About this app

TO OUR LOYAL USERS - Due to upcoming changes in Play Store policy, we may soon have to modify our services. We will provide more details soon.

Mei is an upgrade to the SMS/MMS texting app that came with your phone, combining all the best features in messaging with ones you can't find anywhere else.

Made by developers who saw the need for a more complete messaging app and were tired of the same features recycled over and over by other apps. So, we set out to create one that can provide everything users may want and couldn't even dream of, giving users choice in every step, a way to discover others and even earn rewards.

To start, our app is the only one with an optional advanced AI assistant named Mei (pronounced ‘May’) that can give personalized information about your conversations. Imagine Mei as an expert adviser or best friend, who's always there to give only you advice or any tidbit she notices in your conversations.

What's the best way to talk to someone? Does your friend sound a little different today? Does someone you just met seem romantically interested?

Mei can recognize insights and personalities of your contacts as you chat or just from the messages saved in your phone (you don't even have to text through our app first!) The AI is designed to make you better informed, ultimately leading to better conversations and relationships.

Chat for free internationally and securely because we're the first messaging app to offer RCS (the upgrade to SMS sent via internet) that's end-to-end encrypted when messaging other users. Similar to iMessage with its blue and green bubble system, messages fall back to SMS/MMS (green bubble) when chatting with non-users.

Fully customize the app with theme colors and backgrounds. Organize chats into folders and bulk message custom groups. Even import chats from other messaging apps and turn them into SMS.

Discover others via polling and the "Stream" where we can connect you with people, news and products based on your messages. Even earn credits toward your phone bill by using the app with our micro-transactions system.

Compatible with MightyText, Pushbullet and mySMS for desktop and web access (our own desktop version coming soon). Mei syncs with any Android smartwatch, watch or wearable.

Key AI Features:
- AI assistant can be turned on or off freely
- Gives you personalized advice on how to better communicate
- Understands personality and demographic differences
- Can tell relationship intent such as romantic or friendly (even reveal secret feelings embedded in the messages)
- Detect changes in behavior and mood

Unique Non-AI Features:
- Conversations automatically organized into folders (inc. spam)
- Create custom folders and labels
- Import conversations from WhatsApp and Line
- Earn credits for interacting with Mei, ads and participating in anonymous polling

Other Key Features:
- Fully customizable, including dark mode and monochrome theme
- Schedule messages or cancel them before they send
- Supports dual sim
- Audio / Voice messages
- Mesh messaging may be coming soon

When Messaging Other Mei Users…
- Rich Communication Service (RCS) chat
- End-to-end encryption
- Message internationally for free
- Disappearing messages, deleted after they’re read
- Expiring messages, deleted after a set time

Our two apps, Mei and Messages Improved, are clones sharing many of the same features. Messages Improved has more of a commercial focus, where we experiment with ads and connecting users with products and services they want. It allows Mei to maintain its focus on personal relationships and exchanging opinions.

It's not a bad app. I like that I can change the color but it has some issues. For no reason it will just stop notifying me or making notifications alert sounds. It will show at top but that means I have to constantly look at my phone. I uninstalled, then re, notification alerts came back, but only lasted 2 days.. Next, I cannot schedule a message. I really hate that because I use that feature A LOT as reminders and unfortunately, this doesn't have it. Over the last couple of days it had all of a sudden started freezing a lot. Sending MMS messages, it does not show on my end that the pictures or screen shots went through. It also will have pictures sent me, just disappear. I have to go out, come back in, I see them, but then I write a message and the pictures are gone again. As for the AI, LOVE IT!! Right on the money about personality matches I have with dozens and dozens of people I talk to.. That part, knows what it's doing.. I don't know what the credits are for either.

Thank you for your review - we are happy you enjoy the AI and will bring your notification issues to our developers. We created the credit system to allow you to benefit from your data, rewarding you when you share data and information. The AI will continue to become smarter the more it collects data from your text exchanges! -Mei Team

It's a great app. I like the customization, the format, and especially the AI. However, there are some things I would really love to see changed. When you receive more than one message in a row from one person, or in one chat, they'll say "media message" even if the message isn't a photo, and you have to open the app to read the texts rather than just look at your notifications... pretty annoying. Also, when you open the app through a notification it rarely takes you to the correct person.

I like the app. It's a great idea and really like the customization for every contact conversation. My only problem is that I can't tell who sends a message when it's from a group chat. The name of the person who sends the message doesn't show up under their text so I have to go back and forth with my default messaging app to know who texted, but only in a group chat text (a conversation between three or more people at the same time). If that could be fix/added, this will be a solid messaging app 👌. Also, when I get a new message, I don't see the most recent text in my notification bar. It only shows the old texts instead of a new one from the person who texted me.
