No matter how popular WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger or any other chat platform might have become the traditional way of sending a message is preferred by many people. This way of messaging is both trusted and reliable.
You can add some flair to the text messages with your signature at the end is pretty cool and useful too. This is especially if you are sending a message to someone who doesn’t have your contact details saved on their phone. You can even add one-liners or a personalized phrase that you would like to share with/as your signature.
Despite being an interesting feature adding signature has been removed by most manufacturers including Samsung. All those using smartphones manufactured after 2016 will not find this feature. The Galaxy S7 was the first phone that came without this feature. However, you can use this feature with the help of a third-party app. There are many apps and cellular providers that offer messaging apps that have this feature and you can enable and use this feature.
