Create Broadcast Receiver like this


SMSReceiver smsReceiver = new SMSReceiver();

OnResume method of activty class add this line

        smsReceiver.setSMSListener(this);

Using onSMSReceived(....) method, parse the verification code

for example, if you want to parse verification code from this sms, "201232 is your One Time Password" then we should write this code

   @Override
    public void onSMSReceived(String phone_no, String message) {

// 1st parameter ---> message
// second parameter ---> position of first character of the OTP
// second parameter ---> position of character after last character (includes white space) of OTP

    Strng OTP = smsReceiver.extractCode(message, 0, -999);
    
    }

  @Override
    protected void onPause() {
        super.onPause();
        if (smsReceiver!=null) {
            smsReceiver.unregisterReceiver(this, smsReceiver);
        }

    }
