Now a days Short Messaging Service is simple! It is very fast, it is cheap, and it is convenient! It lets you connect with your friends and family members any where in the world you are. A few years ago, Google launched its SMS chat service using Gmail. But then took it back due to some issue. It relaunched after a couple of month, but it was limited to very few countries, like U.S. etc. Well here’s a good news! Google has, very recently, introduced updates to the service. Gmail SMS messaging is now available across a lot more countries, including Asian countries such as India,Indonesia Afghanistan,Pakistan etc. Now you can send SMS supported in many networks.

Step 2 : Adding mobile number
Now, hover on a contact of yours, and click on the Send SMS button as shown below.
Note : If you haven’t sent that contact an SMS before, of if you haven’t added their number, then instead of the Send SMS button, there will be a Chat button at the exact same position. Click on this button and you will see a small pop-up at the bottom right of your screen, as shown below.
Click on the Continue this chat over SMS button. This will only appear if you haven’t added their number, or haven’t sent them an SMS before. Otherwise, you will be able to enter your SMS in this pop up. Once you click the continue button, you will be prompted to choose a country and mobile. This is the contact’s mobile number. Add a number and then save
Step 3 : Chat away!
Once you have entered the mobile number, a pop-up will again appear at the bottom right exactly where the previous one did. This is your chat box. You are now ready to go! Type a message in the text field , hit Enter, and sit back and wait for your friend’s reply!
