Reading SMS with Texting - Error RECEIVE_SMS permission

I am trying to read the SMS received with Texting.
I receive an error regrading RECEIVE_SMS - an android permission.
I also tried AskForPermission for this event, but I got PermissionDenied. How can I enable my application to read SMSs?

which Android version are you using for your tests?
are you using a companion version, which ends in u? see also

It would really help if you provided a screenshot of your relevant blocks, so we can see what you are trying to do, and where the problem may be.

To get an image of your blocks, right click in the Blocks Editor and select "Download Blocks as Image". You might want to use an image editor to crop etc. if required. Then post it here in the community.

the u versions are not available in Google Play, you have to download it manually
