    Is there a way to enlarge the message composing area in the stock SMS app? It's really tiny, just a couple of lines, and I'd like to make it bigger.

    which phone?
    Which version of android?
    Which carrier?
    Which SMS app?

    In general, since SMS is limited to about 140 chars, there is usually not much space given to composing a message in any of the SMS apps.

    if you mean Android Messages by stock then I think you can't.
    it's managed by the attribute "maxLines".

    Which phone, carrier? Doesn't matter, I'm talking about the standard Android SMS app. It's called "Messaging", with the green oval icon. Which Android version? Marshmallow, since that's the section I posted this in, but it doesn't matter, this app has had the same problem for years.

    The rationale of a 140 character limitation is ridiculous, since this app (like others I'm sure) allows messages as long as you want, which are probably managed enroute as smaller clumps but who cares.
