As mentioned in the blog post, SMS from the desktop will still be possible with Cortana, however there will no longer be a dedicated Messaging client that will allow you to read and view other SMS conversations from your PC, synced via your phone.
From Microsoft's official blog post: 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.
And while we doubt the MTV hosts thought they were going to get any secrets out of Dem, the 23-year-old wasn't shy when it came to telling her story about "ghosting" a guy who wouldn't stop stalking her over Skype!
She even says the boy — who wouldn't take the hint — is someone famous.
And we seem to recall hearing a lot about Niall's affinity for the video chat service…
Alongside announcing a new build for Insiders, Microsoft today has announced that they are planning to pull support for SMS texting via the Messaging app from the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to focus on bringing a much better experience to the Skype app.
