Thankfully, Google has now finally rolled out the “Messages for web” feature to its Android Messages app with version no. 3.3.043. Now with the new feature you can send and receive texts messages from your computer. But how would you do that? Well, the process is pretty simple.

Additionally, you can also enable the ”Remember this computer” option to easily access the Messages for Web on your PC.

Moreover, the new features of the Android Messages App not only let you send or receive texts on your PC, it also includes some other features which have been integrated with the latest update, such as the Smart Reply, Ability to Send GIF Image, Ability to Automatically Preview Links within the Message.

And the last one which I found really helpful is the ability to copy one-time password or code from a secure site directly from the message with a tap. That means now you no longer need to open full message to copy the OTP.
