Phone Link to SMS in Browser

Is there any way to add the option of sending SMS messages from linked phone numbers in the browser?  In both email messages and Word docs phone numbers are hyperlinked to a menu that provides call and sms options, but in the web browser the menu only allows making a phone call.  Is there any way to add SMS capabilities to phone number links in HTML?

Re: Phone Link to SMS in Browser

Hi James,


Thanks for your question.  There is currently no way to provide a link to sending an SMS message from the browser application.


A request for this feature has already been submitted to product management.  However, at this time, there are no plans or timelines for adding this feature to the browser.
