Textra SMS Customer Insights

1. Kind of a bummer.I love Textra and have been using it for the last couple years, but lately I've been having issues where some messages are not coming through, especially in group chats.

2. Also, to search a particular thread from someone rather than all messages would be nice too.I've been using Textra for many years.

3. Last, if your stuck with selecting one image at a time, it would be easier if the folder didn't close after selecting the first image.Update: Appears to have been borne from some sort of conflict with the Pixel Pro 7 T-Mobile update.

4. Will update the review when it's fixed.i have a dual Sim phone and would have to change my primary sms app in order to receive mms messages from the secondary sim.

5. it also integrates with bitmoji just fine.Been using Textra for years and years and loved it.

6. I'd like to see the ability to search for any links sent or received rather than having to scroll through a thread hoping you come across one.

7. However, one feature I miss that the app built into my phone has is that you can search through individual messages.

8. I switched from Google Messages and the experience has been flawless.

9. It woukd be great if a future upgrade included the agility ,&to select a default image location or move folder icons into your preferred order.

10. If I could search individual messages as well as all of them at once, I would be thrilled!I'm really liking this texting app.

11. It has seamlessly transitioned across multiple phones I've owned throughout the years, and the best part is that I don't have to go through the hassle of familiarizing myself with a new interface every time.

Steps to Troubleshoot & Fix Textra SMS Issues

1. Fix Textra SMS Not Working/Crashes/Errors/Unresponsive & Black/White screen:

  1. Restart Textra SMS: Restarting the app will resolve most errors.
  2. Update the Textra SMS App. Here is how:

    2. On iPhone, goto AppStore » Your profile » Available Updates » Check for Textra SMS » click "UPDATE".
  3. Clear Textra SMS app cache: Clearing cached data will force your app to retrieve the latest data directly from Textra SMS servers.
    1. On Android, goto Settings » Apps » Select "Textra SMS" » click Storage » click "Clear Cache".
  4. Check Textra SMS app permissions. If any of these permissions required to use your device's features are disenabled, Textra SMS might not work.

  3. Enable background data: When Background data is turned off, Textra SMS may not be able to connect to the Internet when running in the background.

However, I would sure appreciate a 'bin' ... a folder where misdeleated conversations can be saved. Really, I have lost forever more stuff jus by electing the wrong string for summary execution.
    Can you help out here?

  • I love Textra however one constant issue since I've had it( which is awhile) is it won't let me send messages 50% of the time to groups. I constantly get the 3 red dots showing it won't go, then I get the '!!' message saying failed to send. It's annoying. My daughter had a group of ten she sends messages to and has no issues.

  • Lately I've sent a text messages but it is not being received. The app shows it's sent. Sometimes the message is received 24 hours later but most of the time it's not received at all. I've had Textra for a long the and enjoy the confidence of knowing my messages are being received. I can't keep the app if this continues. My business partners depend on me. I have a Google Pixel 6 pro. I hope this can be corrected. Thank you.

  • Hi, I use textra and I have been very happy with it. However, when I get a new text, a small green circle with a number in it appears. Generally this goes away once the text has been opened. However, for some texts/ people, the notification circles do not disappear and I cannot figure out a way to get rid of them. The notification stays no matter how many times I open the test.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
