Mark messages as read on Android device

Hello,

Is there any way to sync the status of messages as being read on an Android phone?

For example, if I read a text on my laptop app, it doesn't show the message as being "read" on my phone. So by the time I look at my phone I have 16 "unread" messages even though it will show the most recent response that I sent from the app.

Please help. Thank you!
Vanessa

    Hi, since Android 5 there is only 1 default SMS app which is allowed to update the SMS database. This access is needed to mark the message as read on your smartphone.

    If you will use mysms as your SMS default app anything will work fine and synced.

    So please use mysms on your Android phone und you will get what you want.

    best regards
