Can get I get my messages to be read out loud? t

Hello,

My old LG G3 was setup with Messaging+ to use google to read aloud my incoming txt messages.

I cannot get my new Samsung S8+ to do the same.

I have tried enabling and disabling both Samsung keyboard and Google Keyboard under Settings-Language and input, and also tried enabling each TTS engine of Samsung and Google as well. I have downloaded the voice files, and can "listen to example"  but can't get the incoming txt's to read aloud.

I am hoping it is just a simple thing I am over-looking.

Thank you!

Ok, finally found it!  Once TTS is enabled under "Language and input", there is an option withing the Message+ app itself to check under settings, "Read incoming messages"

Duh!  Took me forever to find that,

Hope it helps someone else.
