About this app

Textra is an alternative to your stock SMS/MMS app (that came preinstalled on your phone). So, whether you're looking for a faster experience, better customization options, more color or just a specific feature (like scheduling a text in the future) you've come to the right place.

Feature rich, notably 180+ material design theme, bubble & app icon colors. Light, dark, black, night & android screen modes, multiple bubble styles, scheduled (future) SMS & MMS, send delay, slide to delete, slide to call, quick snap camera, multi-select picture gallery, quick reply SMS popup, awesome MMS GROUP messaging, quick voice memos, endless GIFs, 21 text sizes, multiple font options, message blocker / blocklisting, pin-to-top, automatic video & picture compression, support for iOS reactions, iOS emojis & heaps more!

Customize your preferred theme & bubble colors, signatures and notifications (icon shape, sound, privacy, reminders, and muting) per conversation as well.

Get all the latest Android, Twitter, JoyPixels & iOS style emojis including diversity (skin tone). Just pick your preferred emoji style and express yourself!

NEW: Added support for Reactions (also known as Tapbacks) received from iOS Apple devices. So, for example instead of seeing an incoming message saying: Loved "See you at 9pm", you'll now see a love heart emoji superimposed on the message you sent. Just like on iOS devices, Facebook Messenger etc. You can also send reactions!

NEW: Copy Partial Text tap a bubble to check out this great new feature that allows you to copy any part of the text in a bubble!

It's pretty special; try it, tell your friends, shout from the treetops, but most of all enjoy it.

Fully compatible with Pushbullet, MightyText, Android Wear and Android Auto (car) for enhanced notifications and quick reply.

All Textra features are free forever. Occasionally you'll see an ad, or you can choose to make a once only in-app purchase to remove ads forever.

Using Textra for years and have always loved it. However, the new way to select pictures is not my favorite. I would prefer that when you tap on a picture it works like before. A long press could bring up the multiple select option instead of the preview. Not sure the preview adds anything. Also it took me a while to even figure out I could select a picture from the preview. I use a dark theme and the little circle barely shows up on the screen. I was quite frustrated.

I've been using Textra for years & have loved it. The easy functionality & abilitty to customize chat threads makes it the first app I download when I upgrade phones & has consistently earned 4-5 stars. HOWEVER, with the latest update & the added steps to attach photos, it's so frustrating to send pics. I use this app for business to send before/after pics to my clients, so for me to have to have additional steps to use a basic function is close to a deal breaker. Please change it back!!

I appreciate your response, I run a business and have to send multiple media files many times a day. And like everyone is saying the the comments "put choosing media back the way it was". There's no need to add a circle to the top right of each picture. Tapping on the like it used to be is much easier. This new thing is very very counterintuitive.
