Send and Receive Messages by Using Google Messages on Your Computer
It is important to know that some phones in the world do ship with Google Messages being the default SMS app. The same is the case with my Galaxy S22 Ultra and some other devices such as Google Pixel phones.

Step 2: On the top right, you will find the Messages for web button, simply tap that.
Step 3: A new link will open, asking you to open the Google Messages app on your phone and follow the instructions below.
Step 4: Now open the Messages app.
Step 5: Select Device Pairing from the overflow menu that you can find in the top-right corner.
Step 5: In the next window, simply go ahead and tap the QR code scanner button.
Step 6: This will open up a QR code scanner, now you have to point the phone's camera to the QR code that is showing up on your display. Both the webpage and the Messages app will reload and in a few seconds, all your inbox will now appear on your browser.
That is all, folks! For everyone who has been wondering about how to use Google Messages on your computer, this is the easiest way to do that and it does not require you to jump through any hoops, either.
