Think of the weekends you have nothing to do other than keeping your body at the rest. You are enjoying your favorite series lying comfortably at your couch and then suddenly your phone gets a notification that is placed not near to you but at a distance on a charging point. Standing up from this soothing position may equivalent rising up for a herculean task. Gosh not the cup of tea for you right now!

How would you react if we say you can manage the notifications right from your PC? Not aware of how this works? Let us be your guiding force towards a handful of apps that help you control your Android device from a PC.

Before we mention the list of apps let me present another way to control Android on PC. In case, you are a Windows user it is for you. To control Android from PC you can use a tool named “scrcpy”. It displays your phone screen on the PC and all that you need to do is to connect the USB and ADB (Android Debug Bridge). And the additional perk, no root required.

“scrcpy” works on Windows, Mac, and Linux and thus you can download the same for any of the OS. The tool majorly focuses on high-quality performance, fast start-up, and low latency. Here are the steps to set up the same.

  1. Download the zip file from Github and once downloaded extract it.

  2. Set up ADB access on your machine.

  3. Now enter scrcpy by opening up either a command prompt or a terminal under the extracted folder

  4. And you are done

Now, let’s focus on the apps to control Android from PC

Pushbullet

Pushbullet is an amazing application that allows you to synchronize multiple devices on your PC to manage and share the files. It has got additional support to manage a bit of WhatsApp also. You can easily send WhatsApp messages along with having the pop-up notifications on your device when a message arrives.

The app has got some limitations including just 100 messages (SMS plus WhatsApp) every month. For accessing the services after a month you need to spend a fair amount of $4.99/month. The app can delight the users with some additional features that allow them to control a variety of devices from the PC.

Vysor (add image)

Vysor is another exceptional application that mirrors user’s Android smartphone to PC. The app uses Chrome to sync the smartphone to user’s PC. It performs exceptionally well and that is the reason I have included the same in this list. The connection is quite fast and offers some amazing features to the users. As per the most interesting feature, a single Android device can be shared with multiple users.
