|How To Stop Duplicate Text Messages on Android|
If you’re like most people, you probably receive a lot of text messages throughout the day. And if you’re like me, sometimes you may not even realize that you’ve received two (or more) of the same message until after you’ve already read it. This can be really frustrating, especially if the messages are important. But luckily, there is a way to stop duplicate text messages on Android.
What are duplicate text messages, and why do they happen?
Duplicate text messages are exactly what they sound like: two (or more) identical messages that you receive within a short period of time. There are a few different reasons why this might happen, but the most common one is simply because your phone didn’t receive the first message. This can be due to poor reception, a temporary glitch with your carrier, or even just because you were in a low-signal area when the message was sent.

Another reason you might receive duplicate text messages is if you have multiple devices that are connected to the same account. For example, if you have an Android phone and an iPad, any texts that you receive on your phone will also be sent to your iPad. This can be really annoying if you’re not expecting it, but luckily there are some easy ways to stop it from happening.
How to stop them from happening on Android
If you’re using an Android phone, there are a few different ways that you can stop duplicate text messages from being sent to your device. One option is to go into your Settings and turn off the “Sync Text Messages” option. This will prevent any texts that you receive on your phone from being automatically sent to your other devices.
Another option is to install a third-party texting app like Textra or Pulse. These apps give you more control over how your texts are delivered, and they also have an option to disable duplicates.
Additional ways to prevent duplicate text messages on other devices
If you’re using an iPhone, there’s no way to completely stop duplicate text messages from being sent to your device. However, you can reduce the chances of it happening by making sure that your phone is set to “Do Not Disturb” mode when you’re not using it. This will prevent any new texts from coming in until you turn off Do Not Disturb, which will help to avoid duplicates.
You can also try using a different messaging app like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. These apps usually have better options for managing how your messages are delivered, and they may also have an option to disable duplicates.
Bonus tip: how to delete all of your old text messages at once
If you’re sick of seeing all of your old text messages, there’s an easy way to delete them all at once. Just go to your Settings and tap on the “Storage” option. Then, tap on “Manage Storage” and select “Text Messages.” From here, you can tap on the “Edit” button and then choose “Delete All.”
Deleting all of your old text messages can free up a lot of space on your device, and it can also help to prevent duplicate messages from being sent in the future. So if you’re tired of seeing the same old texts over and over again, give this method a try.
