I use Hangouts for my SMS on my phone, but I can't seem to see these messages on my computer.  Is there something I have to do to see my SMS messages on desktop, or other devices?

Your carrier SMS messages will not sync across devices.  Hangouts does not sync text / SMS messages from your phone, to your desktop.  All of your other Hangout messages will show across all devices though.  

If you would like to request that feature be added to Hangouts, by all means, leave feedback to the team.... it does get read!  You can read more about leaving feedback for Hangouts here:
