how do I text from a PC?
There are two ways. If you use Messages by Google, go to https://messages.google.com/web/authentication to text on your computer with Messages for web. You can also use Republic Anywhere:
Hope this helps!
Although you can still download and use Republic Anywhere, developers are no longer working on bug fixes or updates, so you get what you get. I recommend what was said above: Google Messages. That’s the best and easiest way.
This is definitively correct in terms of updates and/or new features and may now be true for bug fixes. For what it’s worth, there have been several bugs squashed after active development stopped.
I still like Anywhere. Messages for Web is OK but unlike Anywhere my phone must be on and connected to the Internet for it to work. With Anywhere my phone could be at the bottom of the ocean and I would still have access to text messaging on alternate devices.
Good point there!
