    I have google voice. it is the number I give people I don't trust with my real number. It forwards all calls to my real number. get emails with voice mail transcripts (which can be pretty funny sometimes) and text messages. you can send from it too. anyway, getting off topic so I will quit there.

    I'll check further into it. I use the number for the same reason -- and because I wanted to keep an out-of-state friend from paying long distant fees when she was living.
    Back to Messages on the computer. It's really pretty cool! The contacts are the same as my phone, but attachment options are from the computer. I like that option! I bet I will use this when I'm home!

    My wife's Z2 Play just got the app update. Cool. Nothing for me yet. And of course, the APK I installed from APK Mirror wouldn't even register in the Play Store to receive updates. . I uninstalled all app Updates and updated to the Play Store version before the one with Web Messages. One of these days I'll learn to stick to the Play Store. . Probably not.

    Sometimes ignorance is bliss. Sometimes.

    Thanks for the update! . It sounds like Google has a good start on an all-in-one messaging service for the future.

    Yep. People are frantic over not getting the app update on some other Forums. Apparently people have been waiting a while (impatiently) for this.

    I don't understand the importance (or excitement) over this, but maybe I'm just showing my age...

    The reason I'm looking forward to it... I work from home in front of my computer all day. It's beneficial to able to pop into another window to read and respond to text messages (with a real keyboard) vs. having to dig my phone out of my pocket or off the charger.. or go find it on the kitchen table...or.... well you get the point. ;)

    Thanks @radon222. I was thinking that might be part of the appeal. It was helpful to me last night while I was in my laptop.

    For me, I spend a few hours each Saturday & Sunday morning working on either my laptop or Chromebook and usually have some music playing on my phone via my JBL Soundboost mod. It will be nice to have a Chrome tab open and deal with new texts that way and leave the phone alone playing some tunes. Is that "critical" functionality? Nope. I've lived without it this long. Will it be "nice" to have? Yep, at times. But I'm sure as hell not gonna act all frantic & pissed off because I don't have the app update yet....like I saw on another forum last night.
