Dell Mobile Connects lets you control your phone from your PC. The software will come preinstalled in Dell’s upcoming XPS, Inspiron, Alienware and Vostro laptops, the company announced at CES 2018. The software is compatible with both Android devices and iPhones, but functionality is limited to Apple phones.
You can make and receive phone calls directly from your computer, and you can also send and receive text messages on your PC screen. This permits you to stay connected to your PC without worrying that you are missing phone notifications or calls.
And you can use any Android app on your PC. Which permits you to bring your small-screen apps like games to a bigger screen. If your computer doesn’t have a touchscreen, you can control the mirrored phone game with a keyboard and mouse.
If you want to get an Uber, you can order it from your PC. You can pause the notifications whenever you wish.
“When you look at Dell Mobile Connect and what that solution offers, it’s centered around reducing the frustration of having to manage two devices every day,” said Frank Azor, Dell’s general manager for XPS, Alienware, and laptops.
He added, “When you’re in a PC mode and you’re working or learning or consuming content in that mode, Dell Mobile Connect keeps you in that frame instead of taking you out of it to switch back and forth to your phone. We think it’s a very valuable solution for that reason”.
If someone calls you on your mobile phone, you get a notification on your PC. If you choose to answer, you can talk to the person on your computer audio headset.
Avoid splitting your attention between your PC and smartphone while working, studying or playing a game. You will be notified of your phone calls, SMS, IMs, and other apps notifications right from your PC screen. You control which specific apps you would like to receive notifications from on your PC.
You will never miss a single call or a text message, as all of your important communication will be imported into your important communication will be imported into your PC. Your full-size PC keyboard, screen, and speakers will offer more enjoyable communications via text and calls.
Your connection is only accessible on the PC when you are present and the communication remains secure through a point-to-point connection, never going through the internet or WiFi routers.
