Do you want to send and receive texts and missed calls on your computer just like on your Android phone? We know that the idea of getting all your notifications on a single device sounds great, but things tend to get a little more complicated if the receiving device is actually a PC, like we have told you from the start. Anyway, complicated doesn’t have to mean impossible and the multi-platform app Pushbullet can easily help you to make your wish come true.
What can you do with Pushbullet?
As we have already told you, Pushbullet comes as a multi-platform that is available not only on Android, but also on IOS and on Windows platform in the form of Add-ons (these ones are compatible with Chrome and Mozilla browsers). On a PC, these Pushbullet services are compatible with Chrome’s or Firefox’s extension., but we can tell you from the start that we recommend the Chrome extension as long as it offers the best notification that lets you dismiss the notifications right from your Chrome browser. (you can download Chrome’s Pushbullet extension from here or Firefox’s Pushbullet extension from here).
What the app practically does is sharing the notifications from any device to another and as long as it allows cross-platform notification sharing, we can actually be talking about SMS messaging and receiving missed calls between any Android device and your PC. And the list is much longer than that.
You can actually push:
- messages between your devices;
- notes and reminders that show up right into your notification tray;
- addresses that take you right into Google Maps for easy directions;
- pictures from your computer onto your Android phone;
- files that are download automatically and then opened right from your notifications;
- you can also put a checklist right in the notification tray and check things off as you go.
And don’t forget about the full Notification Mirroring feature which can easily sync all your phone and tablet notifications to Chrome on PC – in other terms, it can simply send the notification mirror to another device.
Massive update with New UI and Useful Features
And you should also know that Pushbullet has just received a massive update that offers a new UI, as well as a package of new features for all those who are interested. To be more precise, the UI has a new slideout menu that gives you the chance to quickly filter pushes by device or friend, so if you push things to your devices regularly, this is just the feature that you needed.
All you have to do is swipe out the slider and tap on a certain handset or friend and the stream of pushes will be immediately filtered. The new UI also has a less cluttered look, not to mention the improvements from the notifications area.
So, PushBullet has introduced several improvements that make the connection between your Android phone and the PC much faster than before, also using less memory.
