Discord SMS Messaging App Proposition
Today, I was working on finding a new 3rd party messenger for my android phone. I've messed with a few of them such as Textra, Mood Messenger, Android Messenger, and Pulse SMS. https://play.google.com/store/search?q=sms&c=apps
Both Pulse SMS and Android Messenger (with millions of downloads) feature a desktop/web application where you can send text messages on your computer rather than phone. This made me think about how crazy it is that I use 2 separate apps for a single service- messaging. One is over the internet, one is over text.
So here is my proposition: Make Discord connect to your phone in the same way Pulse SMS or Android Messages does and take over the job of sending texts. This way someone could lets say- send a text message to their mothers using Discord (which then sends it to their phone which texts it to their mother's number). By doing this, Discord might be able to overthrow Android Messages and other popular text messaging apps and greatly climb in popularity.
I strongly agree, it would replace pushbullet and just make it way easier to use discord as an sms applicaiton13
I agree as well, what I don't understand is why people are down voting it, as it would be an optional feature...8
I think people are misunderstanding what OP means. OP isn't proposing that we should forced to use discord as an sms rather it's an opt in feature of the mobile version that would also let you text via PC or Mac. Might start a new thread abt this...7
If you do, let us know so we can upvote it lol5
I hope I really want it to also. Since I'm on discord literally all the time too6
I do too... im begging you, im so tired of so many chat apps and sms apps.... i just want one.3
Take my money!
This needs to be a kickstarter or something. All existing android SMS apps are just so terrible. This would fill a HUGE empty void in the market with little competition. Discord could even charge me 5-20 $ monthly fees for this (optional) feature, and I'd still use it.3
I think it’s time for this to become a thing2
I always use discord at home, and when I go out I just use the messages app so my friends don’t know where to send messages.1
We've been checking forums and threads about anyone who is interested on SMS/ Texts on Discord. We're keen-on building this requirement. Would you be interested to get involved?:
1. Other than above proposition, how do you want SMS/ Text messaging to work with Discord?
2. testing beta product/ integration?
3. are you open for bulk texts sending?
You may kindly reach me personally at email@example.com. Hoping to hear from you.
