The new mysms Chrome Extension is one of the simplest ways to send and receive text messages in your Chrome browser. It is directly connected to your Android phone and notifies you on your incoming messages and calls.


What’s new for you?

The installation of the Chrome Extension creates an icon next to the address bar. This icon shows a badge counter as soon as a message or call reaches your phone.

Additionally the Chrome Extensions comes with a popup that appears when you receive a message or a (missed) call. The popup is super convenient as it lets you directly delete or mark messages as read and you can answer or dismiss a call. (If you do not want to receive this popup, just right-click on it and choose “Disable notifications from mysms”.)

How do you get the Extension?

In the Chrome Web Store you will find the mysms Chrome Extension for download. Regular web app users will recognize the interface. Please use your existing mysms account (or the Google Account you used for the registration) for the login.


Are you new to mysms?

mysms uses your existing Android phone number to send and receive messages and syncs your existing contacts and SMS from your Android phone to your Chrome browser.


Therefore, please download mysms on your Android phone first and register for a new account. You can use this account to log in to the mysms Chrome Extension. As texts from Chrome are sent via your Android, your phone needs to be on and must be connected to the internet (mobile data connection or WiFi).


Why should you use mysms in your browser?

Get access to your messages from your phone and benefit from a larger keyboard while you are working on your computer. You can read and reply to your messages or start a new conversation in your browser, without even touching your phone.


But it’s not only an easy and fast way to send and receive SMS/MMS. It’s also great for being up to date on your calls. You’ll receive alerts when a call reaches your phone and you can access your entire call log from your phone. mysms Premium users have access to even more call features.
