Has anyone figured out how to send text messages from their 2016 7 series? I receive text messages, but there is no option to reply. I also don't have the option to initiate sending text messages.

Also, the option to receive emails is selected on my car, but my emails still are not showing up
:(:(:cry:

I have an Iphone 10, by the way.

Thanks in advance for the responses.

Emails only work with Android phones. It never works with iPhones. At least not in my experience.

I use AppleCarPlay in my car. Best thing ever. Youll never touch your phone again in the car. Works so well. Easy Add-On

Long press on the microphone button activates SIRI, I dictate and send the messages. I have not seen an option to reply through iDrive

I just had my Idrive updated a few days ago. I can reply via input or by voice to text messages. Works very well. I am using a Samsung Note 9. I was not able to do this prior to the update.I have not tried the e-mail portion yet.

I am unable to use Samsung Galaxy s7 with the Google Assist or S-Voice with my 2020 X3 so far. A long press of the voice assist button is erratic. The first press will bring up google assist, then I can ask it to read my last message. Sometimes it works and most of the time it does not, especially if I want reply.

Assume you tried unpairing and deleting the phone and then having the car discover it as a new device?
