Send and Receive SMS from Your Phone Number on Browser
I blog using a laptop in my home. That means I often move from one room to another with my laptop. Unfortunately in such cases, I always forget to carry my phone with me. It gets a little bothersome when I get an SMS and I have to move back to where I left my phone to check who sent me a message.
Mighty Text is a service which allows users to use their own phone number, to send and receive SMS messages from your Chrome browser. Users can also call from their browsers.
- MightyText works only for phones running on Android. Download the Mighty Text App from Google Play.
- Now check out the extension or add-on for your browser. I really liked the fact that it supports Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer 9 and Safari.
- Now the phones numbers needs to be synced to the browser and we are set.
- Whenever a SMS is sent to you number, you will receive a notification on your desktop.
I can also reply to the text messages from my browser. Not just that, I can also call a number from the browser window itself but to speak with the person, one has to get up and reach the phone.
The service at the moment is only available on Android. Try out MightyText if you have a Android phone and do drop in your comments.
