Android Messages

All is right in the world again; I recently purchased a Pixel 3 XL. Last year, I crossed over to the dark side and purchased an iphone. It was a sound purchase given the circumstances at the time. Anyone who has spoken to me since knows I was itching to get back to android. Now I have, Merry Christmas to me.

The one thing I wasn’t thrilled to lose was imessage. For those of us who don’t know, imessage allows you to send and receive text messages on iphone, ipad, macbook, etc. Basically, you can start a conversation on one device and continue it on another. The new and improved Messages brings this feature to android.

The setup is really easy. Navigate to on your laptop or desktop and follow the easy pairing instructions. There is an app for compatible devices.

Messages is awesome! I’ve paired my macbook and chromebook. If I get a new message, I can respond from the computer and leave the phone where it is.

Have you used the new Messages? What do you think?
