Searching online for free texting apps is a pain in the rear end. There are free apps that work with your existing SMS service and then messenger apps that send messages but not real SMS. This is a problem we hope to rectify with this article.
Text messages are still the most common method of communicating via text. Most people have SMS/MMS support so you don’t need to worry about whether or not they use some other service. However, free texting apps are a little shaky. The most common model is free texts in exchange for viewing advertisements. The second most common include free texting apps that give you monthly limits. They’re still free in either case, though. Here are the best free texting apps for Android! To test, we downloaded every app and made sure that they could actually send text messages first.
Please note, these are apps that send texts as a service, not a replacement for the stock SMS app on your phone like Textra or QKSMS. We have a list for those linked in the widget just below!
