Printing messages from an Android device can be a useful feature, especially if you need physical copies of important conversations or want to keep a hard copy for your records. In this tutorial, we will explore different methods to print messages from your Android device and discuss the steps involved. So let’s get started!

Method 1: Taking Screenshots and Printing
Taking screenshots is a simple yet effective way to capture messages on your Android device. Here’s how you can do it:

Step 1: Open the messaging app on your Android device and navigate to the conversation you want to print.

Step 2: Press the combination of buttons that takes a screenshot on your specific device model. Usually, it involves pressing the power button and volume down button simultaneously.

Step 3: Once you have taken the screenshot, open the Photos app on your Android device.

Step 4: Locate the screenshot you just captured in the Photos app. It should be saved in the Screenshots album or folder.

Step 5: With the screenshot open, tap on the three dots or options icon usually found at the top right corner of the screen.

Step 6: From the available options, select “Print” or “Print Photo” depending on your device’s settings.

Note:

If you don’t see a “Print” option, make sure your Android device is connected to a printer that supports wireless printing or has printing capabilities through USB connection.

Method 2: Using Third-Party Apps
Another way to print messages from your Android device is by using third-party apps specifically designed for this purpose. Here’s how you can do it:

Step 1: Open Google Play Store on your Android device and search for “SMS Print” or “Message Print.”

Step 2: From the search results, choose a reliable app that has good user ratings and reviews.

Step 3: Install the selected app on your Android device and grant the necessary permissions it requests.

Step 4: Open the newly installed app and follow the on-screen instructions to connect it to your messaging app.

Step 5: Once connected, select the conversation or messages you want to print.

Step 6: Tap on the print icon within the app, usually represented by a printer symbol.

Note:


Ensure that your Android device is connected to a printer either wirelessly or through USB connection for this method to work effectively.

Method 3: Emailing Messages and Printing


If you prefer email as a medium for printing messages, this method might be suitable for you. Here’s how you can do it:

Step 1: Open the messaging app on your Android device and navigate to the conversation containing the messages you want to print.

Step 2: Tap and hold on a specific message until a menu appears with various options. Select “Forward” or “Share” depending on your messaging app’s interface.

Step 3: In the recipient field, enter your email address or any other email address where you want to receive these messages.

Step 4: Tap on the send button or icon. The selected messages will be sent as an email attachment to the specified email address.

Step 5: Access your email account from a computer or any other device with internet access.

Note:


Make sure to check your spam folder if you don’t receive the email in your inbox.

Step 6: Open the received email and download the attached message file to your computer or device.

Step 7: Once downloaded, open the message file using a text editor or word processor.

Step 8: With the message file open, navigate to the print option within your text editor or word processor and select it to print a hard copy of your messages.
