When it's time for an online chat, Messages in Mountain Lion has all the chops for sending short text-based messages and cute emoticons. Messages can also transmit graphics, handle voice conversations, share screens, coordinate group chats, and even host a full-on video chat. But making Messages do your bidding can require some specialized know-how. Networking guru Glenn Fleishman shows you exactly what to do, and explains just what you need to know so you can communicate with confidence.

With this ebook in hand, you'll discover:

  • What is difference between SMS, instant messaging, and iMessage - plus why you'd care.
  • How to convert your iChat experience to the brave new world of Messages.
  • Why it is that Messages lets you communicate via accounts at five different services (plus Bonjour), and how to figure out which you should use.
  • In an iMessage account, how to configure which email address(es) and iPhone phone number(s) should receive messages on your Mac.
  • How to use Google Talk with Google two-factor authentication.
  • How to send messages - and set your online status - with an eye to etiquette and conventions.
  • What an instant-message buddy is, why it's awkward that iMessage doesn't have buddies, and how to add buddies, organize buddies, and even delete or block a buddy.
  • How to exchange photos, videos, business documents, and other files via Messages.
  • The best way to add a spoken conversation or video to a chat, whether through an iMessage/FaceTime chat or an instant-messaging service.
  • How to view and control the Mac screen of the person you're chatting with (or vice-versa).
  • And much more...
