LG Charge X: no notification of incoming text when part of a group message

I have the standard "messaging" app that came installed on the phone. Works great except when I am the recipient of a group message. As a group recipient, I do not receive an audible notification and on the app icon there is no indication that I have an unread text. 

Once I discover the hidden text, I have to hit "download " to read it whether it is just text or if a picture  is included.

Otherwise, notifications for me as a single recipient  work fine and I don't have to "download".

Any help with this would be appreciated.

I also had issues with the messaging app on my LG X Charge. Try Textra, it hasn't failed me yet.

also in the 'settings' section of whatever messaging app, or under system-settings-messages, you can possibly click "automatically/always download messages right away", and possibly disable any size-limits for automatic download.
