Can you get iMessage on Windows 10

iMessage is exclusive for the following Apple devices: iPhones, iPods, iPads, Macs, and Apple Watches. It does not offer a cloud-based solution similar to Android where you can load up a webpage and respond to texts.

However, there are a couple of ways to work around this so that you can get iMessage on a Windows 10 PC. This article will guide you in various methods to beat the Apple restriction.

Method 1: Using Google Chrome Remote Desktop

This method requires you to have a Mac and a Windows 10 PC. If you do, follow these steps:

On your Mac

  • Download Google Chrome for macOS.
  • Sign in to Google Chrome with your Google account.
  • Install the Chrome Remote Desktop extension.
  • Enter chrome://apps in the browser’s address bar and click on the Chrome Remote Desktop icon.
  • In the pop-up window, click the ‘Get Started’ button in ‘My Computers’.
  • Select ‘Accept and Install’ to acquire the necessary host software; Chrome Remote Desktop Host Installer.
  • Locate the downloaded dmgfile and open it. This file contains the Chrome Remote Desktop Host package that you need to install.
  • After installation, re-launch the Chrome Remote Desktopextension again.
  • Click the ‘Enableremote connections’ button.
