Apple officially announced yesterday that Messages would be arriving in OS X Mountain Lion, although for those of you who have been diligently following the beta may have already downloaded the Messages beta app. However if you have been putting off doing so, well it seems that you might be out of luck now. According to the folks at Cult of Mac, while the link to the Messages beta app is still available on Apple’s download page, clicking it will take users back to the Mountain Lion page. Perhaps Apple was pleased with the progress of the beta and have already prepared a final version which will be shipping with OS X Mountain Lion this July. However according to some reports, Messages has stopped working for them, so if any of our readers can confirm this, please leave a comment below! In the meantime what do you guys think of Messages on OS X? It really does seem like Apple wants you to stay connected wherever you go!
