Messaging is one of, if not the most, used forms of communication in the world. In the U.S., texting through your carrier is the most used form of messaging. Since texting is used for so much communication, you may need to print some text messages from a pleasant conversation you want to remember or if you need to use text messages as evidence in a court case. There isn’t a built-in feature to print text messages on the best Android phones, but there are a few workarounds you can use to print images of your texts.

This guide discusses how to print text messages from an Android phone using the Google Messages app, which is the default texting app on most new Android phones. If you use another app to text, it might have other ways to print text messages that aren’t listed here.

How to print text messages from your Android phone

The most natural place to print your text messages from is the phone you texted on. Google Messages does not natively include a way to print texts from within the app. The best workaround is to take screenshots of the messages you want to print and print them from your phone.

  1. Open the Messages app.
  2. Select or search for the conversation you want to print messages from.
  3. Find the messages you would like to print.
  4. Simultaneously press the volume up and power buttons.
  5. If the text messages you want to print don’t fit on your screen, tap the Capture More button that pops up at the bottom of your screen. Then drag the bounds of the capture box to select the content you want to capture. This may not capture all the content you want to print, but it will capture more than the default.
  6. Tap the Share button.
  7. Scroll down and tap the Print icon.
  8. Choose a printer and tap the Print button.

Check your printer, and your texts should be printed and ready to share.
