Other methods of sending messages from Windows or Mac
If you are a Facebook user, you can message any of your friends by logging into Messenger.com. If you use WhatsApp, there is WhatsApp Web.
If you’re an iPhone user who also has a Mac, you can use the Messages app on your Mac, or if you’re on a Windows PC, your iPad might allow you to access iMessage.
Sending an email to SMS gateways allows you to send text messages through your regular email client, but they’re mostly paid services used for mass marketing messages in the UK. A better option is to use a free app like MightyText, which can send text messages from PC to phone.
