Web texting is a service that provides two-way communication to and from a computer to a mobile device. Users create text through an application on the desktop, and the text is sent to the mobile device through the short messaging system (SMS).
Web texting is a useful service that has developed because of the popularity of mobile devices and smartphones. Before the modern smartphone, Web texting did not happen very often, because the phones did not have sophisticated display and short message delivery systems. Now, texting is a very common method of communication. Having Web texting services allows people to make the transition from a desktop to mobile device, and vice versa.
