How to Use Your Laptop to Send Messages From Your Phone

You don’t always have to squint at a 6-inch screen and tap out your communications on a little touch keyboard.

Most messaging apps now let you use your laptop or desktop computer as well as your phone.

To get this working, go to Messages in Settings on iOS, tap Text Message Forwarding, and make sure your Mac is enabled.

Next, from the main Settings screen, tap your name and iCloud, then toggle Messages on.

It only works with Android phones, as you might expect considering iOS doesn’t give any other app text message access, and you also need the Your Phone Companion app for Android installed.

It’s just a question of signing in with your Microsoft ID and linking your phone number, and your text messages then show up by magic.
