Pushbullet, View Notifications From Your Android Device To Computer Desktop

Before you start using Pushbullet, you have to do a little setting up first. The process is pretty straightforward and will take just a couple of minutes. A requirement you have to be aware of is that the service needs a computer running the Chrome internet browser. If you're using Google Chrome follow the instructions outlined below.

  1. Download the Pushbullet app from the Play Store.
  2. Once you open the app, you'll be asked to log in using your Google account.
  3. After that, you'll be asked whether you want your phone or tablet's notifications to be displayed on your computer. Go ahead and enable the Notification Mirroring Service on the following page. 
  4. The next step is to download the Pushbullet Chrome extension

Your phone or tablet's notifications should soon start appearing on your desktop. If the service doesn't start working immediately, give it a few minutes... Some users have reported the app taking a few minutes before kicking in. You should have noticed that Pushbullet can do a lot more than just forward your notifications. 

There's an option to send links and files directly from your browser to your mobile device, an option to shoot messages to your fellow friends who also use the app is available as well. Give Pushbullet a try, let us know what your thoughts are in the comment section below.
