What is MMS? MMS features, specifications and limitations.

Last Updated: Jul 23, 2013 10:55AM AEST
Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is a way of sending messages to and from mobile phones that contain multimedia content such as images, audio or video files. Are you a developer? You can also refer to our MM7 API here.

Features

  • Send audio, video, audio or text contents
  • Send MMS via Web Portal or MMS API
  • Send Email to MMS
  • Receive MMS to APi or Email
  • Receive MMS to a dedicated number

How big can my MMS be?

The maximum size of an MMS is limited at 300 kilobytes (kb). This includes all parts of the message, so this counts for both the multimedia content and the text that is entered in the message.
