Pushbullet and EvolveSMS are teaming up to allow users to view and reply to text messages on their Android phone from their PCs. The software are both in beta right now so it's not quite fully baked yet, but the promise behind this partnership is similar to what Motorola had delivered on the Moto X with the Motorola Connect suite. Rather than having to reach for your phone to see and then peck on a tiny keyboard to respond to messages, you can now see and reply using your PC.
You'll need to follow the instructions in the Google+ announcement if you want to take part in the beta. This requires a few steps. Essentially, you'll want to join the Google+ beta community for both EvolveSMS and for Pushbullet, then apply to be a beta tester for both apps through the Google Play store, and lastly download both apps. You'll also need the PushBullet Chrome extension, which allows notifications on your phone to show up on your PC desktop.
