Question for those of you that use Hangouts for your SMS and also use the Motorola Connect Chrome extension - when you read a text message on your desktop, does that clear the notification on your phone? When I use the stock messaging app for SMS and read a new text on my desktop the notification is instantly cleared on my phone, but if I use Hangouts for SMS and read a new text on my desktop, the notification on my phone remains. Just wondering if that's how it's supposed to be or if my situation is unique.

I use EvolveSMS and it's the same for me. When I read a message in Chrome, the notification stays active on my phone. I would guess that it only clears with the stock messaging app.

I just tried it both ways and can confirm that when using Hangouts the message does not show as read if it was read using Connect. I didn't realize until this thread that it did show as read when using SMS. Now I'm thinking of going back to SMS instead of Hangouts.

Thanks for the replies, guys. That's what I suspected so I guess I'll stick with the stock messaging app since having unread notifications is one of my biggest pet peeves...

Maybe Moto will update Connect? Hopefully they do. Everything else "seems" to work fine with Hangouts. I may just stick with Hangouts since I do the majority of my texting on the phone itself.
