How to get text messages on your Mac

Over the years lots of iPhone and iPad apps have made it over to the Mac, including Notes, Maps, Photos, iBooks and Messages. Using the Messages app on the Mac it is possible to send and receive SMS text messages and iMessages without even getting your iPhone out of your bag.

There are actually two different types of messages you can send and receive on your Mac. iMessages are sent via Apple's servers, and normal text messages are routed via your iPhone. In this article we show how to send and receive both.
Click on the Messages icon in the Dock at the bottom of the screen (it's a blue speech bubble), or search by pressing Cmd + Space bar and start to type Messages.
Sign in using the Apple ID that's associated with your iPhone.
Select the new message icon (the square icon beside the Search field).
Place your cursor in the To: field and type the phone number or email address for the friend you wish to contact (the email address should be one they use for iMessage). Press enter.
Alternatively, if you've synced your Contacts file with your Mac you should be able to click on the + sign to add people from your Contacts.
If your friend has an iPhone you can tell because their number will gain a blue box. This means they will receive your text as an iMessage, sent via Apple's servers. (Note that an iMessage sent this way may arrive on your friend's phone with your Apple ID email address as the identifier rather than your phone number. It depends on whether your contact details are set up on their phone.)
If your friend is able to receive iMessages simply type your message in the field marked iMessage. When you're finished, press return to send it.Once you've logged into your Apple ID in Messages on your Mac you will be able to receive iMessages sent by your iPhone-using friends. The messages will also appear on your iPhone so there will be continuity.
