    Default Messaging/screen affects not working???

    I'm not getting the capability to use screen affects when sending a message. Nothing happens when I press the "send" icon.

    Any known solution?

    Yeah, doesn't do anything. It should bring up a menu for affects but it doesn't

    You need to go to settings -> general -> accessibility and then turn OFF reduce motion

    With later betas they have changed it to only work that way. I much prefer reduce motion on but that means no message effects.

    I have reported it and would suggest you do the same.

    My reduce motion is on and I have no issues sending iMessages with effects.

    It might just be a randomly occurring beta bug.

    Really? Reduce motion is ON and it works?

    I submitted a report to Apple and got a note back that it was related to reduce motion when they didn't work originally.

    You can send balloons and fireworks with reduce motion on? Are you still on public beta 2?

    Yep. I turned it back off because I prefer motion but yeah, both work on my end.

    So if you set it this way with it ON you can still send message effects? Balloons, slam, etc.? Not talking about thumbs up, etc. What phone are you using?

    This has been disabled for the last few betas.

    Weird. I hate the regular effects so always have reduce motion ON (I much prefer the dissolve) but it loses those effects.

    The build # is typically the same, though.

    It only works with Reduced Motion OFF for me, pb6, 5s. Of course, since I'm on a 5s, I'm used to not getting all the toys the cool kids get!

    Lucky me though, I like the Motion so I keep RM OFF. So this feature/bug doesn't bite me. I'd like to know exactly why Apple changed course on this. Were they having some conflict?

    Both RM (On) and Enhanced Messages would/will be desired by a lot of people.

    My previous post said I got the options with RM On but that should have been RM OFF. With it On, I get just vanilla, no sprinkles.

    I'm not sure if anyone has answered you, but you need to be on a iOS10 public beta and Reduce Motion has to be off in order to work.
