What is this all about?

During the time of our partnership only B&YOU customers and existing mysms users have the exclusive right to use our service in France. The co-branded applications of mysms are named SMS & YOU, come with a brand new design and are available for free. SMS & YOU will fully replace our actual service in all French stores.


Why have we decided to cooperate with B&YOU?

Bouygues Telecom is a global provider of mobile communications, landlines, TV, internet and cloud services. With their business division B&YOU the company serves more than 1 million customers. B&YOU shares our passion for online and loves to explore new innovative features as much as we do. As B&YOU was on a lookout on a customized solution to improve the texting experience of their customers, the partnership with mysms is the perfect match.


mysms becomes SMS & YOU – What does that mean for you?

In the last few months we have been developing a product that comes with a co-branded design and offers synchronized texting for every B&YOU user. B&YOU users can download the phone app from the links mentioned below to register for the service. After the setup and the initial sync messages can be sent and received on a tablet, desktop and via the web.

Existing mysms users need to switch to the new SMS & YOU apps on all devices. You can log in with current mysms account and all messages will also be available in the SMS & YOU apps.

At the moment the SMS & YOU apps are available for the following platforms for free (click on the links for a direct download):

– Android phone

– Android tablet

– Web app

Additionally, SMS & YOU applications for all other platforms will be added within the next few weeks.


If you have any feedback or other requests please let us know in the comments.

We’re very looking forward to the future cooperation with B&YOU and hope that you, all mysms and B&YOU users from France, share our excitement!

Manage your texts faster with swiping gestures

Posted in messaging, mysms news by mysms

With mysms we aim to make your day-to-day communication easy and fast, no matter which device you use. For Android phone we recently launched the following five different swiping actions that will help you to perform the most used mysms features a lot quicker than before.


1) Swipe to the right

If you swipe to the right side on a conversation in the overview, you will notice the option to delete a thread. This can come in very handy if you want to delete conversations fast. No worries, you have to press on the icon before we finally delete your conversation. Like this you won’t erase a conversation by accident.

2) Swipe to the left

You are texting with mysms and decide to call one of your friends. Swipe left in the conversation overview and you can start a call without switching to your phone app.

3) Swipe left on a group conversation

Are you a heavy group user? Sometimes it’s getting difficult to remember who of your friends belong to a particular group. By swiping to the left, all members of a group will pop up and you will be able to add new contacts to the group.

4) Swipe up

If you prefer to keep your mysms inbox slim instead of saving all your messages, this might be the perfect feature for you. Simply swipe up to delete the latest message. This works in individual conversations as well as in the pop up. You can activate this feature in our newly introduced expert settings.

5) Pull down

The quickest way to start a new text is to pull down in the conversation overview. You can immediately enter your contact and start writing your text.

In the next updates we will include an option to de-/activate all swipe gestures in the mysms settings. Are you missing another swipe action that we should include in the releases? We’d love to get your opinion!

mysms now supports Russian language!

Posted in mysms news by mysms

Maybe some of you have noticed it already, since Friday last week our mysms Android phone app is available in Russian. We added this language to our translation center only two weeks ago. Thanks to the fast and great work of our translators Vad Repin, Fil Dunsky and Константин Докучаев, Russian is now available to the whole mysms community.

mysms supports Russian language

If you want to use Russian as your mysms language it’s very easy to do so. Simply set “Russian” as your phone language and mysms will automatically be displayed in Russian on your Android phone.

mysms is now available in nine different languages – Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish and Swedish and we aim to support many more :). If you want to translate mysms yourself to another language, please contact us via email or directly submit your translations to our translation center.

We proudly present mysms mirror: To text from one phone to another

Posted in mysms news by mysms

You are using two smartphones, but you hate to carry both devices with you all the time? Today we have a great announcement to make! We’re releasing a new app: mysms mirror. This app is an extension of the mysms phone app and will help you to manage the SMS conversations of your two smartphones.

mysms mirror is available for Android phone and iPhone


Many of our users told us they struggle to stay on top of their messages on a daily basis when using multiple phones. If you have a look at our forum, you’ll notice that it is also the most requested feature to use mysms on two different phones (maybe you even belong to the group of voters). With this feedback in mind, we decided to find an easier way to keep track of text messages. The result is an app that concentrates on one main feature – displaying text messages from one phone to another.


mysms mirror allows you to better manage your texts when using two phones. You’ll be able to read and write messages using different phone numbers from one single smartphone. And it’s not only limited to text messages, as we’re going one step further and will add notifications for missed calls in the next version. So no matter if you are using a business and a private phone, or if you just want to save on costs by using different operators – mysms mirror will help you to simplify sending and receiving text messages. You can be sure you won’t miss an important message or call, you will always have the right phone with you.


mysms mirror is available for your Android phone or iPhone. Let’s have a look how to get started:

1) Install mysms on your Android phone or iPhone you want to mirror and create a mysms account. This will be the account that you use to mirror your texts.

2) Install mysms mirror for your Android phone or iPhone to display your messages on your primary phone and log in with your previously created or your existing mysms account.


Stay up to date with mysms mirror, if you use two or more smartphones. For Android we offer a free trial of 30 days ($9.99 for unlimited usage), so start testing right away and let us know what you think about it in the comments!


Update October 9, 2014: Starting today we are introducing a new Premium model that will be different to the Premium that we presented in this post. mysms mirror is one of many features that is included in the newly introduced Premium offer. Find more information about mysms Premium here.

Get notified when your mysms friend is typing a message

Posted in messaging, mysms news by mysms

Ever wanted to know if the recipient of your message is already composing a reply? This is now possible with our latest integrated typing notification. Last week we’ve released this feature for Android tablet and iPad and now we’re expanding typing notifications also to Android phone, iPhone and the web.


How can I see that my contact is typing?

If you have enabled contact pics you’ll see three animated dots at the bottom of your photo, while the person on the other end is typing. It does matter if you are in the message overview or directly in a conversation, you will recognize that your contact is composing a message.


Do I get typing notifications for all my messages?

Typing notifications are only shown for mysms friends and they are displayed for single and group messages. For texts via your mobile carrier this feature is not available.


We are excited to offer you this feature and we hope it makes your mysms experience a lot richer. If you haven’t done so, get the update now and let us know if you like it!
