    I have a LG G3 recently updated to Android 5.x. While texting yesterday I noticed that if I was typing (had the keyboard showing) and an incoming message arrived within my conversation, that the keyboard is forcibly closed. Thinking it was my built in LG messenger app, I downloaded the Go SMS Pro, Handcent SMS, Chomps, and Google Messenger apps. They all behave the same way.

    I then tested my wife's iPhone. When she gets incoming messages they just show up, without forcing the keyboard to close.

    So, is this the way it is supposed to work? I have never noticed it before. Could this be a LG upgrade-to-Lollipop issue?

    Thanks.

    I haven't had that problem.

    Haven't had this problem and I'm on Lollipop either. However, I do use Textra as the text messaging app and I also use Swiftkey as the keyboard instead of the default apps.

    That is not functioning properly. Please try going into settings, apps and goto all and find your keyboard app. It might be easier to find it under running. Click it and then click clear cache and restart your phone.

    Let us know if this fixes the issue! If it doesn't, you can go further and click clear data for the keyboard, which might erase your personal dictionary if you set up words in it, and other customizations.
