    Mac - Will be included in 10.13.5 which should be released any time now.

    Watch - I’m sure at some point, yes.

    Messages in the cloud for Mac is included in the update released today (I think it’s today). Here’s the link for what’s included in the updates.

    I just edited my post. I thought it was released today but I could be wrong. I haven’t opened up my Mac yet.

    That’s good to hear. All I have is a an iPhone & MBP, so I have to wait for the Mac update to be released to see how it works.

    I received the iTunes update also. The Mac update hasn’t been released yet.

    “Minor app and performance improvements” is what the update said. Specifically, I’m not sure.

    yeah it works well. why they didn't include the watch for it too is strange hopefully soon. on their website it says iPad phone and mac. perhaps they think on the watch not many people care as they rarely send texts off it. or views texts off it but still would be nice. I hope they change the layout to itunes to have it identical to the music app on iOS or even have a seperate iTunes app like iOS

    The only update I've received for my MacBook Pro today was iTunes v12.7.5. Other than that, there isn't an awaiting macOS update thus far, and I've been checking periodically since around 1 PM EDT this afternoon.

    I thought it was too. So many people are having problems with messages in the cloud some messages weren’t shown on new devices. I think I found out why (I think ) Craig fedherigi said only older messages will be stored on the cloud newer messages are stored locally cached on the device but that could be completely wrong

    That’s possible!! I haven’t really looked into it yet...it’s been a crazy week!! I’m hoping to do some digging this weekend.

    You’re welcome & I’m honestly not sure yet. I’m assuming it works like photos do. As soon as you’re on WiFi, it uploads to the cloud.

    yeah it only appears when its initially set up not when any new messages are added. I think when any new messages are added it works the same way as icloud backup when phone is connected to power etc then it pushes them to iCloud (i think) can you please try and let me know. i set up my old iphone 6 with 11.4 as new and all my texts came back it was awesome

    Thanks. See if the amount of messages stored in iCloud changes after you send a message to a friend and do a iCloud backup and let me know if you see it changing

    My messages have updated several times & all my devices match up. I’ve also noticed that it does randomly update on its own & the status bar does pop up when its updating.
