Back in April, Google that they were working on a web interface for Android Messages to allow users to continue their text conversations from their phone on their computers. Now Android Messages for Web is rolling out.

The Android Messages for Web has a similar look and feel to Allo for Web.

To get started, you’ll need the latest version of Android Messages on your phone (but the one that is compatible with Android Messages for Web, is still slowly rolling out), then go to your computer and visit messages.android.com, and you’ll be shown a QR code.

Next, you’ll need to connect your phone, to do this you tap on the three dots menu in the Android Messages app and press Messages for Web and it’ll open up a camera interface to scan the QR code on your computer. After that, you’ll then be able to send and receive texts from your computer.

You’re recent conversations and contacts will be encrypted and cached in your browser. Also, if you don’t use Android Messages for Web for 14 days, you’ll be signed out and have to link it again.

Android Messages for Web works on Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Microsoft Edge.

Google says that Android Messages for Web is rolling out to all users over next week.
