Learning how to print text messages from Android will come in really handy when backing up those important text messages or having some kind of hard evidence handy. The problem with printing off text messages is that there’s not a set option to do this on Android handsets and other devices.
When it comes to figuring out how to print text messages from Android, you can either use a Wi-Fi supported printer to print directly from your phone or drop screenshots of the conversation into your chosen cloud storage or e-mail them to yourself to pick up on your PC/Mac.
