Samsung Messages app randomly sends photos to phone contact list
05 July 2018, 06:17 | Jodi Jackson
You might want to check the photos that are on your phone. Some users on the forum are complaining that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are also facing the issue.
"Oddly enough, my wife's phone did that last night, and mine did it the night before", saidReddit user Sfkn123. This message doesn't show up on their end, but the other person's phone shows the message as if it was sent manually.
T-Mobile began rolling out RCS support on Friday, but only to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. While there have been no known similar customer reports globally, we will continue to investigate this issue further. Samsung's Gallery app has a Shared tab that allows users to share their photos to a contact without leaving the gallery.
The cause of the problem isn't clear either, but a current theory is that a recent T-Mobile update that allowed for advanced texting features (like reading receipts, typing indicators, and advanced media sharing) is the glitches' source.
It wasn't too long ago that Samsung had to recall the Galaxy Note 7 after a huge number of reports surrounding battery failures and explosions.
As for Samsung, the company has admitted that there's a problem, adding that it's looking into how to go about sorting it out. I think it has something to do with the Samsung SMS app being updated from the Galaxy Store. You could try using a different texting app and/or revoking the Samsung Messages app's photo permissions to be safe. Troublingly, the app itself seems to have no record of the messages occurring at all, but the occurrences of the issue are visible through users' account usage histories on their carrier website.
"Samsung has reviewed this matter thoroughly these past few days; however, there were no hardware or software issues found to be relevant to this particular case", a Samsung spokeswoman said.
You should acknowledge that doing this will prevent you from sending multimedia messages via the Messages app until you turn permissions back on.
