The new messaging capabilities built into OS X Yosemite make your Mac even more useful for day-to-day communication. With this new set of features (part of Continuity), you can send SMS text messages and make phone calls from your Mac. Than can be super-helpful if you’re forgetful and leave your iPhone in another room.

It doesn’t take too long to set it all up; in fact, we’re going to show you how to set up Continuity in less than two and a half minutes! Check it all out in our video below.

As you can see, it’s not too tricky to make this all work. All you need to do is to jump into the Settings apps and connect your devices — then off you go!

You’re all set to make calls and send text messages from your Mac, whether your iPhone is in the same room with you or not.
