How To Use iMessage on Your Windows PC

So, you want iMessage for Android or Windows? Read this guide

How To Use iMessage on Your Windows PC

With the fresh updates to iMessage, many iPhone and other iDevice users want access to iMessage on their personal or workplace computers, so chatting with friends and family continues on all types of devices–at home and work.

So, you want iMessage for Android or Windows? Unfortunately, you’re out of luck. Apple’s Messages app works only on Apple devices. No third-party apps can connect to iMessage.

Apple doesn’t offer Messages on the web, either. That’s a shame—it could be part of the iCloud website like iCloud Drive, Notes, and Find My iPhone are.

So how do you get iMessage on your Android device or PC?

Sadly, there’s no way to run iMessage on a PC. Luckily, some good alternatives have similar functionality.

How to Use iMessage on Android (with a Mac)

If you own a Mac and have an Android phone, here’s a solution you can look into. AirMessage promises “iMessage for Android,” and it delivers. It’s a little complicated, though, and involves conscripting a Mac you own to function as a server.

Follow the steps outlined below to use iMessage on Android:

Step 1: Install the AirMessage server on your Mac. That Mac must remain running and connected to the internet at all times. You then install the AirMessage app on your Android phone

Step 2: You can access iMessage through AirMessage on Android—your Mac does the heavy lifting; the AirMessage app communicates with it. As the device that’s actually connected to iMessage, your Mac is just sending messages back and forth.

How To Use iMessage on Your Windows PC

What About a Browser-Based iMessage?

You’d think Apple would have an online browser-based service for iMessage, so checking in no matter where we are is easy. But alas, there currently is no service for getting iMessages online!

The conventional thought is that Apple wants to keep its services limited to its own iDevices and Mac computers. That leaves millions of us, maybe even billions of us in the dark, unable to access iMessage when we are at work or using our home Windows PC.
