We use Pushbullet at work a fair bit, handy for sending out information from other documents, emails and spreadsheets. Had this come online for us on Wednesday and works great, wifi or mobile data.
Good for viewing MMS on larger screens when required.

@kryptonjohn lucky you.  it's not working for everyone yet. 

 

 

 

 

I wonder if it has anything to do with using non-standard ROMs? I'm on Superman ROM for my S7 Edge, and it hasn't upgraded, despite me only checking it 5-10 times a day...

Its a feature 'switched on' not related to an update. We had multiple phones on the same version but my phone was available Wednesday, others in the office Thursday.

Aaaaaand it's here. Pretty smooth. Would be nice if it had some sort of notification thingy other than the phone, though.

Notification that it was available, or on the PC. I receive notifications on the PC, pop ups are available.

Yep I get a desktop notification of an SMS arriving too. Is that a Chrome thing rather than IE?

I finally got it overnight.  Does what it says on the tin :)  Wish iMessage had a web interface now that it has iCloud Messages support!

In addition to getting notifications for SMS arrival, I am also getting notifications for 'battery low' and 'no wifi connected'...

Anyone know if messages is integrated into the google home device yet?

 

Seems the next logical step to allow you to send a text from your google home device without the IFTTT or other workarounds.

My eyes might be deceiving me... but I can't see a way of adding a contact card to a message on the new Messages app... there's a big plus button which gives you access to emojis, camera, gifs, "stickers", location and microphone, but not contacts. Along with photos, contacts would be the thing I most commonly attach to an SMS message.

I have it on my Nexus 6 running Nitrogen so it's not a ROM issue.
