    This option appears to have disappeared in iOS 10.

    You used to be able to "hold" on an iMessage and you'd get the option to "Send as Text Message". Now you only get the options to copy/delete/forward the iMessage or do the new iOS 10 animation gif things.

    Anyone know if the feature has been moved or just removed??

    Bit annoying as I use this feature all the time! :/

    I never got that option previously unless the iMessage was "hanging" (i.e., had been sent but not yet successfully delivered via the iMessage platform) - you could press down on the message and one of the options was "send as text message" so it would go out over SMS and, presumably, be received more quickly because it bypassed the iMessage platform. Conversely, if the Message had been successfully delivered over the iMessage platform, that "send as text message" option was no longer available.

    And that's still exactly how it works for me on iOS10 - just had to use this function yesterday.
