One of the most useful features of modern digital two way radios is text messaging. This capability allows users to send texts via keypads on their radios and read them on their LCD displays. Why would you need to send a text message when you can simply speak over the two way radio? A radio with both voice and integrated data applications such as text messaging will also save workers carrying an extra device, such as a pager or mobile phone. Even lower-end digital radios with no LCD or keypad can often be programmed to send pre-recorded text messages via a button on the handset, although the more basic models are normally restricted to a maximum of three messages.

Hall teaches a class called Language and Digital Media in which she and her 20 undergraduate students explore ways in which people communicate in texts and online.

It has grown beyond alphanumeric text to include multimedia messages using the Multimedia Messaging Service MMS containing digital images, videos, and sound content, as well as ideograms known as emoji happy faces , sad faces, and other icons , and instant messenger applications usually the term is used when on mobile devices. Text messages are used for personal, family, business and social purposes. Governmental and non-governmental organizations use text messaging for communication between colleagues. In the s, the sending of short informal messages has become an accepted part of many cultures, as happened earlier with emailing.
