How do I send international SMS?


#1

I would like to reach family and friends in Europe. How do I do that?


#2

use a third party app/service (like Google Voice /Skype) (Republic does not offer international calling or text only to US and Canadian numbers)

Unlike calls, I believe Google Voice is limited to sending SMS text messages to U.S. and Canadian numbers: https://support.google.com/voice/answer/115116?co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&hl=en&oco=1. Skype can indeed be used to send international SMS: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12296/sending-sms-text-messages-on-skype-for-android. Pinger’s Textfree is another option for some international destinations: https://pinger.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203621864-Texting-internationally-on-Textfree-Android.
