Motorola Connect, a Chrome extension/Android app combo that allows you to receive and respond to text messages (see incoming calls too) through your computer’s browser, has been down for the last few days. Both forums and reviews for the apps are showing that the outage started just before the weekend and has yet to return. Users have tried to uninstall and re-install apps, disconnect phones, and any other trick you can think of, yet the service still isn’t working.
We have reached out to Motorola hoping to find out more info. Once we have more, we will update this post.
If you are seeing issues with Motorola Connect, be sure to let us know.
Update: It seems that the service is working for some and not for others. Still waiting to hear back from Motorola.
Update 2: Motorola has confirmed that the service was out for a small set of users but has since been restored. If you are still seeing issues, head into Settings -> Motorola Connect and toggle the service off/on again.
