I tried downloading the "Messages" app by Wear OS, which lets me view old messages, but it does not download all past messages (most recent ones are not even showing up). It also changes my default phone messages app which I don’t really want to change up. I don’t want to have to use another app JUST to check past messages on my new smartwatch.
So WHY can I not view past messages on this thing? It makes no sense that I can view notifications only, text message anyone, but can’t just scroll through old messages from my standard Android messaging app.
[UPDATE: FOUND IT!!!]
