Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-6562) sms: URI scheme doesn't work with Hangouts on KitKat
Date Wed, 14 May 2014 16:59:16 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-6562:

This is weirder.  I have TextSecure setup on my Moto X, but instead of launching TextSecure,
it uses Messages.  I don't know why the Moto X even has messages, but for some reason it launched
that application.  I'll have to see if we're able to take the Stack code.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 3.4.0
>         Environment: Reproduceable on Nexus 5 (Android version 4.4.2) with stock Hangouts
as only sms app.

>             Fix For: Master
> An URI like _"sms:12345678?body=This is a text message"_ in HTML should either launch
the SMS app or show a list of apps able to handle the intent.
> On KitKat with only Hangouts installed neither of the two scenarios happen.
> The class {{org.apache.cordova.CordovaWebViewClient}} needs to have method {{shouldOverrideUrlLoading()}}
changed so that URLs starting with _"sms:"_ is handled properly in KitKat and beyond. The
current implementation is for pre-KitKat.
