However for those who still need to reply SMS, there aren’t too many options out there for replying from the PC, but Microsoft is hoping to change that. Spotted by Windows Blog Italia (via Engadget), it appears that Microsoft is testing out a new feature for Skype on the PC that will allow users to reply text messages on their phone via their computers.
Microsoft has since confirmed the feature via the official Skype Insider Twitter account where they are dubbing the feature “SMS Connect”. At the moment it is only available for Skype Insiders so if you’re not part of the program, then we guess you won’t be able to take advantage of it just yet.
It also seems to be only available on Android where the feature has also been spotted for Skype Preview on Android. No word on when the feature will be made available to all or if it will arrive for iOS, but it could be a handy feature worth keeping an eye out for.
