Linux and Android come together

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just found a app for Linux and Android which allows Android mobile device to your Linux PC wireless over WiFi. 

 

On the Linux PC you need to install GSConnect. On the Android side you need to install KDE Connect. Once you install the software to both now pari up and you can remote control your cellphone from you PC and visa versa. Like if my cellphone rings it automatically stops the media on my PC, reduces the volume, then displays the caller information on the screen. Even text messages are displayed on the screen. You can send SMS messages from your PC now. If you lose your phone just click ring. It will make the phone ring so you can find it.

 

Spin it around now you can control the mouse with the screen of your phone. Takes a bit of getting used too and the gestures you've got to use to do functions. You can do file transfers from your phone over high speed WiFi. Like my LG G5 cellphone is capable of 5GHz WiFi so it can transfer much faster than most USB cords.
