want to read it later.
- There is a very handy option for people with ability, you can use the “accessibility” option and the phone will talkback and read the message for you.
Permissions for smooth functioning
Now there are certain permissions you have to grant to the app for its smooth functioning. As the app is made by Samsung themselves, we can provide it with all the permissions without thinking or worrying about our privacy or security. These permissions are:
- Camera permission: This comes handy when you are sending someone an image or video and have to use in-app features. However, you can avoid giving it permission by just using the gallery for sending the media.
- Storage permission: As we mentioned above, if you are sending any sort of image or video or even audio, then you need to provide it with access. But if you don’t use the MMS, then you can skip giving it permission.
- Microphone permission: This is understood that in order to send someone a voice note, you need to record it and send it.
- SMS permission: This is the most important as without this permission the app is useless. So you should provide the app with permission without thinking much.
- Contacts permission: This is also an important part of the app as it needs to identify who is sending messages and to whom you want to send the message. So provide the app with permission.
- Phone permission: You can choose to either provide the permission or not as you are not going to make calls from the messaging app. But it does let you know who called or if a person is not available to take calls.
- Location permission: It is totally up to you if you want to give permission or not as very rarely people send locations using the messaging app. We would suggest you avoid giving permission to save the battery when the GPS is turned on your device.
