The new google app for SMS/MMS doesn't seem to work well with the Connect chrome extension. While you can send messages, they often take a very long time to show up on the extension window and notifications are never passed or cleared between devices. Previously (with system default sms/mms messenger) the notifications on my phone would clear if I read a message on my computer, and vice versa. Now, the notifications never clear on my phone and every message increases the notification counter on the chrome extension, even if I read the message on my phone (previously this was not the case). Please look into this as I really enjoy using Connect as well as the new Google Messenger, but they play so poorly together.
