Message sync on devices without built-in DIGITS

  • Text or multimedia messages sent from your device using the DIGITS app or the DIGITS website don't show up in the native messaging client.
  • To see the full conversation of sent and received messages in all instances of DIGITS, use the downloadable DIGITS app on your primary phone to send your outgoing messages.
  • See Get DIGITS on a phone or tablet, for a list of devices with built-in DIGITS functionality. To enable message sync on devices with built-in DIGITS, make sure that DIGITS is unlocked and enabled on those devices.
