Google has suggested to us a lot of messaging apps from time to time without having managed to find the golden incision to make us use them. Her new attempt listens to Android Messages, a messaging application to which we have recently added the ability to send SMS from our computer as well. Today we will see how this is done.
We are not talking about something new as it is not the first application that can do that on Android. It’s just the first official Google app that brings us this feature, and it may be pre-installed on our phones in the future, so it’s good to know what it can do.
What does it offer us and how do we activate it?
Using this service allows us to receive our messages even if we have forgotten the mobile at home. In this way, we can also know our missed calls, as many mobile phone companies inform us by SMS when we miss a call. A prerequisite, of course, is for our smartphone to connect to the Internet to sync with the Google server.
Those who routinely send multiple messages everyday also gain the convenience of the keyboard, since they can now write them with the computer. A big deal for companies that communicate with their customers, associates and employees who are out of the office and want an easy solution to manage it.
How To Send SMS From PC Using Android Message
- Download and install the Android Messages app from Google Play.
- Usually, this is required for smartphones that don’t run stock Android. The default SMS app on such devices (like the ones from Samsung, Xiaomi, Sony, OnePlus) is often made by the manufacturer itself.
- On your PC, open any web browser and go to messages.android.com.
- Now, on your phone, open Android Messages.
- Tap the overflow menu button (three dots menu) and tap on Messages for web.
- On the Messages for web screen, tap on Scan QR Code button.
- Now, point your smartphone’s rear camera on the QR code displayed on the computer.
That’s all! In our computer we will now open a web app with the familiar Android environment,from which we can send SMS and manage our communication in general. For those who hurt their eyes, Google has predicted a dark topic that we will find in the page settings.
