[NEW FEATURE] Video Messaging Now Available On TextNow For Android!

We're pleased to announce video messaging is now available for Android users on Android 5.1 and above! When using TextNow you can now send a short video message to your contacts, right from the app itself. Here's how:

  1. Open your TextNow app and start a new conversation, or open an already existing conversation. 
  2. Tap on the plus sign (+) in the bottom right-hand corner of the conversation window.
  3. From the pop-up menu, tap on Take Video.
  4. Record a short video using your phone's built-in cameras. (For more information on your particular devices video and camera features, please refer to the documentation that came with your phone.)
  5. Tap OK when you're done recording the video, or Retry to record a new take.

Your video message will be sent to your contact!

Please note that video messages can be no longer than 15 seconds and under 1MB (one megabyte) in size.

Sending video messages is currently only supported on the Android versions of the TextNow app, but iOS and  web users will be able to receive video messages sent from other carriers or apps.

Good morning Dae! 

I'm sorry to hear about that. I've tested it out with a Tribute in the office, and it looks as though it's not supported there either. We're going to investigate this further, and will be in contact with you as soon as I have an update :)

My device that I am using is an IPod Touch and I can’t send any videos, only photos, and there is no button for me to send any videos.

Hey Natalie! I'm afraid that video support is not available on our iOS app just yet!
