How Desk SMS App Works?

Once installed, you’ll be required to link the Desk SMS to your Google Account. Now, check which all services you want to forward your text messages to. Once done that, you’re ready to receive/send texts through your Gmail, GTalk or the Chrome browser extension. That is, anytime you receive a text message on your Android device, it will be automatically forwarded to your these services. So, if you have your IM running in your Android phone, you can receive and respond to text messages from Google Talk. Alternatively, you can rely on Gmail to perform the same task.

Desk SMS App for Android

And the best part of Android Desk SMS app is that the recipient will view your message as being sent from your phone number, and not from some encrypted number or jumbled email address that none understands. That is, how you’ve managed to send the text message remains totally masked for the other person.
