No longer able to receive SMS over wifi S9

Newbie

For some reason I have lost the ability to send/receive SMS over wifi. I travel abroad often and am always able to receive texts when i'm on airplane mode and connected to wifi. But for some reason my settings have been tweaked and none of my messages go through. I also get an alert that "textra has been detected as my messaging app" and while that is my default app an alert like that never used to pop up. I have the wifi calling turned on, even though it never needed to be turned on in the past and I got my SMS. Help!

Being able to stay connected when home and abroad is a must, Edunlapp. Have there been any recent or available updates for your applications or device? Are you having any issues with the native text messaging application if you switch the default texting application?
