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.

The customizable feature on Textra is fun. I downloaded Textra when my regular messaging app quit working properly. I do have a problem with it, though. It doesn't go over the phone lines and I don't always have access to the Internet, like on a road trip or even when the power goes out. I had one other issue, but they texted me back immediately and helped me with it! That was awesome. Yay!

Kindly email help@textra.me for help on the above. Meanwhile, Textra SMS supports tapback reaction. Just tap (not long hold) a received message bubble, tap the emoji icon and choose the reaction to send. Easy! Thanks Christy.

Great app. One thing I wish it could do was improve its search feature. Like being able to search for keywords in texts sent by a single contact (instead of only being able to search for keywords across all contacts). Or being able to search for texts sent between certain dates/times. Also, if there could be a way to pin the "Keep" text thread to the top of the list of threads, so it'salways available for quick access/reference. Thanks!

To search a word (or words) for a specific contact, just type in the intended contact name and the relevant word (or words) in the search field. Meanwhile, please long hold KEEP and tap on the pin icon on the top to pin it. Please email help@textra.me for any further assistance if needed, thanks Korey.

I love this app! It allows me to delay send for up to 8 seconds which comes in handy for all of the spelling miscues that happen. It allows customization so the text interface looks, acts, and sounds exactly the way that I want it to look. Also, the customer support team is top notch (as I recently discovered when I had a small issue with my phone; Mandy, you're the BEST!)!! I recommend this app to everyone that will listen!
