Apple Releases Messages Beta for Mac, Download Now

Apple has released a beta of Messages for OS X, letting you send unlimited iMessages to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch from your Mac.

Download Messages Beta and get a taste of what’s coming in OS X Mountain Lion. When you install Messages, it replaces iChat. But iChat services will continue to work. And Messages brings iMessage to the Mac — just like on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 5.

Messages beta for Mac

● Send unlimited iMessages to any Mac, iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.*
● Start an iMessage conversation on your Mac and continue it on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
● Send photos, videos, attachments, contacts, locations, and more.
● Launch a FaceTime video call and bring the conversation face-to-face.
● Messages supports iMessage, AIM, Yahoo!, Google Talk, and Jabber accounts.

You can download Messages for Mac from here.

Note: Be sure you’re running the latest version of OS X. We knew iMessage on the Mac was inevitable, but we’re ecstatic that it’s finally arrived. Be sure to let us know what you think about it.

Also, we are aware that some users are receiving the following error when trying to download iMessage: “Our apologies but there was an unexpected error with the application. This problem has been noted, and an email has been sent to the administrators. Please check back in a few hours to try the download again.”

It looks like Apple’s servers may be maxed out, as clearing the cache, and trying another browser doesn’t seem to be working for people. Just be patient if you encounter this error, it should be up soon enough.
