How to receive messages alerts and notifications of the Android phone on PC via Chrome or Firefox best applications
Thanks to an excellent application you can now view every notification of your Android phone, on your computer.
In this way, even if the phone is kept in a pocket, in another room or with the silent ringtone, there will be no danger of losing any message, call, Whatsapp or other types of notification because they will also be displayed on the computer.
This can be achieved without installing any additional programs on your computer, creating the connection via the Google Chrome browser and the popular Android PushBullet app is enough.
PushBullet is a great application, among the best for Android, super-fast and free, which allows you to transfer data and information between your computer and Android phone in a simple way with a touch.
The new function is called “notification mirroring” and works like this: as soon as a notification is displayed on the phone, the same warning is also displayed on the computer in real time, using Chrome desktop notifications.
Text messages, emails, phone calls even the rest become notified via pop up on the PC and if opened or deleted, also disappear from Android.
There is also the possibility to disable the mirroring of specific notifications thus avoiding being bombarded by messages and persistent warnings.
Notifications can be marked as read directly from the computer by pressing on dismiss.
After setting up the account, in the Android app you have to press the options button in the upper right corner, access the settings and activate the notification mirroring by authorizing the app to interact with Android.
But there are some limits in Pushbullet: all users who use Chrome and Firefox with Android 4.0 and above, are able to see notifications on the PC.
To be able to disable certain types of notifications and customize applications that take advantage of mirroring, the phone must be Android 4.3 and above and you need to use Google Chrome.
PushBullet is really the easiest and fastest way to view and manage Android notifications from your computer, without installing heavier applications.
Alternatives to Pushbullet are :
– Destkop Notification, which works very similar to Pushbullet, with extension for Chrome and Firefox, which allows you to receive Android notifications on the PC from the mobile connected to the internet and that uses the Android API.
After the connection is successful, you can try a test ping from your phone to the computer and verify receipt of the notification.
All future notifications will be received on Windows: including SMS, Facebook, Gmail and WhatsApp notifications.
– Crono App, released in 2018, free and really good.
To work, you must install the Crono app on your Android phone and the Chrono extension on Chrome on your PC.
When the apps are connected, Crono web shows all your notifications in real time and also allows you to reply to received messages, call back in case of missed call and much more.
Almost all the actions that can be performed on a notification on Android, can be done by PC on Chrome.
In addition to this, just like Pushbullet, you can also send files to the device and paste the copy notes and paste on it.
Notifications can also be postponed or hidden on the computer screen.
