    Use the built in messages app.

    As others have mentioned, you can use the Messages app. However, if you're trying to send SMS texts (standard phone texts) then there are some prerequisites: your phone must be an iPhone, it must be running iOS 8.1 or later, and your computer must be running OS X 10.10 or later. If those conditions aren't met, then the best you can do from your computer is to send iMessage-based texts, which can only be sent and received by other people who use Apple devices.
