This is no longer in the MS app store or on the Verizon site, that I can find. Where can I get a copy of the install file?

 

 

Thanks!

I hope it will be available on Windows 11 (and, it works).

acraftylady2, we want to make sure that you're able to utilize the Message+ application on your Windows 10 computer. The link is confirmed to be working as intended at this time. Which web browser are you trying to use when clicking the link? what exactly happens after clicking the link?

I am using Chrome and the link is NOT working there are IOS, Iphone and web launch, but NO  desktop windows options!  Received a notice that I had to upgrade - now can't get the application back since I uninstalled what I had previously.  For how long with the last version work?? I will try to get it back?? so frustrating.

I am sad to say that the desktop no longer is compatible. You can use our website here: https://www.verizon.com/support/knowledge-base-94861/  Does this help? -Amber

We want to provide you with the correct information, we do not have a Message + version for Windows 10, you can definitely continue to use the browser version on your My Verizon or through the mobile application.  ~Pam

Well the next step is to go to the Microsoft download center.  Assuming your device is registered...you can download it..however the issues are..the download does not install on PC's

Not exactly true.  Users trying to install the Win10 M+ v3.0.0 from the Microsoft Store are getting various error messages, including 'out-of-date version on primary device'.  Uninstalling/backing off updates of Message+ on the primary device has allowed the successful installation of Win10 M+ after which you can (re)upgrade the mobile app to the current version.  There still are issues with the desktop apps' look and operation.

The link does not work. I have tried to access it with google chrome as well as ms edge. Both browsers take you to a link for apple os. There is nowhere to access an install for Windows 10.

Isn't that a link to Google's Play Store and Message+ for a smartphone?  This thread is about Windows 10 desktop version of the Message+ app.

The only way to get an install file for Message+ for Windows 10 is to get it from users who have saved it in a Dropbox or such location.  Both v1.0.17.0 and v2.0.2.0 are available. There are links to get the files in threads (including this one) discussing this issue.  Verizon removed it from the Windows Store long ago now.

Do you have Windows 10 and did you try to find the app via that link?  If you follow that link you posted, the GET IT NOW button leads to the help pages and eventually back to the same page.  If you click on the DOWNLOAD THE DESKTOP APP, it takes you to a page with options for Android, iOS, Web Client or macOS but NOTHING for Windows.  The desktop app for Windows 10 is NOT accessible via the website or the Windows/MS Store.

Exactly, nothing for Windows 10 that I can find. You would think that since this is the primary Verizon SMS Messaging app they would at least provide an installer for it.

If you've searched this Forum for 'message+ windows 10', you'd find all the discussions regarding issues with the app, specifically syncing messages with integrated devices.  So many, in fact, that they pulled it from the website and Windows/MS store.  Fortunately, the v1.0.17.0 installer file was able to be saved and be shared.  This app does work on Windows 10.

However they sent me a note saying I needed to download the latest version - which I attempted however it requests your phone number and then does not allow you to enter it in any form.  What a mess! Supposedly the older version will not work for much longer???

Sorry don't like it so don't use it.  Guess nothing has changed since last January.

I understand your feelings and not sure about the link, acraftylady2. However, the link provided would be the only way to download the desktop application for Message plus. So since you were asking for where it can be download, please give the link a try. I trust this information is beneficial.

@vzw_customer_support , Your agents are not helping by continually saying we can download the Message+ desktop app for Windows 10 from the website. THERE IS NO OPTION ON THE WEBSITE FOR A SUCCESSFUL DOWNLOAD OF THE WINDOWS 10 DESKTOP APP.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but be ready to PROVE it!
