Im having the same problems with my text messaging on my Sony X Performence. It seemed to start right after my last update a week or two ago.

Does anyone know why the sms Messenger has just totally crashed? I tried restarting the phone but it refuses to do anything for over an hour now. It just keeps showing me 'Messenger is not responding'. Is this a known issue? It's pretty serious as sms is my main method of communication!

i found another temporary workaround:
after opening message thread list don't open any thread if circles near names are in same color. in that case scroll little bit down and up to make circles near names coloured with different colors, after that you can open any thread without issue..
it seems that this name coloring feature used in sony messaging app is used from stock android / chrome functionality (similar to stock contacts, phone app..)

Anyone know if Sony are actually bothering to do something about the SMS issue. Nearly every time, the in-built messaging app locks up if you open an existing conversation.
It is pretty pathetic that a Sony phone cannot even properly handle an SMS, something that's been around since consumer cellphones appeared.
I have really lost all faith with Sony and I no longer perceive them as a premium brand. Just a premium price.

Welcome to the community.
This issue has been caused due to the latest update of Google Chrome, version 60.**. This issue will be corrected in an upcoming software release of Google Chrome. Note! Software rollouts are a phased process – timing & availability may vary by market/carrier.
A workaround until the updated version of Google Chrome is available is to uninstall the latest update from Google Chrome, and then disable automatic updates in Settings.
To uninstall the latest update from Google Chrome
To disable automatic updates from Google Chrome
Please note this will not stop you from using the Google Chrome application until the update is released.
