    Is there a setting/limitation for the SMS notification sound in Marshmallow? This is what I am seeing on 2 different devices (Asus ZenFone & Blackberry PRIV) using same OS & Google Meessenger.

    When I'm in the SMS app after getting the initial notification sound, additional messages don't trigger the sound. I can see the messages because the app is open but no sound.

    Is this a "feature enhancement" of the OS or the Messenger app?

    I think it is the app. Some apps give you the option of always playing the notification sound, some don't.
    I use Textra. At sometime this feature was added to it.

    Thanks for the reply Joe. I'll try testing with Textra or another app.

    Just started using Textra. Quick question if you don't mind. When you get a text & click the notification shade to read or reply, it doesn't open it in the app by default. Just that convo. I can then reply but then it disappears. Is there a way to make it open the whole app instead?

    Got it...

    Open Textra, open Settings, choose Customize Notifications. At the top of this settings page is Action - press the action below (it will either say "Quick Reply with Keyboard" or "Quick Reply no Keyboard"). Change this option to "Full App" - from now on clicking a Textra notification will directly open the full application and it hitting send on a message will return you to either the message thread you replied to or the full list of all ongoing messages.

    Glad to see you have it figured out!

    When you get the time, wade through all the settings for Textra to see what all it can do, what you want it to do, and all the customizations that are possible.
