One of the great features of Android is the ability to send videos via text message, also known as MMS. This can be a great way to share a funny video with friends or family, or even to just keep in touch with loved ones while you’re on the go. Unfortunately, not all Android devices are created equal, and some phones don’t have the necessary features to send videos via MMS. If you’re not sure whether your phone can do this, there’s an easy way to check.
Open the Messages app on your Android phone
Assuming you already have a video saved to your Android device, open the Messages app and tap the + icon, then tap Video camera. If you don’t see the Video camera option, tap the More options icon (it looks like three vertical dots), then tap Video camera.
Locate and select the video you want to send, then tap the Send icon. The video will be compressed and sent as an MMS message.
Create a new message
Assuming you have already taken a video on your Android device, open the Messages app and create a new message. Then, tap the paperclip icon in the lower-left corner of the message interface. This will open a menu of options for attaching media to your message; select “Video.”
If you have more than one video saved on your device, you will be prompted to choose which video you would like to send. Once you have selected a video, it will appear as a thumbnail in your message. You can then add text to your message and send it as normal.
Tap the Camera icon to attach a video
The Camera icon is located in the bottom left corner of the screen. Tap it to select a video from your phone’s library or to record a new video. To send the video, tap the Send button.
Select the video you want to send
Assuming you have already the video saved on your Android device, open your Messages app and create a new message. Then, touch the paperclip icon in the lower-left corner of the screen and select the video from your Gallery. If you want to send multiple videos, tap and hold on a video to select it, then tap any additional videos you want to include. When you’re ready to send your message, tap the Send button.
Tap the Send icon to send your video
To send a video via text message on your Android device, simply tap the Send icon in the top right corner of the screen. This will open a new window where you can select a contact or enter a phone number to send your video. Once you’ve selected a recipient, simply tap the Send button and your video will be sent!
