While we work on our personal computers and laptops we might sometimes miss the very important SMS, emails or calls because we are far away or in no contact with our smartphones. Every time peeking into the phone for checking the notifications is not a solution, it consumes lot of time and diversion of mind from the main work. This problem can be sorted out in a very simple way using a very helpful application. From now, you will not miss any notification from your phone while you will work on the computer. Let’s know how we can easily mirror phone notifications on desktop.
Install Pushbullet App On Mobile And Extension On Computer.
To do it so, at first you will have to install an application “Pushbullet” on your mobile phone. Android users can download it from Google Playstore and Apple iOS users can get it from App Store.
