You can also use a virtual machine to run iMessage on Windows PC. A virtual machine is a software program that allows you to run another operating system on your computer. To use a virtual machine to run iMessage on Windows PC, you will need to download a virtual machine software program, such as VirtualBox or VMware, and install an iOS operating system, such as macOS Catalina or iOS 15, on the virtual machine.

Additionally, some of these methods may require you to have a Mac computer or a virtual machine running macOS.
