The issue that I have found with the website is that it logs out all the time. There is a time limit for non use. It does not help as a monitor for messages. I can log in and then send a message, but often I will receive messages while working.
What is the ETA on working Windows 10 PC software? I also just moved to a new laptop and now can't get the app. Messaging from the PC is a critical piece of functionality and the Message+ app has been an issue for more than 6 months now. Is Verizon not capable of having a working Windows 10 app for messaging? It makes the whole company look foolish. The Verizon website is also still littered with wrong instructions. This needs to be escalated and fixed. It can't be that hard.
I'm shocked and appalled that Verizon would allow someone to post a link to an .exe from dropbox on their forums. I believe you really are trying to help, but man that's a lot of liability for them.
That said, there's a GREAT solution. If you like it, you can maybe add it to your previous posts as an option to the download.
Applicationize turns a page into an app that runs in your task bar.
1. download google chrome
2. go to https://applicationize.me/now (THIS IS FREE)
3. Under Web APP URL paste this URL:
4. Click (advanced options) beneath that and select the first 2 toggles (open links internally and Send notifications).
5. generate and download the extension
6. follow the rest of the instructions.
*When complete, the app will automatically run. Be sure you PIN it to your taskbar.
Let me know this worked for you!
Message+ on my Android phone works great for texting, but on my Mac desktop, it's a dog. This problem is nearly universal among Verizon customers who've used both.
On my Macbook Pro, Message+ is stinky slow. The Beachball of Doom continuously revolve while I try to enter text or as my Mac tries to figure out what to do with another Message+ function. This problem is universal. For most Mac users, once Message+ is installed on a desktop Mac, Message+ runs so poorly it's earned for itself the Apple Store's lowest rating I've even seen for an allegedly "mature" product: 1.4 out of 5, with hundreds of reviews. Verizon's only reply apparently is, "Contact Support so we can deal with it."
And then it never does. It's almost time to find another texting application or another phone company.
PS I've personally spoken with Verizon's VP of Technology and Verizon's product lead, even its Laboratory, each time making the case for a working texting solution -- either they're not listening or the message isn't getting through: Message+ stinks. Verizon (if anyone still works there), do something about it!
When trying to open this after downloading it says there is not an app associated with the link you posted.
Is your download adding/removing the extension? What is the name of the file you downloaded and trying to run?
