How to send text messages from your PC with Android Messages for web




Have you ever wanted to send text messages from the comfort of your desktop or laptop computer? Well if you’re on Android, now you can thanks to the latest update of the Android Messages app. Android Messages is Google’s SMS/RCS chat client on Android devices. It’s pre-installed on millions of devices worldwide and thanks to the update, you can now access all of your messages from a web client that works on browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge, and more. The best part? It’s totally free!

Earlier today, Google started to roll out the web client for Android Messages. We knew this was coming since an earlier APK Teardown in February and early April. In mid-April, Google officially announced the feature. The company hasn’t yet announced it yet, but there’s reason to believe deeper integration between Chromebooks and Android Messages will arrive as will a beautiful new Google Material Design theme. If that doesn’t convince you to switch over to Android Messages from Pushbullet, Textra, or whatever other chat/PC sync client you’re using already, then check out the Messages for Web client below. Once it rolls out for you, it’ll be the easiest way to send text messages from your PC for no cost at all!

Android Messages for Web User Interface

As you can see, the web client is pretty minimalist but packs a lot of features on top of a beautiful Google Material Theme. The web client matches the new design language that Google touted at Google I/O 2018. All of your existing conversation histories are accessible in the app so you won’t miss out on anything by connecting your Android phone to your laptop or desktop PC. You can send emojis, upload images, and more just like you can on the Android app. That’s not surprising considering the web client basically just acts as a front-end to the Android app—your phone is still doing the heavy lifting here.
