Microsoft may not yet have an official solution for viewing SMS from your Windows Phone on a none Windows Phone device, but that doesn’t mean that is impossible.
An enterprising developer has made use of Microsoft’s Windows Phone backup to create a Windows app that downloads the SMS messages from the server and presents them in an interface not dissimilar to the old Windows 8 messaging app.
Here’s the app description:
- Read your text messages without needing your phone nearby
- Export messages for archival or analysis
This app works similarly to the way SMS syncs between two Windows Phone devices and all messages sent, received and deleted are synced accordingly.
