If you wish to send out a message to the team, in 99% of the cases it's better to do so with an update as opposed to text messages.

Here is why:

  1. Updates are trackable: you will know exactly who saw them and who didn't.

  2. You can follow up on an update: if someone didn't read your message, you can easily follow up with them.

  3. Updates are more personalized: you can create a dedicated push notification, and to customize the information, including images/links videos, etc.

  4. Unlike text messages, with updates, you know the message went through. Text messages don't always make it to the end user.

  5. Updates don't cost you money.

So why include the option to send out text messages?

The prime use case for text messages is for the initial invitation to download the app. To make it easy to invite users with a simple link - these however are not deducted from your text message balance. Another reason for text messages is, if you need to send a text message to someone that is not on the platform, using text messages are a convenient way to do so.
