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.

I REALLY like the aesthetics on this app! The customization without over complication is perfect! I wish it allowed me to use a background image, and I wish it had broadcast text option but otherwise its great. 1 star because I've only had the app 1 day and it keeps giving me a "can't get SMS" notification. There is no explanation. I have no idea if I'm not receiving messages. Also took 3 tries to send an image earlier.

As your mobile carrier transits all text messages this is likely an interim carrier issue, especially as you have used the app happily previously. Definitely not release related. We are happy to help you figure out the cause if you can please reach out to help@textra.me. Thanks Kate.

I've been using this app for many years now, and I really do enjoy it (obviously). However, I can only give it 4☆ for one main reason: when I block a number/email (usually spam) and haven't opened the message, I still get a notification for the unread message. It's really annoying. I feel like if I go through the process of blacklisting a contact, any unread messages by them should automatically be marked as read so as to not trigger the notifications. Otherwise, I ♡ this app. It's my default.

an important feature for me is that you can export an entire conversation to email so it can be saved, shared, and/or printed. Very helpful for documentation. Otherwise I would have to copy and share each comment in a conversation one by one. Textra is extremely useful and is well vetted by reviews as safe and responsibly maintained which is of huge importance to me as well. The free version has a low key top header for simple ads that you can easily move your screen down to hide.
