    Hello everyone,

    Recently, I've been receiving two message notifications for every message that comes in. The usual way is to see a preview of the message at the top of the screen as a pop-up.

    But, I also receive a "X sent a new message" generic notification that comes in right before or right after the usual way to see messages. I'd like to make this one go away, as it often blocks me from being able to see the pop-up version of the message text. But, I am unsure what to do. I've messed with general notification settings and the settings in both the Messenger app and the Messages app where the problem is occurring. Various attempts at fixes do not produce a result.

    This is happening on a Galaxy J7 Sky Pro running Android 6.0.1, if that helps.

    Thank you for your time.

    You can try clearing the cache on your messaging app.

    If you have already checked all the notification settings inside the app, now check the notification settings on the device itself.

    Did you recently install a third party messaging app to try out like signal or SMS Organizer? Perhaps two separate apps are notifying you.
