Google has at last begun testing the Chrome OS platform’s Android Messages integration, which has been in progress for a long while. As indicated by Chrome Unboxed, a few clients who approach the Chrome OS developer channel are as of now observing an alternative to activate a component that will enable them to send and get instant messages from their Chromebooks.
It’s not by any stretch of the imagination clear what the full prerequisites are to have the capacity to get to the component. A portion of the individuals who could activate it have Pixelbooks, however somewhere around one individual who could switch it on has a Samsung Chromebook Plus.
The individuals who do gain admittance to Android Messages integration can discover the choice to set up messaging integration under the Connected Devices menu of Chrome OS, where it’s currently packaged with Instant Tethering and Smart Lock.
If you have a Pixel 2 or a Pixel 2XL device, a Chromebook and the guts to try out the Chrome OS dev channel, you might be able to test it out, as well.
As part of Google’s suite of “Better Together” features (which is marketed simply as “Android phone”), the Messages feature lets you send and receive text messages from your Chromebook even if you don’t have the Android Messages web client open.
This is possible because the Android Messages app will be installed as a Progressive Web App, which has now gone live today along with the Better Together features on the Google Pixelbook.
Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for the feature to come out — the good news is that we now have proof that Google hasn’t abandoned the project.
