asked in Hangouts Android App by Michael
Hi,

I have google nexus 5(LG) with hangouts as default sms app.

After latest update I'm unable to mark sms as read without internet. After reading it - sms stays bold until you reread it with internet.

I can't use inet every day, and its very anoying to see tons of sms as bold(unread) however those already read.

How to make them read immediately after reading(opening) without internet?

Thanks,
Michael.

Hey there,

I would try to clear the app's cache.  Go to your phones settings --> apps --> locate Hangouts --> clear cache/data.  Then try and relaunch the app as normal.

If that's a no-go, I would uninstall the app completely from the Play Store, restart the phone entirely, then reinstall the app and try to open at that point.

Report back if you have no luck!

SOLUTION! Disclaimer - I tried the Do not Disturb idea posted, but it was already set to off. SETTINGS > NOTIFICATIONS > ADVANCED > HANGOUTS (showed as Muted) > Turn OFF "Show Silently" > (Optional "Set as priority" > ON) Should be all set. I wonder why the default is to be silent.

Where/what exactly is voice.google.com? Had to look at that in my chrome browser - because it's not an app - on my phone but it just takes me to the Fi app in Google Play Store. Perhaps a screenshot of what you are using to get to the Settings menu?
