Home » News » Your Phone app shows duplicate sent messages on Windows 10

Your Phone is an app that lets you link your Android phone with your Windows 10 PC.

The app allows you to reply to text messages, get instant access to all of your phone’s content, and receive and manage notifications.

Despite being very useful, some users are getting more and more annoyed by certain bugs that affect the Your Phone app. Here’s how one user describes the issue:

My Your Phone app is duplicating messages sent, sporadically. This has been happening the past few days. Windows and Your Phone apps have been updated. The duplicates are appearing in my Android texting app (Textra) as well. I have used Pulse, Google Messages, and Samsung Flow previously w/o this occurring.

It seems like the bug appeared on Windows 10 PRO version 1903, but it may not be specific to this version.

What can I do if Your Phone app shows duplicate sent messages on Windows 10?

If you encountered the same problem, the first thing that you should do is to update Windows and your drivers. If the issue persists, reset the Your Phone app.

If you don’t know how to do that, follow the steps:

  1. Click on Start and select Settings.
  2. Click on Apps.
  3. Under Apps and Features, search for Your Phone app.
  4. Click on Your Phone and select Advanced Options.
  5. Under Apps Permission, make sure Background Apps is enabled.
  6. Scroll down and click on the Reset button.
  7. When asked for confirmation, click Yes.
