The description of Messaging

This is the stock Android 4.4 (KitKat) Messaging app for SMS and MMS messaging now available for 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) including Android 5.0 (Lollipop) devices as well! This app is only available from Google on Google Play Edition or Nexus devices. We have recompiled the original Google source code to bring the classic functionality and Google design to all Android users who's phones do not come with it.

Most phone manufacturers (Samsung, HTC, LG, etc.) build their own messaging apps with brand specific user interfaces. The Nexus 5 has also removed Messaging and now includes Google Hangouts instead. Installing this app allows all Android 4.1+ owners to use the classic SMS/MMS app from Google.

This re-compiled version is maintained by SoftCoil Development for the benefit of the community. Please report any issues so that we can resolve them quickly. (Note that MMS may not work on your 4.2 device until we have fixed an OS bug. We are working on it though. :-) )


IMPORTANT Note For Moto G and Moto E Users: If you disable the default messaging app that comes with your phone in System -> Apps no other SMS messaging apps will work. You need to leave the messaging app that came with your phone installed and active for other messaging apps to work or you will experience errors sending and receiving messages.

We're always excited to hear from our users. Please send us feedback through our websites if you run into any issues so we can fix them ASAP.

Also, check out our other SMS app (Chattr) for free messaging with your friends!
