Messaging has become the norm in our hectic lives, it would be an exceptional day — for most of us — to have more calls than messages. We’re in group chats galore, we’re spread across multiple messaging options and we feel disconnected without our phones. The likes of Google Messages already has a web version for you to connect your phone to, Samsung has now followed suit for Windows users.
The Samsung Messaging app is now in the Microsoft App Store for Windows, with some users getting push notifications about the new app. This allows users to connect their Samsung account and message directly from their PC. Being a regular; ok heavy user of messaging apps, there is a huge convenience factor to having notifications and the capacity to respond in front of you all day.
This is also a clever move from Samsung to keep users on their platform. It offers an option across all Samsung devices instead of moving to other options like Telegram, Signal or even Google Messages. The biggest question for users who use messaging heavily is: Is the convenience of an installed app on your PC, better than moving forward with RCS in Google Messages?
