Accept the Messages for Mac Software License Agreement
How to Install Messages Beta for Mac

Next, the Messages for Mac Beta software license agreement will appear. These agreements generally outline your rights to using the downloaded software files, any liabilities shared by you or the parent company, Apple in this case, privacy information and more. I always recommend you read these agreements so you are aware what you are getting with this and any other instant messaging client.

Fortunately, the installer allows you to print and save these policies by clicking one of these buttons accordingly. Click "Continue" to advance to the next step of the installation process.

A dialogue window will pop up prompting you to accept the terms of the software license agreement. Click the "Agree" button to install, "Disagree" to exit the installer and quit installation or the "Read License" button to read the agreement.
