Just like me, most of you might not like having your phone always in hand while you are browsing on your PC, chatting on Facebook or doing some other official work on your PC. Checking your phone repeatedly for missed call alerts, new messages would be quite a disturbing task when you are concentrated on the PC. Here is a trick which helps you to receive phone alerts on your desktop provided your phone runs n Android OS.
Download Android Notifier on your Computer
This is the first step. You need to download Android Notifier from the link below on your computer and install it. Android notifier is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. I am using Windows 7 and hence the screenshots which I have used are for Windows. If you face any problem installing it on Mac or Linux, you can comment below 🙂
You would also require Java to install Android Notifier. It’s a rare case but if you don’t have Java installed on your computer, hit the download link below.
If Firewall is enables, you might see a notice from Windows Firewall. Nothing to worry, just click on Allow Access 🙂
