Send an SMS message from an app: Android Development Tips Weekly

You can send an SMS message programmatically from an Android app with a bit of Java code, but you have to first make sure that the appropriate permission has been granted. In Android 5 and earlier, that’s just a matter of declaring the permission in the app manifest, but starting with Android 6 the user has to grant permission explicitly from within the app. The permission, named SEND_SMS, is categorized as a “dangerous” permission.
