Read SMS from user mobile (even when the app is not open) and store it in sharepoint list

As the subject line suggests i would like to read messages received in user mobile (native sms app) and have to store it somewhere (either in sharepoint list or in collection or some other way)

 

Is there anyway to acheive this ? by default or using any connecters ?

Ready to pay for connecters as well,need to get the job done somehow

HI @vish_p ,

Do you want to retrieve the SMS messages from users' Mobile device?

 

Currently, there is no connector or functions supported to retrieve SMS messages from users' Mobile device in PowerApps. If you want to retrieve the SMS messages from users' Mobile device within an app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum

Hello @vish_p ,

As far as I know, this is currently not possible. PowerApps does not have access to read the SMS from the device.

Is it possible to RECEIVE a text/sms through a service like Twilio? And then have that text pushed into Power Apps? (obviously, this would require a separate number in Twilio)

 

what I’m trying to do is trigger a workflow based on the receipt of a text (independent of where the text is received)
