Texting has been around since the 90’s and you have likely been doing it for years. Would you believe that there might be a few things about texting that you didn’t already know? Here are three tips for Android users that could make texting better than it already is:

1. Forward a text

Forwarding a text is a great way to reference a different conversation while you are texting.

      • Simply press and hold on the text that you would like to forward.
      • A menu will pop up and you can press “Forward”.
      • Type in the name of the recipient of the forwarded message.
      • Press “Send”.

2. Send an email from text by typing in an e-mail address

Have you ever wanted to include someone in a group text that doesn’t text? A great solution is to include their email address.  You can even send attachments such as photos and documents to email from Android’s default texting app.

      • Type their email address in the “Recipient” field.
      • When you send the text message it will go to their email address.
