Cannot click on hyperlinks in messages! Or copy and paste. Was working fine until I changed my phone and phone link updated. Having the same issues as others with duplicate messages being sent, first one shows as failed, then another shows being sent. I always still have to check my phone to see if the messages were sent or not. Already tried the Feedback hub. No responses.

This app barely functions. It will say my phone is not connected while it proudly states that it is connected in its status bar. When I follow the trouble shooting steps, they do not remotely resemble anything I see on the app or my computer. It does many more things than I am interested in. I just want to send and receive texts on my computer. Below, more useless troubleshooting steps and insulting assumption that I do not have the app installed correctly. Desperate for more stars.

Works like it says. I can put my phone on the charger and use my pc with direct remote access. It does not work the other way around, I can't look at my pc from my phone. But if I get a text or a call I can click my screen from the ole pc while I'm doing other work. Even access my wifi remotes for smart devices. Just very useful!
