I use two lines - one an android phone and one an iphone.  I use google voice most often for texting, but sometimes I receive texts on my carrier number on my android phone.  I thought using IFTTT to notify me on my iphone when I receive texts on my android phone would be perfect, but as best as I can tell, the channel doesnt work.  I am not even sure how it could, as IFTTT does not have or even request notification access.  Does this channel actually work for anyone?  I am talking about the "Android SMS" channel, not "SMS".

Hi James,

Thanks for getting in touch!

Before going into what the potential issue may be, are you having an issue using an IFTTT recipe with an Automatic device? From the sound of your question, this seems to be an issue with just an IFTTT recipe and this isn't an IFTTT support community :)

Please let us know if this is an issue while using Automatic and we will be more than happy to help! Otherwise, here is a link to IFTTT's support channels.
