How to forward a text message (SMS) from an android phone into your webhook

April 08, 20235 min read

You can now program your android phone to forward messages received on your phone to your server and trigger powerful automations with tools like Zapier and IFTTT. I created an open source application called httpSMS that helps you to set this up with ease

Step 1: Get your API_KEY

Create an account on the httpSMS web application and copy your API key from the settings page.

Step 2: Install the httpSMS android app

Install the httpSMS android app on your phone and sign in using your API KEY which you copied above. This app listens for SMS messages received on your android phone.

Step 3: Set up a webhook

Once the application has been installed, it will be listening for SMS messages received on the android phone. You can configure the application to sent this SMS message to your server URL using a webhook. You can configure this URL under the settings page in the httpSMS application


Congratulations, you have successfully set up SMS forwarding from your Android phone to a webhook! This powerful automation tool can help you streamline your business workflow and save you time and effort.

You can also trigger the httpSMS application to send an SMS a simple API. You can find more information on the documentation page at

Until the next time✌️
