Potential solutions for Text messages not working :
Some users have found that they are unable to send or receive text messages on their new Pixel or Pixel XL.
- This issue has been faced mostly by users who have switched to the Pixel from the iPhone, and is related to iMessage. If you still have your old iPhone, go to Settings – Messages and turn off iMessage. If you have already sold it, you will need de-register the number from iMessage. You can do so here.
- Make sure that you haven’t accidentally blocked some users. Open the Messenger app and open the additional menu by tapping on the three vertical dots at the top right corner. Open “Blocked Contacts” and see if there are any numbers that aren’t supposed to be there.
