AirDroid is the best tool that lets you connect your Android device to your PC over a WiFi network. While you can always use the USB connection method, but AirDroid helps you get rid of these cables and make everything work wirelessly. Recently, Airdroid team has released a new version of the tool, AirDroid 3, which offers a lot of new features and improvements.
One of the key features included in the AirDroid 3 is AirMirror, which lets you control your Android device right from your PC. After your Android device and PC connected to the same Wifi network, the AirMirror feature will show you the live screen of your Android device.
You can then do tasks like replying to messages, sending messages via WhatsApp, and doing literally everything that you can do on your device. What makes this interesting is that you can now write your messages using the physical keyboard on your computer, so this will definitely help you speed up your typing.
It is worth noting that the AirMirror feature is only supported by rooted devices running Android 4.0 Jelly Bean and higher (or if the Android device is AirDroid-certified). Android 5.0 Lollipop doesn’t support this feature though.
In addition to that, AirDroid 3 for PC and Mac now comes with a new notification feature called Notification Mirror that allows you to view notifications from any app you like and you can also silent them if they tend to disturb you. As many users around the globe constantly use instant messaging services, this feature turns out to be convenient as notifications are directly pushed to the desktop in real time.
Setting up AirDroid is simple. All you need is Airdroid app for Android and Airdroid app for PC, both of which are free to download. After syncing your account on both devices over a WiFi connection, you are ready to go.
