- Advertisement -

Apple has made it simple for iOS users to pick up their conversation on a Mac right where they left off on their iPhone and iPad. This is through the help of iMessage on Mac, which connects both iPhone and iPad together with the Mac.

You can check out our article on how to set up iMessage on Mac. There’s been a lot of questions if it’s possible to use iMessage on a PC. Since Apple has allowed iPhone and iPad users to continue their conversation on a Mac, what will happen to its users that can’t lay their hands on a Mac?

What will happen to its users that can only afford a Windows PC? Do they need to seek an alternative solution to their problem? Fortunately, there are a few available solutions that we will highlight in this article.

How to Get and Setup iMessage On Windows PC

Apple has tried to limit iMessage to itself because this is one service that sets macOS and iOS apart from other platforms.

Or if you are a Windows user and you would like to send and receive iMessage on your PC, there are some options that can help you achieve your set goals.

Note: For this to work perfectly, it’s advisable to have a Mac and you have iMessage already installed it.

Using Remote Access (Chrome Remote Desktop)

Chrome Remote Desktop is the easiest way to access your iMessage from your computer. It has a feature that allows you to connect your PC to your Mac.

While you can use other remote desktops, we will use Chrome Remote Desktop in this article since it’s what we have tested.

Now on your Mac, download and install Chrome Remote Desktop Host Installer, as seen in the image below.

Note: Chrome Remote Desktop gives you access to another computer through Chrome browser so you can easily access your files and apps in a secure manner.

Using Apple’s Messages App (iPadian)

Since most modern computers have become so powerful that they can emulate other operating systems, in this step we will use iPadian to emulate iOS on a Windows PC.

However, since iMessage wasn’t built for any system outside its ecosystem, we can use the emulator that will trick the ‘dmg’ file into running on a Windows PC.

Note: While the first setup may involve both Mac and Windows PC, the second is for those that have no access to a Mac computer but still want to use iMessage on their Windows PC.

iPadian is an iPad emulator/simulator that transforms your Windows PC enabling it to run iOS apps. It’s only handy for those that want to play around iOS apps and games on their PC.

Note: This emulator doesn’t perform consistently because it might flood your computer with malware. So it’s advised you try this at your own risk.

To install Apple’s Message App on Windows PC using iPadian 2, follow the steps below:

  • Download and install iPadian emulator on your PC
  • Launch the emulator/simulator and accept its terms and conditions.
  • After installation is complete, open iPadian on your computer
  • Search for iMessage in the search bar and download it on your computer
  • Once the download is complete, launch the app to start enjoying the iMessage experience on your Windows PC.

Using iMessage on a Windows seem possible now, you might not get the real feel and user experience like gotten from iDevices since iMessage is one of Apple’s way of driving sales for other products.

Hopefully, in the nearest future, Apple will make a change to allow iMessage into other operating systems. Fingers crossed. That said, if you think the experience is not smooth enough, you can try out other messaging applications.
