    Hey everyone,

    Got my first samsung tablet two weeks ago. Tab S4 obviously. It's the WiFi version. I have the Note 9 as well. I was wondering, is there any way to get my text messages on my tab S4? I use android messages on my note 9 if that matters...

    Thanks!

    Have you already tried using the Android Messages on the Web interface using Chrome? I've found that it works on my Pixel C, although I'm not sure how well notifications work through Chrome. https://support.google.com/messages/.../7611075?hl=en

    I don't use Chrome, but it works in Firefox just as if it was the phone, so it should work on Google's own browser.

    I wound up using Pushbullet. It sync's my texts from my phone to my Desktop and my Tablet. Get notification in the notification tray and everything. So far, so good.

    I was wondering the same. Now, the one Im getting is 4g through sprint. Will want to look into messages on it. Previously used an app I downloaded that worked well. Wondering if maybe this one has anything built in.

    Iwas going to do Mighty Text so my cell number showed up on the tablet Ihave, but since I have the 4G tablet, I found it has its own number and can send receive messages to my contacts so i use that

    came in handy this evening when my phone died (didn't have cord handy) so I messaged husband from the tablet.

    I have paired my Nexus 6P with my Samsung Tab S4 by using android messenging.
    It works a treat:

    If you have Verizon, Message + (Verizon Messages) will work.

    I have Sprint as well wity unlimited data. Mine has it own line, but usually use the Pulse app so I can send and receive as if from my Note 9. Gives my phone a break and I dont miss any messages

    Well with the unlimited data you can still use the messages app that came with the tablet and you can send and receive text messages without using pulse.

    I like pulse because I like being able to send and receive from the Note 9 number on the tablet. I do use the tablet's own number occasionally.

    So how do you get Pulse to work from phone to tablet? Does it work over WiFi?

    For those reading this thread who have Verizon and a wifi Android tablet. You can use Verizon's Message+ for texts and if you turn on wifi calling on your phone you can also use Message+ on your tablet for voice calls.
