Whether to keep track of a certain portion of a conversation, to save a whole or to secure some specific information for legal purposes, it's important to know how to print text messages from Samsung Galaxy and that's what we're going to deal with in this article.
In the first method, we're going to make use of an Android Assistant - Samsung Messages Backup. Here, you'll first need to transfer the texts from your Samsung Galaxy S20/S10/S9/S8/S7/Note 9/8/7/6 to your computer and print out the SMS for free.

To do that, you need to export your wanted text conversations to a computer in CSV format and print out the SMS with Excel.

If you don't want to use an intermediary software then instead of printing the messages from your Galaxy as actual texts, you can have them printed in image form.

It's a pretty quick way to make a printout of your text messages but the problem is, to make a hard-copy of a long conversation, you'd have to take a lot of screenshots. So it's best that you stick with short text with this one.
If you don't want to use a computer but still need to print out long conversations and text messages from a Samsung phone, there are free apps available on Play Store that you can use. Since there are quite a few such apps, we'll just stick to SMS Backup & Print.
SMS Backup, Print & Restore, which is called SMS Share 2 previously, lets you share your text messages from your phone using any sharing method available on your Samsung phone. Whether it's Facebook, email or Whatsapp, you can use the sharing medium through this app to essentially create a copy of your text messages at a source that you can easily access from another device (computer) or your phone itself and download it as an imported file.
It allows you to print out the SMS and MMS from your Samsung Galaxy directly or you can send the text conversations to an Email for printing.
The methods listed here are not the only ways to create a hardcopy of your text messages. Any program or application, like SMS Backup+, that can back up your messages externally can be used as an intermediary to take the printout. SMS Backup+, for instance, can be synced to your Gmail account, which will then act as the storage for your SMS.
These messages can then be viewed by clicking on the "SMS" tab on the left panel of your account along with "Inbox". You can then download any text from there on your computer or your phone and print it out.
