Dell Mobile Connect mirrors phone screen on PC, but there's a catch

Mobile Connect works on similar lines to Microsoft's Continuum and lets users to send and receive texts from PC along with making or receiving calls. Calls, text messages, and even apps such as Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram, Uber, Venmo and others are all accessible from the Dell Mobile Connect software, giving you the ability to focus on a singular device (your PC) while retaining the use of your smartphone's functionality. For Android, there is support for Android 5.0 through 8.0, and in the Apple ecosystem, there is support for iOS 10 and iOS 11. To download Dell Mobile Connect, and for more information regarding the service, users can visit the official site here.

The company also noted that the connection between your phone and PC remains secure through a point-to-point connection, never going through the internet or WiFi routers.

In an interview with VentureBeat, Frank Azor, general manager for Dell laptops, said, "When you look at Dell Mobile Connect and what that solution offers, it's centered around reducing the frustration of having to manage two devices every day".


If you don't have a Dell PC, you are stuck with Pushbullet, which is actually quite more than enough for most users. Once your phone receives a notification, Dell Mobile Connect will pass it along-but won't show the entire message.

Notifications - your phone and Android notifications will appear on your PC, enabling you to access them through your PC's mouse, keyboard, and touch screen. In a demonstration, it seemed to work flawlessly, though there was a small bit of lag. Not only does it display notifications, it even allows you to interact with them, such as accept or reject calls and even control apps on your smartphone.

And, of course, you can play games. Both Microsoft's Continuum-now essentially defunct, with the demise of Windows Mobile-and Samsung's DeX require extra hardware, adding cost to the equation. Dell, a PC maker, thinks differently.
