I have had 2 issues with text messaging recently. I have a Google Pixel 4 phone.
When my wife texts me a photo, it creates a new message thread from her. And it makes it a group chat between me, her, and my phone number. If she just sends words, it comes through to our regular message thread.
In group messages recently, every time I send a response, I get the reply back. And when I look at the group details, my number is showing up as one of the contacts, which is never used to do.
Any help would be appreciated.
