It Just Got Way Easier to Text Your Android Friends

Jun 2 2014 - 11:04am

BEST NEWS EVER. Today at Apple's big developer conference, WWDC [1], iPhone users cheered at the company's latest announcement: the ability to text and call any number — even Android ones! — from your Mac desktop. Previously, Messages for Mac was limited to just iMessage [2]. Now, any SMS or text you receive on your iPhone will arrive on your Mac, with the latest operating system, Mac OS X Yosemite.

The same goes for calls. Any incoming calls will appear as a notification on the Mac. You'll see a caller ID and the ability to answer it — right from your computer. Every Mac user who's used Google Voice has a pretty big smile on their face right now. The new feature will arrive soon with the shipment of Mac OS X Yosemite (version 10.10), which will be free for all Mac users this Fall, though developers get the new OS today. Follow us on Twitter [3] for more updates.
