Why doesnt message allow sending ics?

For a few years now I have had to switch to Samsung messages so that I cam send my Google calendar events through text.  It converts the ics to vcf I believe but still why cant message+ do this? Worked fine on my note 3 but doesnt work on my note 5.  Any ideas or should I just ditch the default Verizon app for the Samsung app which also has it's issues?

When I click share then ics (not text) it doesn't give me an option to use messages+ only the Samsung messages app.  If I tap text then it gives me messages+.  People like to receive the ics because then they can port it right into their Google calendar.

I replies to the email because there is no option on your forum to upload screenshots.  Apparently your email to me has false information when it says I cam just reply to email?

Motororays, we want you to get the most from our messaging service. What software version are you using? We can check by going to the application, then in the left-hand corner tap the menu button, scroll down, then tap on About.

Motororays, thank you for those additional details. I'm confident that we'll be able to find the issue here. If you go into the Google Play Store, is there an update for the Messsages+ applications? If so, please update this applications and then re-try sending an event through your calendar. Please keep us posted of the outcome.
