Can a anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong!!!!!:) ,I have a 2019 sierra and I cant seem to get text messages displayed  while listen to the radio ,my calls come in fine .

The only way texts display on screen is if I'm in the android auto app while the phone is connected

Confirmed.  I asked that very question to the "technology guy" when I bought my '19 expecting it to be the same or better than my wife's '17 Equinox.  He told me that they removed the native text integration and added Android Auto and Apple Carplay instead.  He said that research claimed that everyone plugs in their phone to charge on every trip anyway so they defer to the phone to provide the integration.

Here’s the message I sent FYI:  

 

Hello. 
 
I recently purchased a 2019 GMC Sierra SLT Premium Plus and traded in a 2017 Ford F150.
 
I am surprised and disappointed that the one feature of my Ford I used the most, the messaging app, is not included on my new GMC.
I relied heavily on this app as I communicate with my employees and family via text while traveling. Having my incoming texts read aloud and the ability to respond by voice was the one feature I used the most.
 
I'm writing this email to request it be added back to my truck.
 
My VIN is ###
 
I know this can be done as numerous people on gm-trucks.com forum have been discussing how they have successfully had the app added back once requested. I understand I can use a tethered solution, such as CarPlay, however that does not work for me as I’m constantly in and out of my vehicle and can not accommodate the constant tether and untether. 
 
Thanks in advance and I look forward to my request being fulfilled and utilizing this excellent and safe feature. 
 
Much appreciated.

Yep. 2019 with August 2019 build date, purchase in late September without the text app. Here’s a link to the thread with info: 
 

Thanks. I also have an 8/19 build date by mine is a 2020. According to that thread, GM is not honoring the text app for 2020 models.

For what it’s worth, the thread also says they won’t honor it unless you had the app prior to Feb 2019, however, they gave it to me without hesitation based on my email.

Yeah, I think I’ll give it a shot & send them an email. Can’t hurt any & at the very least, I can voice my disappointment with their decision.
