How to Email Text Messages From Android

Sending text messages has become an integral part of our daily communication. Whether it’s for work or personal reasons, being able to email text messages from your Android device can be incredibly convenient. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step-by-step.

Step 1: Choose the Right App

Before you can start emailing your text messages, you will need to find the right app that allows you to do so. There are several apps available on the Google Play Store that offer this functionality, such as SMS Backup+ and SMS to Text. Install one of these apps on your Android device.

Step 2: Configure the App

Once you have installed the app, open it and follow the on-screen instructions to configure it. You may need to grant certain permissions for the app to access your text messages. Make sure to read and understand what permissions are being requested before granting them.


If you have important text messages that you want to keep a backup of, make sure to enable automatic backups within the app’s settings. This will ensure that your text messages are regularly backed up and ready for emailing whenever needed.

Step 3: Select Text Messages

After configuring the app, you will typically be presented with a list of your text message conversations. Select the conversations or individual messages that you want to email by checking the corresponding boxes next to them.

  • Bold Text: Check the boxes next to each conversation or message that you want to include in your email.
  • Underlined Text: Make sure not to select any irrelevant conversations or messages to keep your email focused and concise.

Step 4: Export as Email

Once you have selected the desired text messages, look for the option to export or share them. Depending on the app you are using, this option may be labeled differently. Common labels include “Export,” “Share,” or an email icon.

Tap on the export/share option and choose the email app you want to use to send the text messages. Your Android device will open the selected email app with your text messages attached as a file.


If you want to keep your email organized, consider adding a relevant subject line that describes the content of your text messages. This will make it easier for recipients to understand what the email is about.

Step 5: Compose and Send Email

In the email app, compose your message as you would typically do when sending an email. You can provide additional context or instructions related to the attached text messages here.

  • Bold Text: Clearly state why you are sending these text messages and any actions required from the recipient.
  • Underlined Text: Avoid including any sensitive or confidential information in your email unless necessary.

Double-check all recipients and ensure that everything looks good before clicking on the “Send” button. Congratulations! You have successfully emailed your text messages from your Android device.


The steps provided in this tutorial may vary slightly depending on which app you choose to use for emailing text messages from Android. However, the overall process remains similar across different apps.

By following these simple steps, you can easily send important text messages from your Android device to anyone via email. This can be particularly useful for sharing important information, preserving evidence, or simply keeping a record of your conversations. Make sure to choose a reliable app and always exercise caution while handling sensitive information.
