[Android] Custom Stickers

TextNow is pleased to announce a new feature for people using the free version of TextNow on Android devices: Custom stickers!

When you text your friends and contacts, TextNow will show you some stickers you can send based on the words you've typed. Here's a quick video with our developers Scott and Richard explaining how it works!



Note: Custom stickers are currently only available for free app users on the Android platform.

    What about the floating cat head. I am notified that I have the floating cat head open and I don't see it.

    Hi Katina and Linda!

    April Fools! The floating cat heads were a playful trick set up by our developers on April 1st. They should be gone by now, but if they're still appearing try these steps here. If this does not work send us an email at orders@textnow.com and we can get those turned off for you. :)

    Hi Kj,

    Stickers have not been released on our paid platform, but you can look forward to them in one of our future updates!

    Hey there,

    We do not have a specific list available right now. We have currently released a LOT of them, but will be continuing to release more and rotate some in and out for holidays etc. We hope to be able to keep surprising you with fun new stickers/emojis!

    Hey Jazmin! We're sorry to hear of your experience, but I'm afraid that we do not support a method of disabling those at this point in time. You can try to upgrade to the premium app, which will no longer support the stickers.
    Another option would be to use our service on a desktop (on textnow.com/messaging) for easier use as well :)

    Has a method to disable stickers been made yet for android? When particular phrases are entered to see stupid things pop up and disable the cursor which stops me from moving it into that phrase to correct spelling or specifics. Real pain in the butt.

    Hey there! There is a setting in the app (under messaging- "suggest stickers & gifs') where you can turn those off

    Switching off stickers doesn't work 100% of the time. I shut the option off, but they still pop up half the time, just so you know.

    Hey there! Can you please clarify whether the actual stickers are showing up, or just that the words are still being highlighted?

    How about adding a list of all of the blue words to your website.

    It is definitely stickers, they pop up where the autocorrect suggestions are but not everytime, about 50% of the time.

    OK, that makes sense. This is still the expected behaviour when turning off the auto-suggestions, but it is something that our development team is looking into improving :)

    This is not about the stickers but about the icône that identifies the callers. Each person used to be identified with the initials of their name but one day that all disappeared. They are of different colors for many and some have gained back their initials but not all. So when I see an icône appear because of a text message, I don't know who it is because there are no initiales of the caller in the icône. How do I get them back?
    Thanks for all the great work you put into this app. I greatly appreciate it. Never texted before but since I have TextNow, I text everyday with lots of pleasure.
