Android, Tutorials

Have you ever received a text message on your Android device that you wanted to share with someone else? Whether it’s a funny joke, an important piece of information, or simply something worth sharing, forwarding a text message can be a useful feature. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to forward a text message on Android.

Step 1: Open the Messaging App

To begin, locate and open the messaging app on your Android device. This app is usually represented by an icon with two speech bubbles.

Step 2: Select the Text Message

Once you have opened the messaging app, navigate to the conversation containing the text message you want to forward. Tap and hold on the specific message until a menu appears.


If you want to forward multiple messages at once, tap and hold on one message to activate the selection mode. From there, you can select multiple messages by tapping on them individually.

Step 3: Choose Forward

After selecting the desired text message(s), locate and tap on the “Forward” option from the menu that appears. This will open a new conversation window.

Step 4: Enter Recipient

In the new conversation window, you will see a field where you can enter the recipient’s name or phone number. Start typing their name or select them from your contacts list.


If you are forwarding multiple messages, they will appear as separate entries in the new conversation window.

Step 5: Add Context (Optional)

If desired, you can add some context before forwarding the text message(s). This can be helpful for providing additional information or setting the tone for the forwarded message. Simply tap on the text input field and type your desired context.

Step 6: Send the Forwarded Message

Once you have entered the recipient and any additional context, tap on the send button to forward the text message(s). The forwarded message(s) will now be sent to the selected recipient.


If you have multiple recipients, each recipient will receive a separate copy of the forwarded message(s).

Congratulations! You have successfully forwarded a text message on Android. Now you can easily share important or interesting messages with others.

Remember, forwarding a text message can be a useful feature, but it’s important to respect privacy and obtain consent before sharing someone else’s messages. Use this feature responsibly and enjoy sharing information with others!
