All android smartphones have one thing in common: the default messaging pre-installed app. And if you have recently bought your smartphone, you might have the Google messages up, and even with the latest Google policies, no app on the Play Store can print messages or take your messages to the printer.

But we have the solution and more than 10 million downloads, which can help you print messages quickly and for free. 

Method 1: To Print Texts From Messages Without Any App

Method number one, it’s pretty easy. You can screenshot all the text, then print those screenshots, and this is how you can print text conversations from Android.

Here’s a simplified step to print text messages on an Android device in under 5 steps:

  1. Take screenshots of the text messages you want to print.
  2. Open the Gallery or Photos app on your Android device and locate the screenshots you took.
  3. Select the screenshots that contain the text messages.
  4. Tap the Share or Options button and choose the Print option from the sharing menu.
  5. Select a printer and adjust any necessary print settings, then tap Print to print the screenshots with the text messages.

1. Open the messaging app.

This is one of the easiest methods to print the conversation. If you have fewer conversations with anyone, this is one of the helpful ways to print text.

Method 2: To Print Texts Using An Third-Party App (safe)

Now there is a top-rated app on the Google Play Store named print share, but because of the latest Google policies, this app cannot print messages from your Android.

Yes, printing out the entire text from a conversation on Android from any Messenger App is possible. For this, a user would require a third-party printing application shown in the backdroid.com blog. 

However, they find an alternative way. A user has to download the print share app from their official website, but it’s not available on google.com. So first of all, you have to download the print share app from their website, which is printshare.net. I would link the download below.

How to Download Print Share app with SMS printing compatibility

1. Open printshare.net or click here.

2. Tap on download for Android.

9. Lastly, confirm print options such as copies and page per sheet.

  2. Search for and install a reputable SMS printing app.
  3. Open the installed app and grant any necessary permissions.
  4. Select the conversation or text messages you want to print within the app.
  5. Tap the Print option, choose a printer, adjust any settings if needed, and tap Print to print the selected text messages.

The above-shared app in this blog will help you to print the entire conversation, even if it contains 100S of text quickly, but you have to download the app from the website link given here.

What if the conversation is shorter? There are two messages sent and received. Then, you can use method number one, which I show above.

Some things could be improved with the screenshot printing method of text.

  • Firstly, you cannot print out the long conversation.
  • Even if you take the whole conversation screenshot, the quality of the screenshot will decrease, so You won’t be able to read the text.

The screenshot text printing method only applies when you have fever messages or are short on conversation via text.

My Opinion About PrintShare App

Here’s my take on the app. I have used the app many times to print PDFs, but this time, I have used it for this particular article to print my messages. This makes the app much more valuable and helpful because many conversations on the text happen.

Sometimes I get a business offer in my text, and sometimes my girlfriend texts me. That’s why I need to print messages.

Can we print an entire text conversation?

Yes, there is a way to print the entire text conversation on any smartphone; this process includes an app that can print SMS with the entire conversation, no matter how long.
