Despite the advent of social media platforms and messaging apps, many smartphone owners continue to rely on text messages to stay in touch with friends, family, and coworkers. Textra is one of the best alternatives for messaging apps.
The greatest advantage is represented by the fact that you don’t need to have an active internet connection to send texts, but the classic messaging app offered by the Android OS can seem to be a bit minimalistic as it lacks many interesting features.
Textra is an alternative messaging app that comes with a wealth of excellent features that make the experience of sending and receiving messages considerably better.
Developers placed an important focus on personalization, and there is a high amount of settings that can be tinkered and customized according to your needs. For example, there are more than 180 themes from which the users can choose the one which suits their taste best. Several app icon colors and bubble styles can also be enjoyed and offer the option to create an original look that matches your style.
It is important to keep your eyes safe during those late-night texting sessions, and Textra has you covered with the help of a dedicated night mode that can be configured to become active automatically during a specific interval.
Several other handy features are available. Users can schedule SMS and MMS messages, slide their finger to delete old messages, slide their finger to call the contact, add several images for an MMS, create SMS and MMS groups, send voice messages GIFs, and much more.
The app also offers support for multiple text sizes and the ability to send photos and videos which are compressed without notable quality loss. Those who love to use emojis will enjoy access to more than 2900 emojis that are available across several platforms and apps.
The new Textra 4.24 version
With the Textra 4.24 update, the app can now display more than 3,000 emojis. Bubbles are now wider to make use of the available screen space.
