This article describes how to send text from a machine to an iOS or Android smartphone. Instructions refer to macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android. Additional knowledge covers how to sync texts between your smartphone, web browser, and desktop PC using Pushbullet.

How to Text From Device Using iMessage (iOS & MacOS) (iOS & MacOS)
Apple’s iMessage service has long been the common way to send messages between iPhones, and now you can even send them from your Mac device. All you need is the Messages app on your iPhone and Mac, and an Apple ID. Make sure to sign in with the same Apple ID you use with Messages on your iPhone and other devices. To use this feature, you’ll need iOS 8 or later on your iPhone and OS X Yosemite or later on your Mac. It’s also compatible with Apple Watches running watchOS 1.0 or later.
Send Text From Device Using Android Messages (Android & Web Browsers) (Android & Web Browsers)
You can send and receive text messages, images, voice messages, and videos using Android Messages on your smartphone and desktop. To connect the mobile app and the web version:

  • Open the Messages app on your mobil
  • Tap the More options menu (three vertical dots), then tap Messages for the site.
  • Android Messages count against your texting plan; the app doesn’t use info, and the receiver doesn’t need to have the app.
  • Visit on your device using one of the following browsers: Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer isn’t sponsored.
  • On your Android smartphone, tap Scan QR code and aim it at the QR code shown on the screen.
  • Pick Yes under Remember this machine if you’re using a trusted system, so you just have to do this once. Then you can opt into desktop updates if you like, and you’ll see your text history on the tab.

Sync Text Messages Using Pushbullet (Android, iOS & Web Browsers) (Android, iOS & Web Browsers)
Pushbullet syncs your texts between your mobile, web browser, and desktop PC; it also lets you share websites and photos from your smartphone to your device (or several computers) and vice versa.

There are Pushbullet applications for Android, iOS, and Windows PCs. Pushbullet also works for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera browsers.

  • Download the mobile app on your phone and the desktop app on your device.
  • Sign in to each app with your Google or Facebook account to connect them together, and you’ll start seeing text messages pop up on your desktop that you can respond to; you can initiate texts, too.

To verify whether the alerts are working, go to Mirroring in the mobile Android app and tap Submit test notification. It should show up on both your phone and computer and dismissing the warning on either system should also dismiss it from the other.

Send a Text Using Cortana (Android & Windows 10) (Android & Windows 10)Android users with Windows 10 PCs can also text from their computer:

  • Install the Cortana app on your Android smartphone. Tap Settings > Alerts > Cortana and activate.
  • Go into Settings and click on Send notifications between devices. Optionally, you can also let Use Cortana Even When My System is Locked.
  • Activate Cortana by selecting within the search box in the Taskbar, then select the Notebook icon. You’re now in Cortana’s settings.
  • Enable Cortana by saying “Hey Cortana” and say, for example, “Text Douglas” or type SMS Douglas, then talk or type your message, and state or select Send.

You’ll get a desktop notification when you get an email, and you can type your reply in the notification window.
