Apple have just announced Mountain Lion OS, which will be coming to us pretty soon. It will be a refresh with some very cool updates, almost integrating iOS into Mac OS.
One of the update is an App – Messages. Messages is almost like iMessage in iOS, but more powerful. In Messages App, you can not only send unlimited iMessages to any iOS/Mac users, you can now also chat via gtalk, Yahoo! Messager or even Jabber. But of course, the killer feature is iMessage.
Send iMessage to anyone holding on to iOS Devices via your Mac
So what does this means? It means you can virtually reply messages to anyone who is using iPhone via your Mac, you don’t even need to talk your iPhone to do that. How cool is that? Ever seen the launch of Whatsapp, iMessages and so on, I have been thinking, why am I still restricted in replying to my friends via my iPhone since I already have a Mac infront of me. Going back to iPhone to reply a message honestly breaks my workflow.
What I think about Messages
With Apple’s new Message Client on Mac, I can reply to any iMessage I receive, I can even do FaceTime, send photos and video over to any iOS devices! How cool is that? I have been testing it for awhile, it has been pretty good, although I have encounter some issues off and on, but it is still in beta.
You can download beta Messages App now from Apple’s website and give it a try now!
