How can I send text messages with a Google Home device?

When I try, she tells me that she can not send messages yet. I search online and come up with a guide for using IFTTT to do it, but that is not working either. Does anyone know an easy way to do this?

I text from my laptop by using this:

 

https://messages.google.com/

 

When you say Google device, you mean like a Chromecast or Google Home or something?

Keep trying with IFTTT? That appears to be the only way right now.

 

There used to be this really cool voice assistant called Mastermind that you could integrate with Google Assistant (and Alexa) and it would do A TON of cool Android things that Google should have done but couldn't, one of them being to send texts. It stopped receiving updates for awhile and looked like it was abandoned, but it still worked just fine. Unfortunately, in the last month or two the developers came back and re-launched it as a voice assistant aimed at developers to help them with their coding workflow, and took away all of the consumer features. It sucks. :(

 

This is a list of all the things it could do: (I know it's pertaining to Alexa but it's the only screenshot I could find and Google Assistant had all the same features)alexaskills_social2.jpg
