    Hey guys I was wondering if there is a way to get a pop up message I guess that's what it's called. When I had my s7 you could respond to a text without getting off browser or whatever other app you were on. Can you do that with the iPhone 7?

    Force touch the text notification and it pops out the chat log without going to the imessage app. Can also slide down notification center and force touch the notification.

    Yeah but that still opens the app. What I was hoping for was to be able to respond to a text while on the browser!! Something like this.

    Put your finger on the notification and swipe down.

    if you use force touch on the banner message when it pops up you can reply without leaving the app you're in and not opening iMessage.

    Here is an example from my 7+. I have the score app open and I'm replying directly to the message without leaving the score app.

    You can do that using quick reply from a notification that comes up (as a banner or alert) or from pulling down notification center and doing it from there.

    I don't think it's possible. I googled for it before but useful was found.

    Sure it is, it's just quick reply, as explained in various replies already.
