What does OTP Mean in Texting?

OTP is an acronym for “on the phone”. It’s simple, really. In texting, you use it to reply quickly to someone that keeps sending you messages even though you’re on a voice call.

By sending that you’re OTP, you’re letting the other person know why you can’t reply to their texts. Nowadays, people want to get replies quickly, so if you don’t explain why you couldn’t reply, they might get mad. OTP makes life easier because it is easy to type and you don’t waste time.
