About this app

DesktopSMS enables you to link your Android phone with your Windows PC, allowing you to synchronize and send SMS messages directly from your computer using your Android device. With our native Windows application, you can browse existing conversations and SMS/MMS messages, and comfortably compose and send messages using your computer keyboard.

Effortlessly search your phone contacts from your desktop and initiate new conversations. You can also view recent call logs to quickly text friends or colleagues who have recently called you.

Need to send group messages? DesktopSMS makes it easy. Simply select contacts or contact groups from your Android device, or copy and paste a list of contacts from your clipboard.

A message queue capable of processing bulk messages even if the client disconnects after enqueuing them. This functionality ensures that all messages are reliably stored and processed, maintaining seamless communication and data integrity regardless of the client's connection status. With this feature, you can be sure that your bulk messages will be handled and delivered to their intended recipients without interruption.

Key features include support for dual SIM phones, connections via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB cable. No need for online registration or internet connection - everything operates locally and anonymously. Enjoy native Windows toast notifications for new SMS/MMS messages, with full support for viewing and saving MMS.

IMPORTANT: To fully utilize this application, you must download the DesktopSMS Client for Windows/PC from DesktopSMS ( for free.

How do I start?
1) Download DesktopSMS Lite from Google Play on the Android device you want to connect.
2) Download and install the latest DesktopSMS Client on your Windows PC.
3) Launch DesktopSMS Lite on your Android device and use the DesktopSMS Client on your PC to pair with your Android device.
4) Your conversations and SMS/MMS messages will start synchronizing with the desktop application.
5) Begin messaging comfortably from your desktop!
6) All messages sent will be delivered via your phone and stored in your phone’s conversation history.

What does 'Lite' mean?
DesktopSMS Lite integrates with your default Android SMS messenger to provide SMS and MMS synchronization with the DesktopSMS Client on Windows. It is not a standalone messenger, which is why it's called Lite. Due to Android system design, only the default SMS messenger can modify the messaging store. This means you can't delete messages or mark them as read from the Lite version, although we aim to offer these features in the future!

Do I need to create online account to use this application?
No, your devices connect locally without using any cloud services.

Great that it works over local connection with lots of options (wifi, bluetooth, usb). Texts are sent successfully but unfortunately are not logged on my mobile device, leaving gaps in the conversation history. Also, conversations on desktop seem to sync oldest to newest, making it take a while to catchup with the most recent contacts/texts.

The app functions as advertised, however I think the app is long in the tooth and needs an upgrade. Many cross platform sms apps now offer texting of images or videos as well as emoji's. The text functionality works but when the phone connects to computer each person I try and text takes a few seconds to refresh before it accepts my new text a little annoying that it doesn't auto sync. As I said "perfectly functional but functionally lacking" at this point!

I find this app to be superior to other desktop programs that allows me to text from my PC. I contacted the developer the day I installed his app and he replied very quickly. Other apps of this type (of which there are not that many) are more expensive to buy the premium versions and still don't offer the potential of what DesktopSMS has in store. I look forward to many new and helpful features in the future.
