Receiving duplicate messages with onTextMessageReceived

I am getting messages duplicated everytime i receive it.

async receiveMessages() {
    let { uid, myUserID } = this.state;

    var listenerID = "CHAT_SCREEN_LISTENER_ID";
      new CometChat.MessageListener({
        onTextMessageReceived: (textMessage) => {
          console.log("console 0");

          if (
            textMessage.sender.uid == uid &&
            textMessage.receiverType == "user"
          ) {
            if (textMessage.sender.uid != myUserID) {

                (state) => {
                  return state.messages.push(textMessage);
                () => {
                  console.log("console 3");

     componentWillUnmount() {

Can you please guide me how to remove the messageListener everytime when i receive a new message?

Hi @vishal, I’m Paarth from CometChat Customer Support Team.

Hello @vishal,

You can remove a Message Listener by using,


where the listenerID is the id you set while adding the Message Listener.

Ok fixed it. It was only happening in the simulator, not in real device. But i am getting warnings like this:

Warning: Can’t perform a React state update on an unmounted component. This is a no-op, but it indicates a memory leak in your application. To fix, cancel all subscriptions and asynchronous tasks in the componentWillUnmount method.
in CometChatRoom (created by Connect(CometChatRoom))

Can you guide me how to remove all the listeners in the chat window page when unmounted?

Hello @vishal,

It looks like you are using setState() in componentWillUnmount(). Please make sure you do not try to setState() after the component is unmounted.
