PushBullet Update Enhances Desktop Notifications, Tasker Event Plugin Support

PushBullet – one of our favorite apps of all time – received an update today that makes notifications on your desktop even richer. The update also adds support for Tasker’s newly added Event plugins category.

In notifications from your phone to computer, PushBullet has introduced improvements that make the connection both faster and use less memory. They also tossed in images with notifications, so you can see things like who just sent you an email or text and album art from music playing. Images should start appearing automatically once you update the Android app. 

In terms of Tasker features, PushBullet can be used as a trigger, so that you can do something like, “if I receive a push that my website is down, take my phone out of silent and play a siren at max volume!” That’s the example the PushBullet team gave us, anyway, but you can see the power here.

The update is live now, grab it from Google Play.

    Huge Push Bullet fan here. One of my all time favorite apps. However, in my experience, the desktop notifications CRUSH your battery.

    My hat is off to the PushBullet devs for making sure their app remains awesome!

    Keep it up!

    Isn’t Hangouts supposed sync messaging like this for chrome? I guess I’m getting this app.

    • EvanTheGamer

      That would be a wise decision, because PushBullet is seriously a great app!

      Chrome has a hangouts extension allowing you to send and receive messages. It works really well.
      Push bullet allows you to see,ready and dismiss the messages from your computer using Chrome and its extension.
