Samsung Messaging app for Windows 10 has been spotted on Microsoft Store under the ‘Utilities & tools’ category. The listing was first spotted by a Twitter user and later reported by Windows Central as the listing is still very much up, alive, and running for the eligible devices.
The description of the app explains the purpose of launching this app. Samsung is helping you to send and receive SMS text between your contacts seamlessly without the need for any third-party software. As described on Microsoft Store, the participating devices must be capable of using mobile data (5G and 4G). The listing clearly mentions only some Samsung models can run this app. These include Galaxy TabPro S, Galaxy Book 10.6 LTE, Galaxy Book 12 LTE, Galaxy Book 2, and “NT930QCA,” possibly the Galaxy Flex 2 5G.
It appears the product is not fully ready, as the tech publication that first picked this story points out. This is apparent from the fact that the Galaxy Flex 2 5G is listed with a product code rather than its name. Currently, the “Download” button is active on the app’s listing, suggesting it is not yet available for download for any region. There is a “Redeem a code” button instead and a small notice above this button reads “Samsung Messaging is currently not available.”
It should also be noted that Samsung hasn’t announced this app yet. So, this is quite possible that the app is not yet fully ready and Samsung has made it available for only a limited number of users as part of beta testing.
The exact details on the working of this app are unknown but it appears the app will allow users to send SMS text messages directly from the PCs, not via their smartphone.
The size of the Samsung Messaging app is 31.83MB. Your system must be running Windows 10 version 18362.0 version or higher to gain this new app. Also, the app supports many languages, which you can see from the list provided inside the app’s description.
