While you can now apply a dark theme to Samsung Messages thanks to One UI, you may be able to further customize your text program. A good way to do this is to use a custom font that not only enhances the aesthetics of the app, but can also go a long way towards making your texts more readable and help you better process information.
Like Samsung's night-time functionality, custom fonts are used throughout the system. Besides letting you choose between different preloaded fonts, Samsung also allows you to download multiple fonts and set their overall size. And since Samsung Messages is such a text-heavy app, it may be the single app that can benefit to set a custom font.
Setting a New Font
It is not possible to apply a new font. Go to your Galaxy settings and select "Display", then select "Font size and style" and select "Font size." Then select a font from the specified list. Then you will be taken back to the previous page to preview your selection, then repeat the process as needed until you find a font you are happy with.
If none of the fonts used captures your fancy, you have the option to download extra fonts right from the Galaxy Store by tapping "Download Fonts" within the "Font style" page. Just keep in mind that many of the available packages need to be purchased in advance, so be careful when you go on this route.
In addition, you can also set the overall size of your texts in the "Font Size and Style" page by just dragging sideways in the bar within the "Font Size" tab to increase or decrease the size, as shown in the GIF below. You can also make the texts even easier to read by permanently braving them by tapping the shift next to "bold."
To increase the visibility of texts in Samsung Messages and other apps, you can activate the "High contrast" setting. To access this feature, go to the "Availability" page of the Settings app, and then select "Visibility Improvements". When you are inside, simply press "High Contrast Font" to turn it on. Just be aware that activating the feature will disable Night Mode if you have the dark theme enabled.
