React Native Linking SMS

Now that RN supports Linking cross-platform, I am wondering how to send an SMS with a preset message. Per the docs (

Try to open the given url with any of the installed apps.
You can use other URLs, like a location (e.g. “geo:37.484847,-122.148386”), a contact, or any other URL that can be opened with the installed apps.

My question is, what URI scheme do I follow to open an SMS with a predefined message? Is it cross-platform?

Thank you.


Have you considered and tried sms:number?body=yourMessage?

You can read up on it in RFC 5724.
