Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Change Bubble and Background Styles in Messaging App in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

The stock Messaging app in the Samsung Galaxy S5 displays the incoming and outgoing messages back and forth within a conversation so that you can see your message with particular contact in a single place. Another best part of this app is that you can change the message bubble and also the background image within conversations. It will give a new look for your conversations and you can also make the conversations more personal by applying your own picture as the background image.

  4. Change the bubble style.
    • Tap Bubble style.

    • Tap Save button.
    • The selected bubble style will be applied.
