Do you have a certain text conversation in your mobile device that you want to do more than just back it up into a cloud server? Why not print the conversation instead? If this is what you’re gunning for, then read on to know how to print a text message conversation from your gadget.
Printing a Text Message From Your Mobile Device
Step 1 – First of all, you might be thinking, “Why should I ever want to print a text message from my mobile device?” Well, for starters, simply taking a screenshot of the conversation and uploading it into the cloud might be secure, but there are times when things in your personal cloud storage can get all cluttered up. Hence, finding what you need can become more of a hassle the next time around. Furthermore, printing a text message that has delicate information is better than keeping it inside your phone. Things like credit card information can be better kept in printed format rather than keeping it inside your device where it might fall prey to cyber attackers.
Step 2 – With that being said, in order to print a text conversation from your mobile phone, you need to have a printer that supports Google Cloud Print (for Android) and the Apple AirPrint (for iOS). If you do have such a printer, then continue to read on. If you don’t, then do know that there is still a way for you to print text messages from your device but you would have to go through other measures to achieve that.
Step 3 – The first thing to do is to open up the text message that you want to be printed and take a screenshot of it. Doing so will produce an image that will be found inside your phone’s picture gallery application. Head on to the screenshot of the text conversation afterwards. From here, it gets a bit different depending on whether you have an Android or iOS device.
Step 4 – For iOS devices, highlight the screenshot and tap on the share button found on the bottom-right corner of your screen. at the very bottom, you should be able to find a button that says “Print.” Tapping on “Print” in the top-right corner of the print preview screen will send the image to your print so that it will print it.
Step 5 – For Android mobile devices, first of all, download and install the Cloud Print app on your phone. After that, you can either save the screenshot as a PDF file by uploading it to Google Drive first before printing it out, or use a brand-specific app that might come with your printer. If you want to go with the former approach, upload the file into your Google Drive first. Then, select your file then tap on the share button. You can then send it to your printer if it’s connected directly within your home network.
