SMS messages have been with us for a long, long time. Those of you who used cellphones know what it feels like to be limited to 160 characters in a single SMS message, to pay way too much to send only one text message, and to spend way too much time to type that message. Those days are behind us, we not only have unbelievably cheap SMS packages available to us, but also have smartphones with full QWERTY keyboards to type on, which makes the whole experience x times better.
That being said, SMS apps are a dime a dozen in the Google Play Store, and even despite the fact we have all sorts of non-SMS messaging apps available to us, some people still enjoy sending SMS messages. Well, there’s plenty of choices out there, as I’ve already mentioned, and Textra SMS app is definitely on of the best ones out there. This app has been available in the Google Play Store for quite some time now, and has been improved over time, significantly. The app runs smooth, looks great and offers tons of customization options. Well, the app just got a little bit better with the latest update. The developer is now rolling out the version 3.13 update for this app, an update which is all about emoji basically. The app now provides all the latest (1600+) emojis, and they’re available on older devices as well (KitKat and Lollipop). The update also includes ‘skin tone’ emojis too, for diversity purposes, and the ‘Emoji One’ style has also been added by the company. That’s not all though, all the Twitter style emojis are now supported as well (1600+), and the image ‘Save’ option has also been introduced by the company. You can access this options by clicking the side of a picture bubble. On top of all this, the developer has also fixed some bugs within the app.
This update is rolling out in the Google Play Store as we speak, and if it hasn’t reached you yet, it will soon, so just be patient. That’s pretty much it, Textra just got a little bit better, especially if you like using Emojis.
