This example shows the common process of configuring this plugin.

Although it was taken from a Angular 6 application, it should work in other frameworks as well.

Register plugin

Find the init component of your app, which is in Angular app.component.ts and register this plugin by

import {registerWebPlugin} from "@capacitor/core";
import {SmsManager} from '@byteowls/capacitor-sms';

export class AppComponent implements OnInit {

    ngOnInit() {
        console.log("Register custom capacitor plugins");
        // other stuff

Use it

        android: {
          openSmsApp: false
    }).then(() => {
        for (const m of recipients) {
                numbers: [m.number],
                text: [m.text],
                android: {
                    openSmsApp: false
            }).then(() => {
                console.log("Successfully sent!");
            }).catch(reason => {
                console.log("Failed to send! Reason: " + reason.message);
    }).catch(reason => {
        console.log("No permssions given!");

Platform: Android

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        List<Class<? extends Plugin>> additionalPlugins = new ArrayList<>();
        // Additional plugins you've installed go here
        // Ex: additionalPlugins.add(TotallyAwesomePlugin.class);
