Microsoft today released a PC and Mobile build 14376 to Insiders on the Fast ring. With the latest build the company removed the most wanted feature of “Messaging Everywhere functionality”.The company has given below the reason for the removal of the feature from the Anniversary Update due next month.

“We have been testing with Windows Insiders a preview of the “Messaging everywhere” feature that allows you to receive and send text messages from your Windows 10 phone directly to and from your Windows 10 PC. The experience was well-received by Insiders, however, we believe we can deliver an even better experience through the Skype app. Because of this, we decided not to release this feature as part of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update this summer. Starting with Build 14376 and going forward, Insiders will no longer have the ability to reply to text messages from their phone via the Messaging app on their PCs. The ability to reply to text messages on your PC using Cortana is unaffected. Going forward, we will be working with the Skype Team on delivering a great “messaging everywhere” experience on your Windows 10 devices through the Skype app. We will share more details about this experience in the months ahead.”

This was the most anticipated and well received feature by Most of the Insiders on Windows 10 and was awaited for public release with  the Anniversary Update.

SO what do you think of the decision taken by Microsoft of removing the Feature from the Anniversary Update next month, let us know in the comments below.
