I use Republic Anywhere for text messages (both on my phone and on a couple of computers).
I’ve noticed recently that occasionally I’ll get a text message that triggers no notification on the phone until I happen to open Anywhere on the phone. At that point I can see the text show up: i.e. the previous message preview is visible in the message history list and I can see the new message replace it. The new message will be timestamped correctly (e.g. one came in tonight timestamped 30 minutes prior to when it arrived on the phone). The messages also show up with the correct timestamps in my call + message records on the Republic website when I log into my account and view the history.
I have had this happen when Anywhere is open on a computer (and not focused) and when it’s not open. (I understand the phone notification could be suppressed if I actually read the message on a computer before it gets to the phone, but that’s not what’s happening here.)
My first inclination is this could be related to battery optimization/Doze but I have confirmed battery optimization is turned off for Anywhere and this seems to be a relatively recent development; I don’t recall it happening prior to perhaps the last couple months and it seems to have gotten worse recently with multiple occurrences this weekend, one in particular with a 3 hour delay when I know I was using my phone frequently with a network connection (both wifi and cell) during the delay window.
Has anyone else seen this type of issue and resolved it?
