Review from Daniel Alexander
When I get a message, all it displays is the amount of messages. It doesn't show whom it's from. It would read "1 from: [blank]." Sucks. This ext hasn't been updated in over three years.
No Google Voice voicemail support You understand that many people use Google VOICE for voicemail right? Make it clearer in your description that this only works for TEXT messages through Google Voice. You will save lots of people time and frustration.
Yes, I undetstand it is for Google Voice text message So unlike the rest of the people who did not read the descriptipn, I actually understand the purpose is for messages and not voicemail. With that said, I still can't get the darn thing to work. I downloaded Dash Clock which is working fine, but it's not showing message count when new Google Voice messages arrive (like in your screen shot examples). If we get this puppy to work, I'll give more stars.
Worked great til the a few days ago It shows an unread message from last weeks thread even though I have been continuously reading and replying. I barely noticed yesterday. Both on Nexus 7.2 and Galaxy Nexus VZW Edit: actually, from reading other reviews I forgot to check accessibility, it turned itself off so I switched it back on and eureka it works again.
Overally good ..but not with the latest update. Cannot get it stop showing number of unread messages (when in fact there are none) when switching on new notification option and turning off accessibility).
Doesn't work I don't want to give this a low rating because it seems to work for other people, but this app is not display any notifications from Google Voice on my Nexus 7. Yes, I have Google Voice installed, and it does send notifications to the notification shade.
Broken Occasionally this will actually work, but usually it just shows that there aren't any new messages when there definitely are.
- (Android 4.3+ only) Added notification listener service for monitoring messages. This is the Google-suggested method and is strongly recommended. Make sure to turn off the old accessibility service as well.
- Fix Settings shortcut inside extension settings. The shortcut now directly goes to accessibility service settings. This should hopefully fix the crashes due to inconsistency between different devices.
- Other bug fixes and improvements.
