    Sorry, I meant to type 3.3.044.


    I finally received the new Messages For Web option this afternoon. Synced right up with my Chromebook and it's pretty cool. Not the greatest tech advancement in modern history, but cool. I can see where this will be handy at times. Good job Google!

    <Sigh> Still no love from Google for me. :(

    I know what's going on too. Google knows that I'm on vacation next week. So they're going to wait until I'm away from my computer to flip my switch o_O

    If you are daring, you can try removing your Google account from your phone > reboot a d re-add your Google account. Some have said that "forces" the flip. But....it also removed all downloaded music and you have to make sure all Google products & apps are syncing correctly again. Hard to say if that's worth it or not?

    I got it yesterday also didn't turn it on till this morning. very easy startup. Sent message from my ipad and replied to the response from my PC desktop, Yah! Now I can text and respond via my ipad. this in itself is worth the install.
    BTW, I have been waiting for a message update notice since reading about the feature and have not gotten one. I do not auto update so I see what needs updating and choose wheather or not to do so. Just happened to open messages yesterday and the message for web choice was there. My messages app updated some time ago but the feature didn't show up. There must be something to the "Google must activate for your account" theory after all

    Yeah Google activates it. But the mms thing is some kind of workaround I guess.

    Also cool to use another phone. My pixel don't have a sim as it is just a alarm clock with WiFi. But wanted to try and see if it would work. So went to the site on my pixel so i can't get my pixel 2 xl messages. Works great. So if my pixel 2 xl is on the charger for the night I can see what's being sent and respond.

    I charge my pixel 2 xl on the counter in the living room next to my keys and wallet.

    Has anyone figured out that many of the Hangouts Easter eggs also work with Web Messages? Apparently, here are some of the ones that do work:

    To execute these commands on Android Messages, just type a forward slash and then the word you want to use. They only work at the beginning of messages though.

    /shrug or /shruggie — ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    /sunglasses or /dealwithit — ( •_•) ( •_•)>⌐■-■ (⌐■_■)

    /tableflip — (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

    /tableback — ┬─┬ ノ( ゜-゜ノ

    /that — (☞゚ヮ゚)☞

    /this — ☜(゚ヮ゚☜)

    /wizard — (∩ ` -´)⊃━━☆゚.*・。゚

    /yuno — ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

    /success — (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑

    /happy — ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

    /facepalm— (-‸ლ)

    /disapprove — ಠ_ಠ

    /algebraic — | ( •◡•)| (❍ᴥ❍ʋ)

    /praisethesun — \`[-|-]/

    Yesterday I started having messages problems, while using my phone and attempting to send text I get message that it did not send tap to retry. I uninstalled and reinstalled but same issue persist. I enabled Verizon message + this morning and will use till issue is resolved. Anyone else have this happen?

    I haven't run into that issue yet, I have had it synced with my phone for a few hours this morning. I have been texting with family cross country, using my Chromebook, without issues
