In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to natively message from your Mac using your Android phone with the app SMS Integration with iChat. The messages app typically doesn’t support Androids, but this tutorial will get it working for you.

NOTE: The giveaway for this app has ended, so there are no more free codes. There still is, however, a great app you should check out.

Wait . Don’t buy this application. I installed the trial version which allows me to send 5 text messages which is not enough for me I decided to purchase the lifetime membership for $129 which allows me to send SMS am a MMS unlimited message to anyone, the application worked great and I was so excited because moving from Apple iPhone to an android phone was a hit and miss and I miss some of the features that I had with my iPhone like Imessage, FaceTime etc. etc. however the app started crashing when I sent more than 25 messages in 30 minute time frame. I immediately sent an email to their support team and they responded back by saying you’re sending too many text messages. The response was extremely vague and then I immediately felt that this company is BS. I requested A refund and they did not respond to any of my email until I contacted Google support and requested a refund and dispute with Google however google told me to go pound sand and to contact the developer directly, I contacted the developer again and I finally got a response and they told me due to the term of services. will be sharing a youtube review with screenshot on this app soon. don’t buy
