Pushbullet, the force that binds your devices together, has gotten a huge update today. Now, you can chat with friends (or send messages to yourself) when you push a file. It's also easier to send multiple files and the Windows app has even added Facebook-style chat heads.
Of course, the usual problem with a new chat app still exists: getting other people to use it. Even if it doesn't replace Hangouts or Facebook Messenger for you, it's still handy to be able to send a message or ask a question when you use Pushbullet to send a file or address to someone else.
The new app has been updated across all platforms, with the exception of the Mac app, which should be coming later. The updates are currently rolling out, so if you don't see it on your device immediately, give it a couple hours.
