Want to Text on Your PC? Learn How Here!
If you’re ready to put your phone away but still want to text, you’re in luck. You can download one of these programs that will let you text on your PC.
People don’t want to have their phones on them at all times, especially when they’re working on a computer. That doesn’t mean that it wouldn’t be nice to still be able to text over the computer. Luckily, there are several programs that let you send text to your contacts’ phones through your computer desktop. Here are three of our favorites.
MightyText is a favorite among users because it not only allows you to text from your computer, you can also schedule messages, text from Gmail, and check your phone’s battery level on your PC. First, you need to install MightyText on both your phone and your computer for it to work properly. Next, link your computer and your phone by creating an account. Make sure you sign in using the same email account on the computer and phone versions of the app. After that, you’re all set to start using MightyText to send messages from your computer.
DeskSMS isn’t limited to a single computer, but rather it lets you send and receive texts wherever you can open a browser. Using this app, you can send and receive text messages in your email as well as receive notifications in your Chrome or Firefox browser. To set up MightyText you first install the app on your phone and give it permissions. Next, you can authenticate your Google account, so the app has permission to send your texts as chats, emails, or notifications in the system.
Like the other two apps, AirDroid lets you send and receive text messages on multiple screens and devices. To use it, you first want to download AirDroid both onto your computer and your phone. After you follow the instructions from the set-up wizard, the system will ask you to “Sign Up” for an account. Once you’ve done that, open the app on your Android and sign in again. A prompt on your phone will take you through the last steps of set-up, and then you’ll be ready to text on your computer.
