HandsFree lets you use your Mac to make phone calls, send/receive text messages*, record conversations, see call lists and more. It couldn’t be any easier. With HandsFree running in the background (with the always available status icon and menu), you don’t have to worry about missing a call or a text message. And we think the best part is that it works with any Bluetooth enabled phone. That’s right, your Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, or iPhone is compatible. It’s like Yosemite’s Continuity except for everyone and with more features.
- Wirelessly connect to your phone using Bluetooth.
- Call using the contacts list, use the dial pad or make a call directly from the Contacts app.
- View incoming SMS (text messages) right on your Mac.
- Send or reply to an SMS from your Mac. (Support for sending text messages requires a non-iOS phone. iPhones do not support sending text messages over Bluetooth. For Android, it requires version 4.4.4 or higher.)
- Quickly see missed, incoming and outgoing call lists.
- Record important calls.
- [Fixed] Issue where it was possible the text messaging feature would not work.
- [Fixed] Issue where the call audio button would show phone instead of Mac for new outgoing calls.
- [Fixed] Issue where the first attempt to connect through OBEX would fail. Now the app waits and tries once more which usually resolves it.
- [Improved] Handling for closing phone connections. This should help with the potential issue to get into a connect/disconnect loop.
- [Improved] Handling of errors when connections for phone logs or text messaging fail part way through setup.
- [New] Using updated functions for publishing and un-publishing the HandsFree & Message Notification Server services.
