Frustrating - does anyone know a fix?
I am not sure why that is happening in your Text Messages.When I click on a youtube url sent to me via Text (I am using the Stock Messaging App FYI) a window opens asking we to choose the App I want to open it with. At first glance it downs't like like the YouTube App is a choice but if you swipe up there are more choices. That window only shows 4 lines of Apps at a time. The same thing happens when I try and click a YouTube link on the FB app. At first it asks me to choose a web browser but then (after I have chosen the Stock Browser) it brings up another App selection window and I can swipe up and choose the YouTube App. I have had the behavior you are speaking of but generally only when the link is vs YouTube.
