Pushbullet for Android has enabled seeing and replying to individual text messages for a while now. It’s one of our most popular features. Today, we’re turning texting from your computer into an amazing experience:
Instead of replying to individual messages, Pushbullet now has a full messaging experience for SMS that’s synced with your phone. This means you can comfortably text from your PC while at work, then pick up the conversation later on your phone and all of your messages will be right where you expect them to be.
We released our largest update ever earlier this week. The update made some significant changes to Pushbullet. We knew many of them were great improvements, but as with any big change, we were bound to get some things wrong.

With the Pushbullet Mac app, you can easily drag-and-drop files to get them onto your phone (or tablet, or even another computer). Today, we’ve now made this even easier–just right-click on a file, then just select Pushbullet in the Share menu! Here’s how it looks, using Yosemite’s new Share Extension support:
