How to get your Android notifications on Linux
There are many ways to seamlessly integrate Android with Windows computers, and you can view files and receive notifications from your smartphone right on your computer. While there is still room for improvement, this kind of feature makes life easier for those who don't want to keep coming on the phone all the time to answer messages or find out if there is anything new. For Linux users, this isn't quite as intuitive, but you can have a similar experience and still get Android notifications efficiently. To find out how, just check out our tips below!
Our first recommendation is one of the best existing software for anyone who needs or wants to see Android notifications on their computer. Pushbullet is extremely simple and easy to use, as well as showing warnings about new messages, emails and even incoming calls on the smartphone.
Although it has cross-platform versions, it takes a bit more work to install it on Linux, but it's still worth it for its quality. If you want a detailed tutorial on how to do this, just click this link.
LinConnect is also a good option to get your Android warnings on the Linux desktop. The app is not very complicated to install or use, but it is not the most complete that we present in this list.
You only need to install the server on Linux and the app on the smartphone, which makes the connection between the two possible quickly and efficiently. You can download the application at this link and the server for Linux at this link.
If you don't want to bother installing Pushbullet manually, you can use AirDroid right in your web browser. Its interface is extremely simple and you only need to scan a QR code to connect it to your smartphone.
You can download the free Android app through this link and access the web version via this link. This will give you notifications and still be able to control some aspects of Android remotely.
Finally, we have an option developed with Linux specifically in mind, AN2Linux. It works very similarly to LinConnect, requiring you to install the server on your computer and the application on your smartphone.
The connection between the two platforms is simple and fast and both programs are completely free. You can click here to download the app and use this link to download the server.
