How to Print Text Messages From Your Android Device

With the progress we have made in the communications field, writing letters traditionally is no longer a thing today. From sensitive topics to bank statements, we exchange essential information with other people through SMS, emails, and online chats. Some of us don’t know how it is important to keep messages, particularly those that can get us into trouble in the future.

So, if you are stuck in trouble and need to prove your innocence, SMS messages are a great way to do that. Sadly, updated SMS apps don’t allow you to print messages directly. But, don’t fret! In this post, we are going to teach you how you can print text messages from your Android device.

Method #1: Saving Screenshots and Print

An easy way to print messages is by saving screenshots of your conversation. Here are the proper steps of how to print SMS using this method:

Step 1: Screenshot the conversation you plan to print.

Step 2: Find the file in your device’s gallery.

Step 3: Click the three-button icon that you can find at the top of your screen.

Step 4: Choose Print.

Step 5: You have the option to print the conversation directly or save it as a PDF file.

Step 6: If you prefer to save it, you can transfer it to your computer, laptop, or external hard drive for printing.

Method #2: Use Super Backup and Restore

As we have said earlier, new SMS apps don’t let us print messages directly. But, there are third-party backup and restore applications that let you print directly from your Android device. If you search, you will find several apps for this; however, we have chosen Super Backup and Restore for this section that you can download from the Play Store.

Take note though, this method requires a bit more work but you can be assured that the copies of your messages will be crystal clear.

Step 1: The first step is to download the app from Google Play Store. Search for the app, open it, and provide permission.

Step 2: Click SMS and provide access to your Contacts.

Step 3: Go to Backup Conversations.

Step 4: Open a conversation by tapping it.

Step 5: Once it’s opened, click the print button that you can find at the top.

Step 6: Check the Android print dialogue.

Step 7: Save it as a PDF or choose a printer. If you save it, you can transfer it to your laptop or PC and print for later.
