mysms is now available in France

Posted in mysms news by mysms

During the last year we’ve received these three questions from French users pretty often:


“mysms sounds amazing, why can’t I download it here in France?”

“I don’t have a contract with B&YOU, is there any way I can still use the app?!”

“You added many new features for mysms that are not yet supported by SMS & YOU, when will these features become available?”


Now we have the answer to all of these questions. During the last year, mysms was sponsored by B&YOU and only available to an exclusive user group. Starting today mysms is available to all French users, no matter which network you are in. You can invite any of your contacts to join mysms and, what’s more, all mysms applications support French language, so mysms will immediately feel like home to you 🙂
