Send SMS Messages from a Computer
Edited by Jay
SMS or text messaging is one of the most frequently used methods of communicating in today's world. The privacy, speed, and the fact that you can send a message from practically anywhere makes texting the go-to for pretty much anyone who owns a mobile device. There are times, however, when sending text messages from a computer is more convenient. If you work on a PC, having to stop and pick up your smartphone to respond to texts can hinder productivity significantly. If your mobile device is out-of-reach and you need to send or respond to a message quickly, doing so from your computer is a great option. Whatever the reason, being set up to send and receive text messages from your computer can be a lifesaver.
There are a variety of ways to use a PC or Mac to send and receive SMS messages. WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Skye are a few popular options. Another frequently used app is called MightyText, which is currently for Android users only. With the installation of the mobile app, users can use their Google account to sign-in and sync their messaging app with MightyTexts web interface. So, as long you have access to a web browser, you can send and receive texts messages from your computer or tablet.
In the following VisiHow guide, we're going to walk through the steps for installing MightyText on an Android device, as well as getting set up to use a web browser to send and receive SMS messages. For this tutorial, we used a Google Pixel running Android Oreo, a Clevo laptop running Windows 10 Professional, and Google's Chrome browser.
