TextNow customers know that, along with our mobile apps for Android and iOS and our Windows and Mac desktop versions, you can also use TextNow through your browser for both calling and texting.
If you're having trouble with the calling feature on your browser, and you've let your browser have access to your microphone, then a good next step is to simply try a different browser. Below is a list of most popular browsers today along with links to grab the latest version:
|Browser||OS||Supported by TextNow?||Download|
