    Now that I am on Yosemite, how do I get the messages on my Mac from people that are not on iPhone devices? This is supposed to work, but on the Mac, I only see the "blue" people..... How do I get the "green" people to show?

    I love how you can send SMS texts through Mac as well, that was why I upgraded. I also like the interface. For someone with low vision it actually is easier for me to see things

    The feature needs iOS 8.1, which should go live as a OTA release tomorrow.

    Apparently its allow you to insert the non iMessage into the new chat section but as soon as the message tries to send it stops and fails. This should be resolved this morning when dot 1 releases. Very much looking forward to this feature!

    It is rare that I message from my actual phone. Most of my texting is done from my Mac. I only use my phone to text with the "green" people. So, I will really be glad when this is working.....today, I hope?!?
