Moto G (3rd Gen.) Texting Menu Q

#1

What does the 6 mean on the texting menu?

Hi @roberto.w6wqz7

Which “Texting Menu” are you seeing/using?.

#3

When I open texting the following displays within the messaging (what I call) tool bar, See screen capture.

#4

6 unread messages?

#5

No. There were three messages that I had read. If I delete all messages, it still displays 6.

#6

If I remember correctly it is the number of threads you have.

#7

It displays even when there are no messages. The only time it does not display is when I’m in an actual text message. This is not a problem, I an just curious.Thanks.

Try wiping your cache partition. How to Clear the Android System Cache on Motorola and Nexus Phones Running Android 8.0 or Below – Republic Help

If that doesn’t work there’s an app for that. You really should install the updated Messages app. I found it to be cleaner and work better. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.messaging&hl=en

Even if you have no messages you can have threads open.

#10

Even if you have no messages you can have threads open.

I wish I had my old Moto X with me to check, my G5s+ has android messenger as default.

#11

I checked out my G3 prior to responding and wondering what you mean by threads open?

My # indicates the # of contacts I’ve received messages from until message opened.

By open thread, I mean the number of visible contacts on the apps main screen. You can close and delete threads to remove them from view till you receive another text.
