Windows 11 Launches Limited iMessage Integration

Microsoft has announced that it is rolling out support for iMessage on Windows 11 through its Phone Link app, with some limitations. The feature was previously available in an early preview to Windows Insiders, but it is now available for public use. Phone Link previously worked only with Android phones, but now it also works with iPhones, allowing users to make and receive calls, read and respond to text messages, see notifications, and access their iOS contacts list. However, group messaging conversations and sending/receiving images or videos are not supported. Additionally, the Phone Link features that are supported will only work when the phone is continuously connected to the PC wirelessly via Bluetooth. Despite the limitations, this integration is a small step forward for integrating iPhones and Windows PCs, and it will be welcomed by many people who use both devices. The iPhone is much more popular than the Mac, and there are many people who use a Windows laptop or desktop but also use an iPhone on the go. While Apple has offered apps like iCloud for Windows to handle things like bookmark syncing, this integration will make things more natural for those in this situation.

Windows 11 Launches Limited iMessage Integration

Apple devices have only ever been able to use iMessage, but Microsoft is now providing limited interoperability with Windows 11. Users can now use their Windows PCs to make and receive calls, read and reply to messages, get notifications, and access their iOS contacts list thanks to a new feature that is accessible through Microsoft’s Phone Link software. Users won’t be able to send or receive photographs or videos or take part in group messaging conversations, though. The feature is currently being rolled out, with some users already having access to it and other people getting it in the upcoming weeks. Users will require Windows 11 (not Windows 7, 8, or 10) and iOS 14 or later in order to use Phone Link for iPhone. It’s vital to note that iPads cannot use the feature. Even while this connectivity is minimal, it does provide Windows users who also own iPhones with a minimum level of iMessage involvement.
