If you need to adjust the font size for easy reading. All of the Textra’s features come together to create a seamless and enjoyable user experience.

You can schedule messages, make calls, delete texts, or send a reply all with the slide of your finger. You can choose from over 2000+ emojis, voice messages, and GIFS to add some entertainment to your conversations.

There are quick reply pop-ups, and it's easy to access your mobile messages when crafting new texts. If you’ve had enough of talking to anyone, you can add their number to a blacklist.
