The mac (yosemite) has a message application that allows me to enter a text message and it uses my phone to send the text.

Is this functionality available in XE 7.

IE create the text in an OS X app and pass this onto the messaging system.

Thanks.

What Hardware is send the text message from the MAC ... there are a bunch of third party internet based texting services which should be reachable form an internet enabled device

He's referring to the feature in Yosemite that lets you send text
messages via your phone from the mac messages app. Even plain SMS.
It's very handy I must say.

I also use the feature they added to make voice calls on my mac using my
phone.

Yep thats the one.

I was hoping I could connect to this service and send / receive messages directly from a Mac application (e.g. create a SMS messaging service). I have done the sending part using phone gap plugins but it only opens the sms app and passes over the text and recipient, you have to press the send key to confirm.
