How to download SMS short code from Google Play and restore SMS messages in Android 8.0 and later

We all know the Android Messages app is getting an update today and with it comes a new feature called SMS Short Code. 

It lets you send and receive SMS messages using a number you create in Google Play. 

 The feature is available in the Play Store for Android 8 and above. 

Now you can also save SMS messages from your Google Play account to your phone or even send them to someone else on the same network. 

So you can send a message to someone on the other side of the world, even if you are away from your home. 

There is also an SMS Recovery app in the Google Play store, which will allow you to restore a SMS message that has been lost or misplaced. 

This feature will only work in Android 7.1 and above, but it will work with older versions as well. 

SMS Short Code is now a fully supported feature of Android 7, but if you use an older version of Android, you may still want to disable the feature. 

To do this, go to Settings -> Messages -> Advanced -> SMS Short code. 

Then, you will be prompted to choose which SMS Shortcode you want to enable. 

It’s important to note that SMS Shortcodes will only appear in the Android Messaging app and not in Google Calendar, Google Search, Google Play Music, Google Maps, Google Talk, Google+ or Google+. 

If you don’t want any SMS Short codes appearing in the Messaging or Calendar apps, then you will have to delete the SMS Short Codes folder from your phone.
