Bug Description

I received a text with a URL in it. In the messaging app, it is blue and I am able to tap it to open the browser, but in viewing the same message in the message indicator I am not.

indicator-messages is the backend of the messaging menu. unity8 handles the UI.

I'm actually not sure there's anything to do in unity8 here, ubuntu-settings-components is probably the only culprit here. Please talk to the messaging app folk to find out how they're doing it, and ideally use the same code or at least approach.
