Les meilleures applications SMS/MMS on Android in 2021

If the trend is for instant chat applications such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp, we must not forget our good old SMS / MMS which are still very popular. Here are the best Android apps to read, receive and manage your conversations.

On most Android smartphones, the SMS client installed by default is the manufacturer's house application. They are generally poor in options in addition to not being very pretty. If some are more successful, that does not prevent all the same from going to see elsewhere if the grass is not greener there. That's why here we bring you our selection of the best SMS apps for Android in 2019.
