Microsoft’s SMS Organizer is one of the most popular SMS apps on Android and it is also available in the UK and the US alongside India. The app has received a new update. Taking the app to version 1.1.161., the update introduces a noteworthy new feature and bug fixes.

Talking about the new feature, with the new update installed, you’ll be able to search contacts just by typing a few digits of a phone number. Once you type a digit in the search box, SMS Organizer will look for the match and will display the result.
