    Just seems to bobble about for a second, open FT and then does nothing.

    I do however receive texts from non - iMessage contacts through to my Mac. Awesome stuff that.

    Have you tried responding to texts from non-iMessage contacts in messages? Mine keep sending as iMessages for some reason.

    From what it seems, it's currently not up and running in this beta.

    There's an off chance it's not supported for older macs as well (my biggest fear as I'm on a 2011 Macbook Pro), what model Mac do you have?

    Does this require the iOS8 beta also to test the sms features?

    Really?! That is impressive. So the OS on the phone isnt a factor (As long as the hotspot feature is available)? So iOS 6 would still be able to have the sms and calls on a mac?

    Yeah, I couldn't get SMS functionality to work until I updated my iPhone to iOS 8. Now it works flawlessly.

    I am still not able to send an SMS through messages, but if someone texts me first and then I respond, it works fine. This wasn't working yesterday and it started working all of a sudden today.

    Hi, the phone works perfectly and ios taking yosemite 8 must-have bluetooth enabled (Tested on mac mini) messages if they do not work at all.

    Hahaha, why do people just say things??

    YES it does require iOS8 on your iphone and that your iphone is in range to communicate with your computer running Yosemite. SMS, phone calls etc are all routed through your iphone running iOS8. These new features involve the two OSes now talking to eachother, whether it is over wifi or bluetooth is still unclear.

    :) See still say you've tried it and it only works for bluetooth but only calls, no sms.
