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.
