my mom recently died and i was hoping that textra could add a feature wherein i can download a whole conversation and just keep a copy of it. i just want to keep the conversation i had with my mom so i can read even after i change to a new phone. thanks.48 votes
Long press the conversation (say Mum) in conversation list. Then dotdotdot (top right) > Share as Email.
Highlight and copy selected text instead of whole message29 votes
Tap a bubble, tap COPY, move the selectors and tap COPY again.
user can copy whole message on message selection on long press.
there is no way to copy selected part of the message, including text, links, numbers...
Selection mode so user can select and copy only particular, selected part of the message.
if long press is taken under url or a number, user should be able to copy it as well.11 votes

Please make the Textra application feasible for dual SIM phones.34 votes
Added in v3.23 of Textra out next week. If you cannot wait please email email@example.com.
Dual SIM is only supported in Firmware 5.1 and above natively by Android.
It would be great to have an indicator for draft messages (in the general list with all the threads) for those that have not been sent yet.
This feature already exist in MMS/SMS and other apps.
Something like a little "draft" in red or an icon to easily spot which thread has a draft message.

Group conversations could be renamed. you could have things like "work friends" with Jim, Ashley, and Carol1,408 votes
Implemented in release 3.28 rolling out now (takes a few days to rollout fully).
I know Textra "intentionally" disabled sounds while a conversation is open, but I would like this to be an actual option. I'm not always staring at the screen and I don't always exit from the app/convo. Unless I'm watching the phone I can never tell when someone responds (while convo is open). Just make it an OPTION!1,373 votes
Added in Release 3.19 of Textra out first week in May. Email us for an advance copy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you cannot wait ;-)
Please allow SwiftKey keyboard to work properly with textra. Textra keeps freezing and not responding at all. I didn't have this problem until the most recent update on textra. It happens so frequent now.I really enjoy textra but it's starting to be be a pain in the butt. Hopefully I don't have to start looking elsewhere. Thank you52 votes
Fixed in 3.2 out now.
The default Samsung messaging app has a great feature that allows you to check a box to send messages to multiple people as a group text or as individual messages. This is extremely convenient if you want to text multiple individuals, but not necessarily want everyone's response visible to each other. Having the option right next to the message field would make it easy to switch between the two modes.407 votes
Available in 3.28 out now.

It would be great if you could have a small counter next to the contact name displaying the total number of messages in the conversation469 votes
Slide right in the conversation list to see the count
Instead of having it in settings to tap to quick reply or tap to open the thread in the app it would be awesome to have an option where you are given two buttons on the notification so you can choose if you want to go to the full app or just quick reply.2,908 votes
Fully configurable notification buttons added in v3.44 out now.
When attaching a video taken outside of textra, automatically compress it to the maximum message size.628 votes
Please add option to see how many messages you have sent between contacts in the main message thread section. I like to delete threads once they start to get up there in numbers just to keep things running smoothly. Other than that i love textra, great app.1,611 votes
Was in release 2.36. Slide right in the conversation list to reveal the message count.
Would like to know if you can add copy and paste from SMS? Love the app but find if I need to copy text or address from messages I have to go back to the messaging app for that functionality. For example if I need to copy a number for an email or something I have to go back to stock.3,984 votes
Rolling out in release v3.25 now. If you cannot wait, please email email@example.com
