If you are an Android user who is looking for a different way of receiving SMS and MMS messages, then Textra is an excellent app to consider.
Textra is an alternative SMS and MMS messaging app that can replace the built in messaging app on your Android device. Textra’s additional customization options are what make it stand out from the standard messaging app.
All Textra features are free to use, however in the free version there are occasional ads. If you want, you can pay a one off fee to remove ads forever.
Yes, in order to use Textra, you need to have Mobile Data ON to send and receive MMS. You can activate this in the Textra Settings > MMS Settings > Activate Mobile Data.
Currently there are no plans to make Textra for iOS devices.
