    Prevent truncation of large clipboard entries

    Michael · 2 replies · Last reply by Michael

    Some text files I copy to my PC clipboard are obviously too big to sync with my phone clipboard, which is understandable. However the problem I have is that as soon as Join tries to sync it then my PC clipboard is truncated so it no longer contains the whole text file, so I have a window of about 3 seconds to do a copy and paste before Join modifies the PC clipboard and deletes everything beyond the first 5000 characters.

    I never need to copy such large amounts of text between devices, so a simple "if clipboard contents < 5000 chars

    SMS messages reading UI improvement: Toggle & auto expanding SMS thread view to show last 2 messages.

    Toti Fanara · 0 replies · Posted

    Currently to view SMS requires to click in order to show the thread of a given number/contact. A "toggle" UI element (not an "accordion" one) would allow expanding one or more threads without leaving the reading list. 


    1) Implementing a toggle would allow users to display a given thread within the same index list instead of jumping back and forth with the added benefit of being able to work with messages of more than one contact. 

    2) Do not "crop" messages by default to show only an X number of characters from the last message in a thread. The reading list should let users with

    Add more favorite shortcuts

    Robert Zduński · 0 replies · Posted

    The favorite shortcut can be set to a lot of functions, but currently only one shortcut is available to be set, so it would be great to have more of them. Ideally all shortcuts should be customizable to allow for even more personal settings. I myself don't use the pre-made function shortcuts at all, for example.

    Microsoft Edge Extension

    Raymond Quach · 0 replies · Posted

    Considering that Microsoft Edge has the best battery life for laptops, I think adding an extension to Microsoft Edge will benefit users who want the best battery life from their device. Also, the SMS feature on the Join website does not work on Microsoft Edge.

    Same permissions for shared accounts vs your personal devices

    Lawrence Mayes · 0 replies · Posted

    Allow the same permissions for shared accounts. Such as screenshot and locations sms. This would be beneficial for our business phones. No matter who has the actual phone we can all get the messages and respond. Screenshot function for my children. Or when performing tech support functions for my mom and I'm getting her to describe what she sees

    Workaround to all Windows App limitations

    Eisa AlAwadhi · 0 replies · Posted


    I just wanted to post this idea that might be possible to solve Windows App limitations.


    Wouldn't it be possible to join the Windows App with a .exe service that can be downloaded through the Windows App itself to enable extra features that Windows App cannot support by its own?

    Once you want to enable the extra features such as auto copying in Windows App it will ask for installation for another .exe service from join website? that will allow you to bypass all of the Windows Universal application limitations.

    Once the extra .exe is installed it will

    Add Copy Number & Dismiss button to notification

    Sander · 0 replies · Posted

    I receive 2-factor authentication (2FA) codes via SMS. Right now I have to take these actions in Chrome on Windows/Mac:

    1. Click the More actions button/link
    2. Click 'Copy number'
    3. Click 'Dismiss everywhere'

    Please make one button for 'Copy & Dismiss' that copies the number from the SMS and dismisses the Android notification. This will greatly speed up the workflow of using 2FA codes.

    Option to not sync SMS Media



    I'd love to have the ability to not sync Media from SMS messages. I love being able to send/receive SMS from my computer, but I don't want media shared because it'll be uploaded to servers I don't control or have the ability to protect in a manage I control. This is a privacy concern.

    Hide SMS content on Notifications ONLY

    Grant Gregory · 0 replies · Posted

    Hi there - I really like the app, but I was wondering if you could make it be an option to only hide notification content for text messages. All other app notifications (emails, facebook, etc) would show the messages content.

    Another user had a similar request 6 months ago. I have added their request below:

    A feature I really miss is the capability to be aware that a new SMS has arrived, but without displaying a
    notification by the browser (for privacy purpose). Currently :

    • either you enable notifications for one's SMS app, and SMS are displayed on PC screen

    Notification timeout per app

    Dimitri Avrutin · 0 replies · Posted


    I would like to suggest an option to set the notification to disappear from the chrome browser based on a per app definition.
    For example, Facebook notifications I would prefer to stay for 10 seconds while mail notification to stay until I dismiss them manually.

    Currently I only see an option for globally all join notifications without an option to limit per app.


    thank you
