Android SMS channel

Use the Android channel to connect to your Android smartphone. To be able to connect to your smartphone you need to first install the Auron SMS Agent for Android app.

Find more information about channels in general here.

Android SMS channels are ideal for sending and receiving a low to medium volume of SMS messages. The number of simultaneous Android SMS channels depends on the license tier of your Auron SMS Server installation.

With an Android SMS channel you can send and receive:

  • Single part and multipart messages
  • Unicode messages

The Android SMS Channel will automatically use Unicode if a message contains Unicode characters.
