    Default Print text message from Android

    I am new to Smartphones and having recently acquired a simple Samsung Galaxy AO1, I wish to print a text message.

    Is there an easy way to do this?. Any help would be appreciated. I have consulted Google but am more confused than ever.

    I'd copy the text to an email and print that (from android if you an figure out how), or send it to a pc and print from there.. Hard without knowing your printer capabilities (and yours)

    With the message selected on a samsung xcover 4 (long press on the text), there was a share button on the top right 3 button menu (called the hamburger menu), I was then able to share it to email, or there was a copy button on the share menu that copied the text of the message

    Hope one of those methods might help

    As Psycik said above "Long Press" on the nessage you wish to print then press on the 3 dots at the top right of the screen. You can then select "Share" You can then select what you wish to do from there. I can print directly from there on my phone if yours cannot email it to yourself and print it from there as Psycik has suggested.

    I only get forward or the like. No share. The one time I needed a copy, I forwarded to my Iphone friend and she emailed it back to me.

    It probably has to do with what version of Android your phone is running mine is on version 10.
