    Texting a friend from 10.0.1 to their newly updated 10 and it won't send messages (invisible ink, loud, exc.) with the effects.

    Tried it on my iPad Pro with 10 (no beta) and it's sending fine..

    Anybody?

    Yep I'm having the same problem as well. It works fine on my iphone 6S plus running the GM,However my mom's phone that just updated can't see any of that and can't send it. When you long press the send button nothing happens. And when I send something such as the slam effect it just shows the text and in commas it says (sent with slam effect). Can't figure it out.

    I think it's bugged. When I try sending the whole screen animations such as lasers or fireworks my messaging app crashes.

    Another user figures it out. Gotta turn off reduce motion for it to work.

    I had that issue also, turn iMessage off and then back on to reactivate it

    I'm guessingg new iOS 10 iMessage features won't work when sending to any <10 iOS devices?

    Reduce Motion must also be turned off in Accesibility options
