    If an android user texts me, will continuity show me their text on my iPad or computer, or only iOS messages? Thanks.

    Yes, Apple refers to that as SMS relay. However, it is not yet activated and Apple will turn the feature on with an update in October.

    It will round about the 21st October when the feature is activated with the launch of Yosemite.

    SMS relay is not active between any devices at this time.
