    On updating recyclerview try to run this code : Runnable() {
        public void run() {
            // Call smooth scroll  

    I use the following code so that the scroll is automatic until the last position:


    I implement to add a new item to the list.

    Try the bellow method for auto scroll to your particular position.

    adapter = new DeliveriesDateRecycleAdapter(getActivity(),sampleDatedate, position);

    Note : position – the position of the list that you want to show.

    Have you tried RecyclerView.srollTo(int x, int y)?

    Edit: Try RecyclerView.scrollTo(0, 0) directly after you have send or received the last message.
