As per Microsoft this feature is not supported in SharePoint Online.

Also they are stating they have no plans to built this feature.

Unfortunately SharePoint Online doesn’t support SMS, and we are not planning to undertake such support in the near future. We are, however, working on bringing push notifications on mobile devices. We don’t have any timelines to disclose on this yet.
