Your Phone app should mark the SMS as Read in our phone after opening it in Your Phone app.


Your Phone app should mark the SMS as Read in our phone after opening it in Your Phone app. but currently it doesn't. when i open received text messages in my Your Phone app on Windows 10 and then after that go to my Android 9 phone and open the messages app, the received SMSs are Not read and i have to manually open and close them one by one to mark them as read.

@HotCakeX I was really surprised to see this and other basic functionality missing. Your Phone app as it stands is a glorified bluetooth headset. You can't mark messages as read, you can't delete messages, you can't even search messages. We're lucky we have whatsapp and whatsapp web...
