Understanding Text Messages

You can send text messages from email account hosted on your Vocera smartphone or from the User Console to a user or a group.

When you send a message to a group, all members of the group receive the message. Recipients can read these short messages on their device displays.

The following sections describe how to send text messages to a Vocera device. You cannot send text messages from a Vocera badge, but you can send them from a smartphone. Both Vocera badges and smartphones can receive text messages.
