Hangouts Bug: Recipients Getting My SMS Messages Twice!

Not sure if this a known issue or not but I've been using Hangouts as my default SMS Messaging app and intermittently, when I send an SMS to my contacts, they're reporting that they're getting them twice. I've tested it out my texting myself and got the same problem. It's intermittent though as sometimes it'll just send one SMS. Hangouts is the only Messaging app that's installed. The recipients I'm sending to are using non Android devices (iPhones & Windows Phones).

I then downloaded another SMS app and switched over to that to find out if Hangouts is really the culprit and so far no one has reported that they've had 2 SMS messages from me. I've even text myself and got the SMS once. For now I've disabled Hangouts completely.

I've had the same issue as well. I also receive two of the same SMS from my contacts. I'm not sure if its on T-Mobile's end though.

I have T-Mobile and I do get multiple SMS as well as some of my MMS don't even come through. It says that it has 'an error in downloading'. Eh

I have straight talk AT&T Sim card but don't get the double SMS issue. I can't download MMS though.

Are your APN's correct? You aren't trying to download them on Wi-Fi, right? If so, that doesn't work.

Anyway, double message sending/receiving is almost always a network issue.

APN is correct, I've tried downloading MMS over WiFi and mobile and neither work. A lot of people have this problem on straight talk. Seems like only solution is buying a new Sim card and transferring the number.

I'm on the Three UK network and I got them to send me another Simm card already but still got the same issue.

I've been texting all day and so far no one has reported getting double texts from me.
