Quick Reply Message Settings


TextNow has a number of options for how you can reply to incoming messages. Here's where to find them, and what they mean:

Finding Your Quick Reply Settings:

1. Open your TextNow main menu by tapping on the main menu button  3dashes.png, and then tap on the Settings button  ic_settings_24dp-2.jpg.

2. On your Settings page, tap on Messaging.

3. On the Messaging page, tap on Quick Reply


That will open the Quick Reply page:



From here, you can turn on or off each option anytime.

Floating Chat: Chat "heads" overlaid on your phone screen, no matter what app or screen you're on, like this:


In the above example, the circle near the top right-hand corner with the red number 2 on it is the floating chat. The chat circle will contain a picture of your contact if you've associated a picture with them (in this case, Robocop), and the 2 is how many unread messages you have from that contact. Tap on the circle to expand it and read or reply to the message.

TextNow popup: Similar to the chat heads except it pops up a box overlay at the top of any given screen during an incoming message. You can reply to your contact directly from this box.


Lock screen quick reply: Very similar to the popup above, except it will also appear on your lock screen when your phone is locked.
