    On Android 7 OS there seems to be a change the way blocking works. I got a new pop up message when trying to block a spam sms in Google messages.
    It asks to update settings. to block call and sms. When enabled blocked #s go to voicemail and sms blocks no longer get archived but seem to just get dropped.
    Has anybody else noticed this or found a way to adjust or rollback to previoussettings as I haven't found a way.
    I want to revert back to blocked sms just got archived so they can be checked like a spam folder in email which is the way it used to work

    Welcome to the Forum. You might have to try a different text app, maybe one that keeps blocked texts "archived" like you want. I honestly don't know if there are any that will do that, and work correctly with Android 7, 8, etc. I don't think there is any way to do what you are asking with Android 7 itself or the stock Messages app.
