Are you looking to copy a text message conversation on your Android device? Whether it’s for backup purposes or simply to share it with someone else, copying a text message conversation can be useful in various situations. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of copying a text message conversation on Android.

Step 1: Open the Messaging App

To begin, locate and open the messaging app on your Android device. The exact name and icon may vary depending on the manufacturer of your device, but it is usually labeled as “Messages” or “Messaging”.

Step 2: Select the Conversation

Once you have opened the messaging app, locate and select the conversation that you want to copy. This can be a one-on-one conversation or a group conversation.


If you have a long list of conversations, you can use the search bar at the top of the screen to quickly find the specific conversation you are looking for.

Step 3: Access Options Menu

After selecting the desired conversation, access the options menu by tapping on the three-dot icon located either at the top-right or bottom-right corner of your screen. This will open a dropdown menu with various options.

Step 4: Choose “Copy Conversation”

In the options menu, look for an option that says “Copy Conversation” or something similar. Tap on this option to initiate the copying process.


If you do not see this option in your messaging app’s options menu, it is possible that your device’s messaging app does not support this feature. In such cases, consider using a third-party messaging app from the Google Play Store that offers this functionality.

Step 5: Confirm and Copy

After selecting the “Copy Conversation” option, a confirmation message may appear asking for your confirmation to copy the conversation. Tap on “Copy” or “OK” to proceed.

Step 6: Paste the Conversation

Now that you have successfully copied the text message conversation, you can paste it wherever you want. This could be in a notes app, an email, a messaging app, or any other application that allows text input.


To paste the copied conversation, tap and hold on the text input field of your desired application until a menu appears. Then select the “Paste” option from this menu to insert the copied conversation.

Congratulations! You have now learned how to copy a text message conversation on Android. Remember, this feature may not be available in all messaging apps, so consider using third-party apps if you require this functionality frequently.
