TextNow is a piece of software available for Android and other platforms, and it does the task of generating a virtual phone number that allows you to send text messages and have phone calls for free. This service requires each user to create an account. After you've made the account, the next step is to pick a phone number and use it to communicate with other people.
Using this application, you won't be allowed to call European phone numbers, but you can have unlimited and free phone calls to any phone number in the US & Canada. In terms of window layout, TextNow rocks a friendly and intuitive user interface that suits all kinds of users. This service lets you see the called ID, forward calls, and more.
As the user, you are allowed to create signatures that you can apply to each text. When it comes to the system in charge of messaging, TextNow lets you insert stickers, emojis, GIF images, send, receive and save pictures, and so on. If you like to customize certain aspects, you will be happy to know that this application lets you customize the background, apply individual ringtones for each contact, change the vibration, text-tone, etc.
Another plus for TextNow is the voicemail transcript function. This feature is capable of creating a transcript for each voicemail you have. As we all know, privacy is a big thing regarding conversations with other people. To further protect your privacy, this app lets you hide your conversations by configuring a passcode. If you want to chat with multiple people at the same time, you will be glad to know that you can do this by using the Conference feature. Thanks to its availability on other platforms, you can now send messages and make calls straight from your computer or tablet, done on behalf of the phone number you've received at the creation of the account.
