Textra for PC/desktop

Will Textra ever consider building a PC version of the app so users can read SMS on a desktop computer? That would be so great!

    agreed, textra for android is so great but I can't use it at the same time as Google Messages, so I don't

    I vote also for this function. I have Textra Pro and I will pay some extra money for Pro plus desktop.

    I think PushBullet lets u get Textra messages to ur PC... but yeah its another 3rd party app =(

    Yes Textra, PLEEEEEEEEAAAAASSSSSSSSSEEE offer up a desktop app for Windows!!

    If Google's Android Messages can do it, you can do it better!!!!!!! I'm not even using Textra anymore because of this issue. I know you can make a great one, but you have to actually do it or else it won't matter and you will lose more customers like me who don't want to go away, but love the convenience of a desktop app FAR too much to come back until one is available for Textra.

    I would pay for this extension if they offered it. What say you Textra? Anonymous posted this in 2017!!! C'mon Textra. We are willing to give you money for this option.

    I'm not a web designer/programmer by any means, but I can't imagine it'd be too difficult to build a Chrome extension, call it Textra for Web, like Google did for Android messages, but obviously much, much better.

    This is one of the only apps that I daily with that isn't built by Google, which says a lot. Best messaging app on the market. Web access would just be the icing on the cake.

    Is there a good PC app that keeps the messages private, requiring a log in? I've tried Mighty SMS and Others but it seems to pop them up all the time and I don't want colleagues to read my texts.

    Textra SMS is a great app, but for me receiving/sending from my PC is the missing part.
    I would be ready to pay a one time fee for this feature.

    The official Messages app from Google has this feature now ( but I prefer Textra cutomization features.

    With a little more looking, I find that Textra is compatible with Mighty Text. For me, that works well.

    I legit came to this page while looking to see if Textra had this feature. Using Messages on my phone in the meantime. I'd totally buy the full version if this was a thing.

    switched to message by google for this feature on one of my phones, still love textra but man it feels like the apple iphone story. first very innovative in front of everyone then not so much. they got to get to next level. still no backing up of settings, switch phones and find yourself with no blacklist and all settings wiped the f out.. and yes, i am paid version for life

    I'd easily pay for this feature if it were offered by Textra.

    With this, Textra would be the complete texting program and best overall.
    Please add this.
