    If you pull down on an iMessage notification in order to read/see the whole message, but DO NOT reply at that moment, does that act mark the message as read? Or will it still show as unread when you open the Messages app, and still show as unread to the person who sent it to you?

    I use that pull down frequently since I have "message preview" off. I like to be able to pull down on the notification, look at the message, but still have the "badge" on the Messages app there to remind me to reply.

    Can someone with iOS 8 let me know how the new functionality works?

    Thanks!

    You can't pull down and quick reply without message preview enabled.
    Also I can't figure out how to quick reply from the lock screen even with previews on. Seems that a pass code prevents quick replies from the lock screen? I may just not have an option enabled apparently though

    I got it to work on lock screen with preview turned off and passcode on.

    What about in another app though?

    Nah, had a setting disabled. That's why.

    In iOS 7, if I am in an app, when I get an iMessage, the notification just says the person's name and "iMessage." I can then pull down on the notification and it will show me what the full message text is.

    Are you saying this does NOT happen in iOS 8? If you do NOT have message preview on, what happens? I'd imagine the notification still comes in, says "iMessage" but when you pull down, it doesn't show what the message is? And you can't quick reply? That seems unfortunate...

    Interesting, didn't know iOS 7 had something like that.

    Hi,
    iPhone 5 here and quick reply isn't working on FaceBook, is anybody else seeing this?

    Thanks

    They will need to update their app to take advantage. I believe what was shown is conceptual for Facebook at this point (as well as any other 3rd party apps).

    This is exactly what happens. I wish it were like iOS7 because I don't like Previews turned on. But as of this beta 1 implementation, Quick Reply is useless if you have Previews turned off. I hope they change that.

    If you got a message in iOS 7 you could pull down the notification and it would bring out Notification Center where you message would be displayed regardless of whether or not you had previews turned on.

    which basically renders it useless because there's no way to know what you're replying to unless you open the Messages.app. I hope this gets fixed so we don't have to resort to turning on previews.

    I could test this....but would rather ask - what if you pull down the notification center when a text comes in. Can you respond from the notification center (which supposedly will show the text with or without preview on)?

    EDIT: Yes you can....though you either have to swipe up the banner before pulling down the notification center or let it disappear. While the banner exists, you can't access NC.

    But its a work around for b1 users with preview off who want to QR without going into iMessage.

    No I just don't like the idea of random people Picking up my phone and seeing my conversations

    Good find! This is a nice workaround!

    How does quick reply work with pop-ups enabled instead of banner notifications? Is it possible to quick reply from the pop-up similar to the way biteSMS operates?

    Yeah, it functions similar to biteSMS. Someone posted a screenshot on here but I don't remember where it was posted.

    So it sounds like this was addressed in iOS 8 beta 2.

    Do the banners still disappear after a few seconds? Or is there a setting to keep message banners there until they're read?

    That would be more of an alert which is a different type of notification that can be used instead of a banner that is designed to disappear.

    Such a shame. Banners are a much better type of notification, but for me, the disappearing is a deal breaker.

    There's no way they'd pop up and stay there. Too obtrusive.
