Pushbullet Updated With Notification Mirroring Across Android Devices

pushbullet logo

Remember the ability to sync notifications across Android devices that was highlighted at last year’s Google I/O? Many developers have clearly yet to take advantage, but thankfully, the fantastic developers at Pushbullet decided to take matters into their own hands with a notification mirroring solution of their own.

You may know Pushbullet as a great app for quickly transferring files, links, messages, and to-do lists from your phone to computer (and vice versa), but it will do a whole lot more than that starting today. The app has had PC mirroring for quite a while, but the update will extend that functionality to your other Android devices. That means you can see who is calling or texting you while using your tablet, for example, or swipe notifications away on one device to dismiss them everywhere.

Cross-device notification mirroring is currently in beta. To enable the feature, install Pushbullet on all of the Android devices you wish to sync. Then, navigate to the settings screen on each device and check the requisite box. Note that only devices running Android 4.3 and up will be able to take advantage of notification mirroring.

Pushbullet is free in the Google Play Store.

    And don’t forget to turn off all the other notifications because you will be annoyed..

    if pushbullet can combine with mighty text that be the perfect baby

    Syncing notifications is not so much of an issue for me as clearing them. When I read an email on one device the notification for it stays on the other for quite some time or until I manually clear it. I wish it would clear the notification on all devices as soon as I read it.

      I’m guessing you didn’t watch the video

      • Raven

        No, I don’t usually watch videos when I am at work. Sounds like you are hinting I should later though.

          Or you didn’t read the article “That means you can see who is calling or texting you while using your tablet, for example, or swipe notifications away on one device to dismiss them everywhere.”

    Finally someone takes advantage of that feature that Google introduced a year ago. Why does it seem no one remembers this feature Google gave us? Good job Pushbullet team. Now if Pushbullet was able to reply to texts on other devices, I would use it. Once they do that, I will try it out. Unless Mighty Text adds that sync feature into their service. That app would be perfect with this feature.

    This makes me think about ditching the Moto Connect, and use this for texts. I love the dismissal idea. I hate answering all my texts on my laptop with Moto Connect, but yet I still have the notification on my X blinking away. Does push bullet allow you to answer texts like Moto Connect?

    • obsidianobelisk

      Don’t count on it.

    • cjohnson481

      It does now if you are using MightyText, I believe.

  • Zac S

    Why have desktop notifications of I can’t even respond to texts

  • MikeSaver

    anyone bought any new hats recently?

  • Ray

    I use Pushbullet everyday and love it im sure Google will scoop them up sometime in the near future
