This tutorial will explain how to forward SMS with specific text on Android to another phone. By default, Android has an option to export SMS, but it doesn’t allow you to select SMS with specific text. That means you cannot transfer or forward specific SMS with a text of your choice to another phone. But today, I have figure out some simple methods using which you can now easily forward SMS with specific text on Android to another phone.
To do this, I will actually use some of the best automation service apps for Android including IFTTT, AutomateIt, and MacroDroid. These apps can automatically forward all the SMS from Android, which contains any specific keyword or text, to other phones like Android, iPhone, etc. You can simply use these apps to create an automated task to do the same.
Note: The SMS will be forwarded via your phone messaging app, which means it will cost you the standard SMS cost for each forwarded SMS.
IFTTT is one of the best automation apps which you can use to forward SMS with specific text. You can simply create an applet using the “Android SMS” service for both trigger and action. This will help you automatically forward the SMS from Android to another phone.
How to Forward SMS with Specific Text on Android to another Phone using IFTTT:
Step 1: To get started, open up the IFTTT app on your Android phone and go to the “My Applets” tab. Then click on the “+” button to create a new applet. Now, you would need to choose “Android SMS” as the trigger app and then select “New SMS received matches search” as the trigger. After that, it will ask you to enter the keyword or text for which you want to forward the SMS.
Step 2: Once done, you can go ahead and again choose “Android SMS” as the action app. After that, select the “Send an SMS” action for the applet. Then you will be prompted to enter the phone number to which you want to forward the SMS and construct the message body by adding ingredients like Text, ContactName, FromNumber, etc.
Step 3: After you have done that, simply activate the applet. No, each time you receive an SMS that contains the keyword which you have specified, it will be automatically forwarded to the phone number you have entered in Step 2.
AutomateIt is another free automation app for Android which can be used to forward SMS with specific text on Android to another phone. This app lets you easily create automated rules with a trigger and action. So, you can also create a rule for forwarding SMS automatically whenever the message contains a text you specify.
