Reasons for the recipient not receiving Fireworks text message

If you are sending any iMessage animation effect to an Android user, it will be shown as plain text. You can check who will receive your animation by looking at the text color. If the text appears in blue, the user has iMessage. If your text is shown in green, then it is a normal text message. Another reason you cannot see the effects is because of the outdated iOS version. Updating your software version by going into General Settings will solve these issues. Rarely you will encounter a Bug for such issues. If you feel it’s a Bug, try contacting Apple Support to fix the issue.
