This morning, Pushbullet announced “the last missing feature” for users, MMS support. Once updated on all of your platforms (Android, Windows, Chrome extension), sending picture messages should be just as easy doing it on any other messaging service. On a desktop, you simply drag and drop an image into a chat window or use the paperclip icon for attachments. Do note, Pushbullet requires your device to run Android 5.0+ in order for this feature to work properly.
In addition to MMS support for computers, Pushbullet states they have added improved SMS reliability. In order to do so, the company have rebuilt their texting system. “We now reliably sync outgoing text messages with your phone, ensuring that your messages will reliably send as soon as possible (even if they can’t be sent immediately).” If your smartphone is offline, or if there is another reason your device can’t speak to the Pushbullet servers, the text remains queued and gets sent out as soon as possible.
Updates for the Android app, Chrome extension, and Windows desktop app are rolling out automatically, so be on the lookout. To grab the Android update, follow the Google Play link below.
