TextNow is an app that lets you call and send text messages without paying a dime. That's right! This free lunch is paid for by the revenue that the app creators make through ad banners and occasional videos that are advertised after each call.

So, if you are looking for a phone plan to send and receive unlimited calls and messages for free, TextNow can come in handy. While you still need to be connected over Wi-Fi, wired internet, or have a data plan, you don't have to unnecessarily spend on calls and messages. Just download the app from your Android Play Store and you are ready to go.

If you have an old phone lying around that you want to use as a backup, simply install TextNow. You can also use this strategy for phones that you want to gift to your family members who just need to keep in touch without having to worry about monthly bills.

The latest TextNow version also comes with a video-calling feature that you can utilize for calling anyone with a phone and service even if they don't have this application. All you need to do is send them an invite that allows a browser-based call session.
