Hi, can you tell me the device model and Android version? Does the recipient get the message?

We've noticed the issue that Msg sent on AirDroid Web did't appear on the phone and we're looking into this now. Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused :(

Re: [Help & FAQ] AirDroid Web - SMS


I'm assuming because android treats group texts like multimedia messages and I just read that there isn't support for MMS messages on here i guess. It's an instant uninstall for me. It's a shame too because this looks amazing but I can't be missing all my MMS messages and group messages. Lots of people are on here saying that they are "missing" messages or that they dissapeared. Well, I bet that's why. I'd guess that the ones that are missing are the MMS ones. Oh well
