I've seen this before but, it would be great to have the ability to backup your Textra settings and customization. It's a hassle to have to do that each time.

Regarding previous comment, the best option I found when getting a new phone is taking screenshots of all settings and customizations, including colors, drilling all the way down per setting. hope this helps
I'm getting ready to change phones, and the thought of having to recreate every. single. customization. I've made is extremely depressing. 😔🙁😦😯😟😢 Even if sounds can't be saved due to Android constraints, I've also renamed dozens of conversations, marked favorites, changed individual colors, tweaked the app settings....
Devs obviously don't care and/or pay attention to this request. Maybe if we all start knocking stars off the Play review they'll get the hint?

This is MUCH more important than it sounds. SETTINGS are always lost whenever you move to a new phone. This includes all GROUP TEXT Names, SIGNATURES, which messages are PINNED, COLOR selections not just in general but also for Groups & Individual THREADS, Etc.
>> Huge Pain to recreate all this every time..Numerous other Text apps support Settings Backup.
How can it be 5 Years and nearly ~5000+ VOTES when you count the other duplicate feature requests (way beyond the ~1500 votes under this particular post). And not even 1 response comment from Textra "user voice" support?
>> I'm going to upgrade my phone this July-August and this time (after 3+ Yrs with Textra) might as well switch to another app with #AI etc. The ONLY things keeping me with Textra are the wonderful way DRAFT messages stand out in green (LOVE it 🙂) and having Multiple Signatures that we select via pick list (PERFECT 🎗👌).. But such a hassle to migrate phones and LOSE all that and more each time.
>> Please add this Long-Awaited Textra feature that sooo manynpeople want.
Make it a Gr8 Day :)
Seriously, how has this not been added since 2015 when this was posted?!? It's been 4 years. Still no backup. It's such a PITA to have to redo all my settings on each new device. Ugh.

Three years and still no backup option. With all these new features and customization options, one needs a quick and efficient way to backup and restore their settings. There are many apps that will backup your actual text messages, but what about the settings that many of us spend a lot of time customizing for specific contacts over the months/years? This really should be a priority.
Does anyone know what directories/files you can backup the settings manually?
do the devs even read this? I can't believe such a basic feature is not available. recreating all user settings is a huge task when installing on new devices.

This should be at the number 1 spot in the priority list. Imagine the pain of re-creating everything, every settings. Ugh I just went through all of that last last week and I hope the next time I'll reformat my phone or move to a a new one, it could be as smooth as restoring a backup.
Well, this is official Textra uservoice. Could any1 of u guys please telk us if it's planned or not?? I changed my phone and if I even try to imagibe the PAIN with setting it all up again I would rather look somewhere else. That would be really sad, I LOVE Textra, use it for a few years already!

I want this. Do the Devs read this? If not
..where do I go to ask.

Just transferred all my data to a new phone. Except for Textra. I'm tired of recreating all my settings over and over. I'm out
Ditto. Come on Textra. No brainer. What excuses are there not to have this available??? I'm a Pro user.
Yes, add me to this list. If works be a great addition. I'm a paid user, at it to the paid version, this week get more people to buy it too!
WhatsApp has auto backup, Textra should have it too
well...I'm glad I choose to have ads instead of paying for this app. I need to do a factory reset now and it seems I'm going to lose all my settings. Not sure if it will be my sms app after the restore

It is ridiculous that this awesome app STILL does not have settings backup!!!
Already posted about this on another topic line. It's a huge factor that has been overlooked!
Google can back up the data for free, it's not hard to integrate for developers. Why isn't this the standard??
