Where can I download Message + for Win 10?

Member

This is no longer in the MS app store or on the Verizon site, that I can find. Where can I get a copy of the install file?

 

 

Thanks!

Here is a link to the older version 1.0.17.0 install file.  The newer version 2.0.2.0 didn't have a savable install file.

Do you have Windows 10 and did you try to find the app via that link?  If you follow that link you posted, the GET IT NOW button leads to the help pages and eventually back to the same page.  If you click on the DOWNLOAD THE DESKTOP APP, it takes you to a page with options for Android, iOS, Web Client or macOS but NOTHING for Windows.  The desktop app for Windows 10 is NOT accessible via the website or the Windows/MS Store.

Sorry don't like it so don't use it.  Guess nothing has changed since last January.

Even if you don't use Windows 10, whatever OS you use should show you the lack of Windows 10 desktop app options.

Exactly, nothing for Windows 10 that I can find. You would think that since this is the primary Verizon SMS Messaging app they would at least provide an installer for it.

If you've searched this Forum for 'message+ windows 10', you'd find all the discussions regarding issues with the app, specifically syncing messages with integrated devices.  So many, in fact, that they pulled it from the website and Windows/MS store.  Fortunately, the v1.0.17.0 installer file was able to be saved and be shared.  This app does work on Windows 10.

Note10_user, after the Windows update to 10, Message + had syncing issues that were unresolved. This led to the application being pulled from Microsoft on Windows 10. Some have been able to continue use by following these steps:

  • Start this process on a system where Verizon Messenger+ is already installed. I have 4 such systems which are networked so this was easy.
  • Select the Start button using the left mouse button.
  • Scroll down the list of applications until you find the icon for Verizon Messenger+.
  • Right click the Verizon Messenger+ icon.
  • Select More.
  • Select Share from the pop-up menu.
  • This will open the Microsoft Store and a window labeled Share will pop-up. Select the escape key to close the Share pop-up.
  • The Microsoft Store now displays Verizon Messages with 3 dots (…) in the upper right corner of the screen.
  • Select the 3 dots (…)
  • Select Install on My Devices
  • Select the device you want to install Verizon Messenger+ on.
  • Go to your device and launch Verizon Messenger+. Your system will now sync with your other Verizon Messenger+ devices.

acraftylady2, we want to make sure that you're able to utilize the Message+ application on your Windows 10 computer. The link is confirmed to be working as intended at this time. Which web browser are you trying to use when clicking the link? what exactly happens after clicking the link?
