How to Get Android Notifications to Your Windows Computer
Taking your eyes off your computer screen to view what notifications you have on your phone isn’t a difficult chore. However, you must acknowledge that doing so throws you off and causes you to lose your line of thought.
It’s a lot better to be able to see your Android notifications on your Windows computer. You can rapidly determine whether the notice is worthy of your attention and whether or not to pick up your phone.
Manage Your Android Notifications With PushBullet
You’ll need to install PushBullet on your Android smartphone after you’ve installed it on your computer. PushBullet will provide you the option of sending some text files (as a test run) from your computer to your Android device, along with other on-screen instructions, once you’ve installed it on both your computer and Android device.
It’s not required, and if you don’t feel like sending anything, you can easily skip to the bottom. PushBullet will tell you exactly what you need to do to get your Windows machine up and running.
Make sure Notification Mirroring is turned on in the Pushbullet Android app. To enable it, open the app and go to the bottom of the screen to the Mirroring page. Toggle the Notification Mirroring option on, and you’re all set.
How to Interact With the Android Notifications on Your Computer
When you receive a notification on your Android device, a popup window will appear on your Windows PC, giving you the choice to dismiss or reply. You won’t have to strain to read the notification because the window is large enough.
Click on the Chrome extension if you’ve dismissed it but are ready to respond. When the PushBullet window displays, go to the bottom and select Notifications.
A new window will pop up after you click the reply button on the notice, allowing you to respond.
Open the Android app and navigate to the Mirroring page if you want to send a test notification to make sure everything is working properly. Swipe down to the bottom of the screen and tap the Send a test notice button.
It will be evident on your Windows computer’s notification that this is merely a test notification.
Additionally, you may now transmit content to your phone via PushBullet by right-clicking on a picture or highlighting text.
Get More PushBullet Options
You don’t always receive all of the things you want with a free account, like with most free accounts. You can always upgrade to Pro if you want to get more out of PushBullet. You may get the Pro version for $3.33 if you pay yearly or $4.99 if you pay monthly.
You receive options like:
- 1GB capacity on file sending
- Unlimited messages such as SMS, WhatsApp, Kik, etc
- Mirrored notification action support
- Universal copy and paste
- Dark Mode
These are features that aren’t available in the free version. So, if you think you’ll benefit from these things, simply upgrade to Pro.
You won’t have to wonder whether it’s worth checking to see whether that notice is worth your time thanks to PushBullet. If you decide to test PushBullet, please let me know what you think in the comments section below.
