The option is already available to Android users, and now iPhone users will also gain a seamless experience with iMessage on Windows computers.
The Phone Link app for Windows lets users respond to texts, track calls, and view incoming notifications on their computers. Even while going out with a different phone, users can keep up with their calls, texts, and notifications on iPhones on their computers.
