Export your entire SMS inbox to access your messages offline

Posted in mysms news by mysms

With mysms your messages are always by your side on all your devices. They are saved in the mysms cloud and available on your smartphone, tablet, desktop or any other web-enabled device. In addition we provide several plugins that serve as an additional storage for your beloved SMS.

Export your SMS & MMS

In addition to the archiving plugins that automatically save texts to your Evernote, Dropbox, Google Drive or Email account, we added an awesome feature:


The SMS export feature allows you to save your entire SMS inbox. With a few clicks all your messages that are saved in the mysms cloud (not only new ones) are sent to your email account in a single .CSV file. This allows you to backup your texts anytime and to manage your texts even when you are offline. It is great way to manage your messages with these plugins as your texts are even available if you delete them from the mysms cloud.


You’ll find the SMS export feature under the same option as the archiving feature in the mysms settings on your Android phone (“SMS archiving”) or in the web app (“Dropbox, GDrive, Evernote, Email”). Go to “SMS Export” at the bottom of the screen. Then enter your email address and confirm this action by clicking “Export & send file”. We’ll send a zipped CSV file to your email account that includes all your SMS & MMS that are saved in the mysms cloud. Attachments are excluded.


Are you a fan of our archiving or export plugins? Do you prefer to backup your texts with an additional service?




Please note that the SMS export feature serves as additional storage for your messages, but it is not possible to restore your messages with this file.

Android 4.4: Text from your computer without using mysms as your default SMS app

Posted in mysms news by mysms

We here at mysms aim to provide you with the most awesome texting experience across all platforms. We believe that mysms is the best choice for all your devices, but we particularly want to provide you with the possibility to text from your computer. Especially for those of you who spend a lot of time in the office in front of a desktop screen, it is simply much more convenient. Therefore, we’ve got great news for our users who enjoy texting from the computer with mysms, but prefer another default SMS app on their phone.

Use mysms to text on any device

Use mysms to text on any device

With the release of Android 4.4 (KitKat) Google introduced a concept that allows only one app to be set as default SMS app. That means only your selected app can fully manage the SMS database on your phone. This is a change of the operating system we cannot influence.


Until now it was hardly possible to use our service on the desktop or tablet, if mysms was not actively used on the phone (under Android 4.4). With this update we’ve implemented a solution for Android KitKat users who prefer another SMS app on the smartphone. In this case texting on your computer with mysms works flawlessly again by using the latest of the mysms app for Android phone! You can download the update from the Google Play Store:

Download mysms for Android phone

Download the update


Due to the change of Google’s Android 4.4 we’re only able offer our entire feature set if mysms is used as default SMS app. Please keep the different functionality in mind, which is shown in the following list:


mysms as default:
mysms as default:
Receive SMS & MMS on any device
Send texts & MMS on any device
(MMS sent from your desktop/tablet will not be shown on phone)
Send & receive mysms friends messages X
Delete messages
(messages deleted on one device are also deleted on other devices)
(messages deleted on your desktop/tablet are still visible on your phone)
Mark messages as read on all devices
(messages read on one device are also marked as read on other devices)
(messages stay marked as new/unread on your phone)
Restore your message on a new device (e.g. if you get a new phone) X


You know that we honestly appreciate your feedback. We would be glad, if you share your experience with the update with us. Also, feel free to tell us why you don’t want to use mysms as your default texting app. What should we improve in your opinion?
