    Feature request: web interface for iMessages in iCloud

    Idea: why not have an iMessages interface in iCloud that allows users to read/write/search through messages in iCloud similar to how gmail works? Reason why people would want this is many users pay to store their iMessages in iCloud but the interface is terrible through the native iMessages apps...

    All Devices Stickers Sync?

    Hi I don't see anything online about iMessage stickers can or can't sync all devices? I assume it cannot since my iPhone and iPad don't have all same ones. I think it strange it cannot sync all devices when everything else iMessage can.
