How can I receive a text to both Ipad and Android phone from someone with Apple iphone, Ipad, Macbook?


I don not have an Iphone.


I currently have just an Android phone. People can of course text me from an Iphone or any other phone.



I am getting an IPAD soon:

My family members want to text me from THEIR ipad or Macbook.

I have set up an AppleID for the future when I get an Ipad.



However when they text me from THEIR Ipad or MacBook I want to receive it BOTH on MY iPad and Android phone.



Is this possible OR when they send text will it will look up my Apple ID and only send it to one device using the email address since the iPad (I am getting) will not have a phone number?



I could set up a Google voice number so it goes to Google voice and have that app on my Android and my upcoming Ipad but not sure that when they send text it will use the number instead of email?



I realize iPad will have I messages app.





Thanks for any advice, third party paid software, etc...



Again I do not have an Iphone so cannot set up continuity amongst devices.



Thank you so very much

Stay healthy

Sincerely

Peter

A txt will go to y our phone number, if the txt is sent to your phone number it will go only to the device setup for that number. If you use a 3rd party txt app like WhatsApp then any device you logon on to with that app will get the txt. Google voice should act the same way.
