The SMS by Zapier app is a free, built-in feature that lets you send yourself text messages. If you have a US or UK phone number, you can use this app to send yourself up to 15 messages per hour. This is a great way to receive notifications from your Zaps.
SMS by Zapier has a few limitations:
- You can send up to 15 messages per hour.
- You can only send messages within the United States and United Kingdom.
- You can only send messages to phone numbers that have been verified and are fixed to your account
- Your message can only be up to 153 characters long. Zapier will cut off any characters beyond that.
- If you're in the UK, Zapier will override the number that your text message comes from with a UK number.
If you need to do something that you can't do because of these limitations—such as sending more than 15 text messages in an hour or longer messages—then you'll need to use one of the many text message services available on Zapier.
