  • Speaks the name of the SMS sender as soon as the SMS arrives – D

  • Avoid reading unknown SMS. That is, only read SMS from your contacts – D
  • Remains silent when your ringer volume is silent – no speech for call or SMS

Frequently asked questions

Sometimes, it does not speak the sms received out loud no matter what I do to make it work ?

If notification is not spoken there can be several reasons. This could be because you might have gosms installed on your phone, which stops other apps from receiving the sms notification.

So please follow this,

you need to disable a check box that prevents duplicate notifications in other SMS applications,

So just to reiterate:

In Go SMS (Pro), uncheck disable notifications, and
In the default Messaging app, enabled notifications!

Please note: The latest versions of Go SMS, the “Disable other notifications” is in 2 places (the “Notice” – enable notifications and “Receiving” – disable other notifications). Please make sure to update both locations.

Secondly ,

please put % where you want name to be spoken, for example if you use “call from %” and your friends Joseph is calling you. The app would announce call from Joseph. Similarly an example of text that for sms that you should use is “new message from %” without quotes.

currently your settings are missing that.
