    I just upgraded to Marshmallow about 2 weeks ago and now when I receive txt messages they appear where I normally get my txt and Messenger.
    Can someone please help me un-bind these? I do not need 2 notices to clear out and I like keeping these separate.
    Thanks.

    Which one do you WANT to notify you? Your texting app?

    If so, open FB Messenger
    Tap on the white circle with the little blue person in it on the far right (just below the search bar)
    Tap SMS
    Toggle it off.

    That SHOULD fix it.

    Don't tell Google or they'll do a social media outlet to attempt to counter it.
    No wait.

    Worked like a charm, thanks.

    MBMark, maybe Google could come out with something called Google++

    Not the same. Hangouts existed as Gchat and then Google Talk before G+ was ever a thing. :p
