It is unarguable that over the cause of the last fifteen years, phone call is no longer the means used by most people use for communication. Text messages have become the replacement. If you are going to text as much as you do, then you should use the best apps to do so. Discussed below are the apps suggested you use for texting.
The Best App For General People: Android Messages
Android Messages is created by Google. It is their SMS apps vision for Android. It is also the stock option on Pixel and Nexus devices. The up side is that it is compatible with all phones, it is completely free and you can get it in the Play Store. The reason why this app is a great choice is because of it's clean and simple interface- it works pretty good. It has a lot of great built-in features that perform various tasks. Really, it is nothing short of what is expected from Google applications. It also supports Multimedia messaging(MMS) like any other good SMS app. It has features that allows people to attach certain things to their messages like
Pictures and GIFs
Conversations can also be customized by assigning contacts specific colours. If you do not want to waste time on setting up contacts one by one it will automatically be done for you. You start to identity contacts with their colour after a while. You can take a look at you phone and tell the person who sent the text message from just seeing the color. It a very useful simple feature. In short, I recommend Android Messages for you if you need a good text messaging app that is simple and works fine.
Textra is recommended for those in search of all the whistles and bells from their SMS client. Even though the app is packed with so many killer features, it does not feel bloated at all.
