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.

Pretty good app with convenient features. One thing that really irks me is that you can't mark an individual thread/conversation as "read" so that the notification counter on the app badge goes away. And when I "mark all as read" it often will leave some conversations still showing 1 or 2 unread messages. I'd really like to see a "cleanup tool" that you can run manually or on a recurring basis that will put all junk like 2 Factor Auth codes in a list for you to quickly delete.

A lot of care clearly goes into the development of this app and its features. I've been using it for years with little to no issue. It's feature rich yet simple. A little confused by the new app icon. It looks quite dated and odd (I only see it in the task changer). Update: why did they change the process of adding photos to a text? It was great before, several extra unnecessary steps added now. Also, the lack of the theming is making this app a little outdated looking now anyway.
