We support a wide variety of file types over MMS including images, videos, and PDFs.
The industry standard maximum file size limit is 600KB for toll-free accounts and is 1MB on shortcode accounts.
However, our system can compress many file types, which means you can often upload files that are over the industry limit and we'll resize it for you. 👌 (Note: file compression is possible for static images only).
The upload limits differ for toll-free accounts and shared shortcode accounts, which we lay out below.
If you use a toll-free number (e.g. 888-555-555), you can upload the following file types: GIF, PNG, JPG/JPEG, TXT, and animated GIF.

If you ever want to send a file that isn't supported, you can always upload it to Google Drive or Dropbox and send it as a link! Be sure to use our URL shortener.
