How to text from Windows 10 using an Android phone

Image
Messaging is one feature Apple does well. With an iPhone linked to Apple’s cloud, you can send and receive messages from any other Apple device. Windows 10 takes a slightly different path now that Windows 10 Mobile – which hasn’t received new features since 2017 – reaches its end-of-life in December.  We show you how to text from Windows 10 using an Android phone.For some time, you could text from Windows 10 using Cortana.
