Why Choose Android Messages Desktop Client?
It is a very logical question as to why you want to make the shift to a third-party app from an official solution. Firstly, Android Messages only officially supports a web browser based tool whereas with this, you don’t need to have a seperate tab open to address messages from your PC.
Moreover, features such as notifications is something which hasn’t been made available on the official solution. All in all, this solution is perfect for users who aren’t keen on opening a web browser just to see their text messages or want the flexibility of a program window for their messages app.
