Currently, there’s no way to delete individual messages from the desktop app. When I delete the message on my phone, it doesn’t disappear on the desktop app. This is a problem when your significant other sends you lewd photos and they pop up on your work computer. Oops.
Anywhere 1.1.8 for Mac, Windows, Linux was released on 7/10.
From the Release notes:
Better image composing. Drag and drop an image onto the current conversation. Paste (Ctrl+V or Cmd+V) a copied image onto the current conversation from another app.
“Copy image” right click menu option is now available for MMS media.
“Copy” right click menu option is now available when selecting message text.
Start a one-on-one conversation by clicking on a contact in the “People in this conversation” drop down list.
I’ll mark any posts in this thread as DELIVERED if they suggested any of the above features.
I would like to submit a feature request: to be able to connect more than 1 phone to the Republic Anywhere App on a single computer. If I have two phones that I use for different purposes, I would like to receive texts for both of them in one app. Thank you!

On the Windows program it would be nice if the icon disappeared from the taskbar when minimizing to system tray.

It would be very convenient if the past 30 days of text history were to be downloaded from RW’s server to a new device when activated. I realized this last week when I went through three phones over a few days (first phone died, second was a temporary activation, third was the permanent replacement) and my text history started fresh on phones 2 and 3. It’s tough to carry on a conversation on multiple devices if your phone (newly activated) doesn’t show any messages in the conversation that your computer has the past 30 days of saved.
On a similar topic as the custom color schemes, I would appreciate the ability to change the color of the notification light. The white notification light is used by another app (Slack for me, I believe), and I would like the ability to change it to a unique color not used by any other of my apps so I can tell when I have a text from just the light’s color.

Better “attachment” support would be great. As of now, I see my app only allows sending of images (and possibly videos) and voice, but Google’s default messenger also allows location sending. Ideally, I’d want it to be on-par with Textra’s attachment support, but it would be nice to at least match Google Messenger.

Make it available to use on the republic phone when there is a different (non republic) SIM card present. I am in Europe for a trip and stuck in a local sim card so that I have a phone and internet here. Unfortunately that means I can’t sue republic at all. I was hoping this could solve my problems, but when I install the app it just says that it can’t authenticate and that I should get on a connection, even though I have internet here (both WiFi and 4G, take your pick), just that the republic SIM is not inserted.

How about a Blacklist?
On Android, it would be nice to have Nougat 7.1 feature “app shortcuts” available through a long press on the app icon. See attached screenshots for examples from Google’s Messages and Phone app. Thanks for considering!
P.s. And maybe on the RW app too! Maybe a shortcut to go straight to the data usage page, or Republic help!
