Welcome to the Messages on iCloud

As its name indicates, the message function in iCloud stores all the messages we receive in iMessage in the Cloud, instead of doing it in each of the devices individually, which means that there is better synchronization between devices and saving storage space in each of them. If you want more details of this function, we made a more detailed article about it.

For now, you should know that to activate the messages in iCloud on your computer, you must access from Preferences of the messages, click on Accounts and select “Activate messages in iCloud”.
