send message between two emulator android

send a message between two emulator android is working same as sending a message from one mobile to another mobile. Here in case of sending a message between emulators you need to use emulator port number instead of the mobile number because emulators can be identified by their port.  Follow the steps to send a message between two or more emulators.

Step 1: Start AVD

Step 2: Again Start AVD (for example if you run AVD First time it will be assigned port like 5554 and second-time port may be 5556)

Step 3: If you want to send a message from 5554 to 5556 then you need to go to emulator 5554, Message -> Compose and write the mobile number as 5556 and message hit Send Button.

Step 4: Add following permission into your AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-permission android:name=”android.permission.SEND_SMS”/>

Step 5 : Write down following code and Run your project in emulator 5554
