For some reason the messenger app that came installed with my Moto 4G Play is treating some messages as if they are group messages. Even though these messages were sent from a friend to only me when I receive them on my phone they show as a group message, with myself, the friend, and 1 other phone numbers not contained in my address book all showing. If I try to reply back it sends the message to all those in the group message, including resending the message to me.
I have noticed this effect occurs when different people message me. When someone messages me it may come in as a standard message or the odd group message, with no apparent indication for why some are converted to group messages and other's aren't. The very first text I got was a group message like this, before I installed any apps other then those preinstalled by Amazon.
Has anyone seen this behavior before or know how I can prevent it from happening?
I'm running Android Marshmallow 6.0.1
