How do I send and receive text messages from the desktop apps?

Grasshopper SMS (texting) allows you to send and receive text messages on your Grasshopper number using the mobile or desktop apps. Note that it is an add-on feature that must be enabled separately for each individual Grasshopper phone number on your account. 

Text messages automatically show in the Messages section and refresh automatically. When a new text message is received, you will receive a notification from the Grasshopper app. 

  1. Log in to the desktop app. 
  2. Click Messages in the left toolbar. 
  3. If more than one phone number is enabled with texting, use the drop-down menu at the top of the window to switch between phone numbers.
  4. Click an existing conversation to read and reply to incoming texts, or click the Compose icon to send a new text.
