Apple didn’t take much long to roll out its new feature of Messages in iCloud with iOS 11.4 and MacOS 10.13.5. Messages in iCloud store messages and other attachments that come with a message, which provides you more space in the device. When you sign into a new Apple device with your Apple ID, the conversation automatically loads in the device. Also, all the devices with same Apple ID will be updated with the conversations at the same time. You can enable the feature from settings of your iOS or MacOS within seconds, and your devices will get in sync together. Office.com/setup
