In times today, where almost everyone has got their hands on an apple phone and got addicted to the easy-to-use features it holds, it becomes extremely annoying to switch back to the regular software while working on a Windows PC. One solution to this problem can be purchasing an Apple computer, but considering its budget, it might break your pocket down! I have got a simple way out instead, and that is getting iMessage on your pc!
Sounds amazing, no? So, without any further ado, let us quickly get onto the step by step guide regarding how to get iMessage on Windows PC. Let’s go!
Guide to Getting IMessage on your PC:
Multiple features of the IMessage app has made people fond of getting it onto their PC’s. They exist 3 basic ways which you can adopt to get this perfect application on your Windows PC and enjoy its versatility to the extremes!
Method A: For the iPhone users
If you are not concerned about your iPhone’s warranty getting void, you can surely give this method a try. It might be a bit complicated for those not good at using a computer, but this guide below will definitely make a way out for you. This method is called jailbreaking your iOS, which basically frees your phone from all kinds of barriers it is bound to follow.
STEP 1: Initially, you will have to install Cydia onto your windows PC. Cydia is an app store that contains all the applications that Apple has approved and as well as those which it has disapproved. It provides great flexibility when you get it on your phone and helps you make changes, which apple would not allow you to make easily.
STEP 2: Open up, Cydia. Look out for remote messages. You might have to make a purchase over here, but do not worry, it is not costly at all. Invest $4 and purchase the remote messages from the BigBoss repo.
STEP 3: Now, you will see a new interface which is controlled by the web, opening on your windows, from where you can send messages to your friends having iPhones. Now, connect your phone to the WiFi, and put in your iPhone’s IP address. Also, do not forget to add a port number at the end.
STEP 4: Set up a password that you would use every time you log onto iMessage on windows.
Tedah! It is all done. Now you can simply open any browser on your computer and get access to iMessage remotely but entering the IP address and the port number and giving it the correct passcode. Easy, yet a bit risky method which might put your iPhone at risk when it’s about warranty. Give it a try!
Method B: For the Android Users
No worries if you do not have an iPhone yet! I have discovered another amazing method that will help you get iMessage on pc in a matter of minutes only. Over here, you would need an external source anti-virus software to not let any malware get into your pc and spoil your windows settings. So before following this step, install a good malware resistant application in your windows, and then you’ll be all set to use this method.
STEP 1: Open your browser and install the iPadian Emulator. This is a simulator software that will turn your windows interface into iPhone’s operating system. Not completely, but to the extent you want!
STEP 2: Open the setup file, and after it’s installed, run the emulator on your Windows PC. You will have to accept the terms provided by the software developer, so make sure you tick that box to continue further.
STEP 3: After the installation, you can now launch iPadian software but make you run the antivirus software once before opening this new application on your PC.
STEP 4: Now, use the search bar located at the topmost corner to search for the iMessage application. It is finally the time to download this application before you can begin using it on your pc.
STEP 5: After downloading and installing the iMessage app, you can then launch iMessage on pc. After that, sign up for getting access to thousands of amazing GIF’s and apple’s exciting new emoji collection!
I would suggest you follow this method than any else because it’s quick and would not use much of your energy. There exist one more method, which can get your iMessage on pc in a very short time. Want to know about it? Check out below.
Method C: For the Mac computer users
If you do not have a working mac computer; there is no use reading further because this method requires you to definitely possess good quality and a fine working mac laptop. Another big thumbs down for this procedure is that you will be able to have access to iMessage on pc as long as you have the mac computer operating simultaneously. This means as soon as you lose connection to your mac device, the iMessage app on your windows pc would stop working. A major reason why many people have adopted this method is that it is completely secure. It also would not let any sign of virus reside on your windows.
STEP 1: If you are not using google chrome as your browser, firstly, you will have to install it on your computer. After that, open up the Chrome Web Store and add the Chrome Remote Desktop extension onto your browser.
STEP 2: You will now have to download and install Chrome Remote Desktop on your windows pc. Do not forget to simultaneously add this application to your Mac computer as well.
STEP 3: On your Mac computer, you will see an access code on the remote desktop extension. Now, enter this same code onto your windows PC by opening the remote desktop application.
STEP 4: With a beep, you will now see your computer making a connection with the mac device. When the connection is made, you are all done! You can now freely enjoy the application on your PC! But, make sure to keep the mac computer active alongside; else you will lose the freedom to enjoy the iOS features if the connection gets lost.
My most favorite and feasible method out of these three is Method A; in case if you already have an iPhone. The reason why I preferred it is because it does not harm your windows pc, which Method B may do. Also does not put you in a situation where you depend on a third-party operating system, which Method C involves. Living in a world full of the latest technological inventions, I do not think one should rely on another secondary device for operating a Windows PC.
I have listed a method for every one of you! Whether you are an android user, an iPhone addict, or possess a mac computer. So, follow the method convenient for yourself and have fun using iMessage on pc! You can comment below for queries and concerns, and I will be delighted to help you out. Good luck, iMessaging!
