Due to its versatility and availability on a large number of desktop platforms, KDE Connect is today regarded as one of the most comprehensive smartphone management utilities that PC users can access. And best thing yet, the app is 100% FREE and developed in an ever-evolving open-source environment.
This app is distributed online as an automated installer that can be easily deployed on any modern desktop or laptop PC, either as a standalone installer or by simply getting it from its official Microsoft Store page. To establish a connection between a PC and an Android device, users also have to install a KDE Connect mobile app and go to the pairing screen where a connection can be requested. Once the connection has been established, users have the ability to control various aspects of devices from either end – the PC can take control of the mobile device, and the smartphone can take control of the PC.
The included commands are too numerous to count. Users can share browser tabs between devices, control Netflix and other apps (even video playback inside browser pages), check battery levels, share clipboard data, synchronize contacts, manage phone calls, inhibit screensaver, ping devices, receive and send notifications, access file system browser, ring phone, manage presentations with built-in virtual trackpad and slide commands, and send an incredible variety of console commands to the phone that can take control of system-level features, services, and tools.
Seasoned PC users can take full advantage of advanced commands that KDE Connect can share between devices, including customized commands that can pre-defined commands from connected devices (shut down windows, lock screen, run various apps, perform custom commands, and more). The connection between devices can even be established outside of the home network, with full support for OpenVPN for making truly secure connections from public spaces. The app features an in-depth browser integration with Firefox and Google Chrome and has extensive documentation that can help enthusiasts take full advantage of all features this app offers.
