Microsoft is yet to roll out a universal messaging app that allows you to see the messages on your PC which you received on your Phone. The app is expected to be a true universal app, but till then, let’s take a look at the “Windows Phone Message Backup” App.
This app lets you view all your SMS on the phone to your Windows 10 PC or Tablet, and hence is named Message Backup app. Below is the list of features:
- Gives you detailed access to those messages.
- You can browse and export all the messages you’ve sent or received. It supports normal SMS text messages, picture messages, group messages, video messages, etc.
- You can export messages and conversations as plain text or as a picture.
- You can search messages, force a refresh, export as XML.
While the app does not allow you to send text notifications, the developer is working on a push notification that will alert you when you are busy on your desktop. The app also requires you to use the same Microsoft account on your phone and Text Message Backup enabled, which can be don’t from the settings.
Once you sign-in with the same account, all the messages will start downloading, and once it completes, you will have access to all messages, including the conversations. This is definitely an amazing app for all those who need to keep track of SMS from a PC.
