    When I click on a message to view it's details, it says the sent date is 12/14/71 at 2:30PM (or some other random date between 1968 and 1972). But the device time is current and correct.

    Welcome to Android Central! Hmm, that does seem odd. Does a restart of the device fix this? Has the messaging app been updated recently?

    Phone is a nexus 6. Android version 7.0. Everything is up to date. Tried restarting and clearing cache etc.

    If I use Hangouts, message details show the correct time
    If I use Google Messenger, message details have incorrect dates and times.

    If someone sends me a message, their message details show the correct date and time.

    Hmm, this is quite odd. It's interesting that it's app-specific and sender-specific. If a restart hasn't fixed anything and your other messaging apps are showing the correct date and time, I would suggest maybe reaching out to the app developers. It's a big entity, so to speak, but you never know!

    This problem is due to Google Updates. I had the same issue but after uninstalling all Messenger updates the problem was solved

    However, Google still have to make sure that any future updates don't cause the same problems.
    Over to you Google!
