Texty is the missing link between Android phones and macOS for text messaging.

Now it's possible to text on your Mac with a native app that's always available. It upgrades Google Messages into a full app with deep integration into the macOS technologies to make a truly unique experience.

No matter where you are along as you have a WiFi connection, you can send and receive texts on your Mac which are synced to your Android phone.

The app along with notifications is completely free. Upgrade to a Pro subscription for a small yearly fee and enjoy the following extra features:

• Reply to a message from inside the notification. This allows texting back and forth without leaving the current app.

• Unread message count displayed in the Dock icon.

• Automatic switching between dark/light modes for Google Messages to match the system appearance.

• Choose from a curated list of sounds for new message notifications.

• Right click the Dock icon to quickly start a new message.

• Zoom in/out between 50-300%.

Almost perfect

Love the app, just what I was looking for, can you add the ability to resize the window, I wish I did not have to resize the window every time I open the app. Other than that, everything else is perfect.

Exactly what I was looking for

This has the exact functions I was looking for. Works great with my Samsung S20 . I was mainly looking for something that showed notifications in the dock, opened at startup, and had had the same functionality of Messages on the Web. This has all that, plus more. Totally worth the few dollars a year for all the extra features too!

Nifty app

Much better alterntive than trying to message on a phone, especially with attachments. You've got the whole screen of a desktop. Bit of a wrinkle in the trial was quickly solved with exceptional support from the developer, Tunabelly Software.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the nice review and kind words! We're super happy that you're enjoying being able to text on your Mac instead of on a small screen. 😉
