Android 8
« on: Oct 20, 2018, 11:27 AM »
My moto Z will not open live links in messages or email.  10 Days ago I stumbled on a setting to change that, but now I can't locate that setting.

Do you have any idea here?

I don't know how much help I can be with this. Are you using the Gmail app for your email? If so, the only thing I can think of is to go into the Gmail app settings and scroll down to "Open web links in Gmail." Mine is currently checked.

As for opening links in messages, I have no other ideas.

Thanks, I'll try that.
That worked, thank you.  I was also able to add my regular email account from my ISP to the Gmail app.

The downside to this was that the Gmail App downloaded about 3 months of past emails.
