    From all the time I've used Hangouts which is a while I can only tell you paragraphs within one message isn't possible (or obvious as I've never managed it)

    Assuming texting works the same as the message function anyway, I use 8sms for texts.

    I was wondering too.
    It's there when writing e-mails, but not for SMS ???

    I don't see the Option with the stock keyboard. I use swiftkey though and it has a return key. Other keyboards may as well.

    8sms doesn't have it either. Neither does Messenger (Facebook). As hinted at above, if the text entry field does not allow paragraphs, you won't get an enter key. You'll get an onscreen send arrow instead.

    Hangouts will allow paragraphs. I do it all the time with swiftkey. Not sure why stock keyboard doesn't have it.

    That's hilarious! I totally meant swiftkey keyboard. I don't use the stock keyboard.

    I wasn't sure if that was a typo or not so I checked and sure enough, pressing the shift key displays a return key in place of emoji.

    I mean, I take full credit for that. :D:vroam:

    Aha, I'm on the Swiftkey beta, holding just brings up emoji and tapping just sends.

    there is no other way to this, especially if you dont want to keep using samsung keyboard

    just one solution...
    this

    in hangouts

    in keyboards

    press and hold "mike" button

    go to settings... with the gear symbol

    go to " my hot keys"

    turn it on

    choose any number from 1 to 0 (in this case i choose 0)

    press enter key

    ... thats it back space and go out of the settings

    now go to hangouts an d type something
    to go to next line , press and hold key 0

    BINGO... u have an enter key

    cheers

    If you're using the google keyboard app, you can access the enter key by changing the emoji button using shift to get to capitals. It should then allow you to use an enter key. Please note that this does not work with the automatic capitalization; you need to shift yourself.

    EDIT: Ah, it seems OP already discovered that.

    EDIT EDIT: corrected a typo

    I've just tried that on mine and I don't need to hold the emoji button, just press 'shift' and the emoji key becomes a return/enter key.
