Works very well with windows 11. However... I don't want calls going through my PC. Only want to use the app for text messages. Turned off the phone capability in the PC software. (Made sense, right?) In a virtual meeting and phone starts ringing via PC! 😡 Didn't realize I have to turn the phone off in my phone app as well. Hopefully I've resolved the issue.

Used to work great, although now when I try to open the desktop app (on windows 10) it just won't open. It's still listed as an app and afaik everything is the same on the mobile side, but I can't use it anymore. I am still getting notifications/texts on my computer though, so I actually have no idea what is going on. This is useful, don't get me wrong, but I still can't respond to texts on my computer, I have to use my phone. Luckily in my case my phone is next to my computer, but fair warning.

Clunky App. Syncing on the go is very unreliable and difficult to troubleshoot. Refuses to work on more than one computer. Does work well on one computer, but useless when traveling. Thanks for the reply. What you say didn't work. Pointing to a bad help page, but not actually helping, doesn't help with the problem. Just adds to frustration.
