“I know this question has probably been asked a million time (or more), but is there any way I could view/use my iMessage on my computer? I have a desktop with the Windows 7 system. I have look everywhere and have encountered “no” to be the answer. But..is there any way I could sign into my iCloud account online and use it through there? If not then is there any other way? I think Apple should consider letting users use iMessage on Windows. It would be a lot easier. Thanks in advance!”
