What is MMS?

Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is an evolution of a standard SMS message. MMS allows users to send texts with unlimited length, deliver multimedia content such as images, photos, videos, and audio. MMS may contain text in combination with multimedia content, thus providing a rich marketing message. Like SMS, MMS is a universal standard. It works across almost all mobile phones and cellular networks. There is no need for extra software, data packs, or third-party apps/services. All you need is a mobile phone and a cellular network.
