How to Use the Inbox (Mobile)

  • updated 12 days ago


Shout’s multi-channel inbox allows you to view all incoming messages and active conversations in one place. This means all your messages from texts, Facebook Messenger, and Shout-to-Shout (S2S) come directly to your Shout inbox.

To learn how to connect your inbox to your Facebook page, go here.
