How to merge iMessages in macOS and iOS latest versions?

How do I merge iMessages in macOS and iOS latest versions?

I want iMessages sent from my iPhone to be automatically merged with Messages on my Macs - High Sierra.

The reverse should also be true. That is I could start a message on Mac and finish/send later from my iPhone.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I use this feature every day.

On your iPhone go to Settings > General > Software Update.
On your Mac press command space bar and search App Store > Open App store and go to the Updates tab.  Install any update seen there for your Mac that is OSX related.

Here is Apple's support article on how to use messages with your Mac.

This happens automatically - both ways.  Sometimes there is a 1-2 minute delay to see all Messages sync up, but they will eventually.

I'm not aware of this being something Apple supports or has implemented at this time.  At least, I've never see either of my devices show this happens when I try something like this.  I don't believe its built to 'save as draft' to be picked up and sent later on another device.
