    Is there a way to replace the default app? I set a different app as the default, but messaging stopped working.

    So which app did you select a default SMS app?

    You can't use whatsapp as default SMS app if that's what you're asking

    You can replace it with a different messaging app albeit not with Whatsapp

    Ok. Is there a published reason why what's app won't work? Is there a list of acceptable apps or do I need to guess until I get it right?

    Because WhatsApp don't allow it. Nothing to do with OnePlus.
    personally I always use Google messages on my phones.

    Until the day Whatsapp allow you to send messages as SMS as opposed to over data, I don't think this will be possible 🤷‍♂️

    Exactly, and it probably never will since whatsapp's owners (facebook) already have messenger for that.
