Sending videos through text messages on Android is a convenient way to share memorable moments with your friends and family. With just a few simple steps, you can easily send videos right from your Android device. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of sending a video through text on Android.

Step 1: Open the Messaging App

First, open the messaging app on your Android device. This could be the default messaging app or any other third-party messaging app that you prefer to use.

Step 2: Create a New Message

To send a video, you need to create a new message. Look for the “Compose” button or icon within the messaging app and tap on it to start a new message.

Step 3: Add Recipient

In the recipient field, enter the phone number or select the contact to whom you want to send the video. You can also choose multiple recipients if needed.

Step 4: Attach Video

To attach a video, look for the attachment icon in the messaging app’s interface. This icon is usually represented by a paperclip or an image of a camera. Tap on it to open the attachment options menu.

  • Bold Text: Look for an icon with “B” or “Bold” text and tap on it.
  • Underlined Text: Look for an icon with “U” or “Underline” text and tap on it.

In case you don’t see any such icons, don’t worry! The options might be available in another menu accessed by tapping on three dots or lines depending on your messaging app’s design.

Step 5: Select Video

From the attachment options menu, select “Gallery” or “Videos” to access your device’s gallery or video library. Navigate through your folders and albums to find the video you want to send. Once you’ve found it, tap on it to select it.

Step 6: Send Video

After selecting the video, you’ll be taken back to the messaging app’s composition interface. Here, you can add a caption or a message to accompany the video if you wish.

Finally, when you’re ready to send the video, look for the send button within the messaging app’s interface. This button is usually represented by an arrow pointing upwards. Tap on it to send your message along with the attached video.

Congratulations! You have successfully sent a video through text on your Android device. Now, sit back and wait for your recipient to enjoy the shared video!
