Babel not working? Try this.
-Disable Receive texts to this phone on the GV website. This sends a copy from GV to your SMS provider.
-Uninstall both GV and Babel.
-Install GV and set messages to go through GV in the settings. NOT via messaging app!
-Install Babel with permissions:
- rw - r -- r --
-Reboot, do NOT fix permissions but you may want to clear caches for no reason but to waste your time?
NOTES: If you fix permissions, or have a script set to do this, you will lose Babel. This is from my experience, it will reset the Group permission to 'root' but you need it set to 'system.' Also you may get a permission prompt, you may not. I personally did, but made the error of fixing permissions and had to reinstall. No prompt second run.
-You should see Babel in your app drawer, execute it AFTER you've enabled Babel under your Accessibility options in the system settings. Select your account.
You will receive duplicate notifications... Patch pending from +Koushik Dutta
