Facebook integration and iMessage upgrades shown off in OS X 10.8.2

By , Sep 19, 2012

It’s been a big day for Apple releases, including the Mac. As we reported earlier, OS X 10.8.2 was released with a whole slew of new features. Most predominant are the new Facebook single sign-on, and the iMessage phone number syncing abilities.

Take a look at our brief video demonstration of these two new features in action, and don’t forget to check out our post highlighting the full change log. Have you upgraded yet?

    Jeff, you should make it clear to folks to to add your phone # into iMessages, you click the “add Email” button..and ignore the user@example template and just type in your # and it will accept it. I just fumbled around for 5 minutes until I just tried that. It’s confusing as hell.

    Edited: Wait, that might still not be right, as I haven’t gotten the “verification email” it supposedly sent… How DO you sent it up???

      be sure to add the country code “1” before your 10 digit phone number
