I don't even do that anymore, I use Pushbullet. I have the app installed on my OnePlus 3T, iPad2 and the Chrome extension on my laptop and PC at work.
You'll thank me later. Pushbullet goes on the phone, the tablet, work pc, home pc... its a life saver. push URLs between devices! Left your phone at work? Check your text messages on your XBOX, and reply to friends. Left a file at home, grab it on your phone!
Pushbullet. Instantly sending files and links between my phone and computer has changed how I use both.
It gives you a share target, where any time you can share to another android app, you can send whatever you're sharing to your computer or other phone/tablet instead. And it works the other way too, with browser plugins and a desktop app that send files to your phone instantly. Unlike other sharing options, it's instant and it just gives you the file/link/picture whatever, no hassle.
Depends what you use or what you're looking for. In general, you'll find most third party apps are better than their stock or first party/official counterparts. I don't know what you usually use on your phone, but here's what I have.
Email: Inbox (if you use gmail)
Reddit: Reddit Sync
SMS: Android Messages
Music Player: Phonograph or Retro Music
Browser: Google Chrome or flyperlink (floating chat head browser)
File explorer: Solid Explorer
Calendar: Google Calendar or Today Calendar
Weather: Weather Timeline
Video player: MX Player or VLC
Gallery: Google Photos, Camera roll or Piktures
Notes: Google Keep
Launcher: Nova Launcher
I also use Pushbullet a lot to send links and files to other devices, mirror notifications to my desktop and shared clipboard. You can also add more quick settings tiles, Tiles is an example that offers a plethora of settings, but it's paid iirc. There should be many more free alternatives on the Play Store.
Pretty handy little extension that syncs notifications and can also sync your clipboard and allows you to SMS from your browser.
The app is here:
Not sure if these qualify as lesser known, but they certainly deserve more attention:
I haven't tried the other ROMs but what I gather, Dmitry is pure AOSP, Frank is almost 'stock' with various updates and fixes since Dmitry posted his initial release (Doze enabled, for example), MinimalOS is custom but with very minimal set of features (hence the name), and Cataclysm is a full featured custom ROM based on the N5 factory image (Google apps included, Dialer, Contacts, Backup, Webview, DRM and other Google shared libraries, sounds, animations, Doze, etc)
Google's OTA updates make changes to system, kernel, and perhaps userdata as well, but I'm not too familiar with the specifics.
Pushbullet has external notifications, you can subscribe to channels and get updates on various topics. I haven't actually used it myself, though.
Pushbullet should suit your needs for text from PC
Link me: PushBullet
Edit: guess that doesnt work here?
I've never used a 'HDMI stick' other than a Chromecast, so what I say may not even be useful, but the first two things that come into mind is trying PushBullet to send the YouTube link from your phone to the HDMI stick, and Cast Receiver, which turns many Android devices into a Chromecast receiver.
I really like Pushbullet:
It has never worked for me. I use Pushbullet to do the same thing, works pretty well except that it splits up long messages into multiple short ones which can look weird on the receiving end.
This isn't the primary use case for Pushbullet, it's an incredibly useful app for other reasons to.
Have you tried Pushbullet? That seems to be the most common application for getting your phone notifications to show up elsewhere.
Use Pushbullet. Comes as a Chrome extension and app and allows you to instantly send text snippets between any two devices for easy copy/paste. (With SMS as an option)
Brilliant concept. Looks great and well executed.
One minute gripe is the screenshots on the google play entry. If youre going to do an in app screenshot with text, standard convention seems to be to add in a fake phone and coloured background, similar to [link]
Pushbullet is a great stopgap measure until google gets their shit together
I love allo and would use it almost exclusively if it weren't for the glaring lack of a web app
If you don't have Pushbullet, get Pushbullet. Texting from your PC is awesome.

Pushbullet is what I have always used. Very useful to transfer the odd file here and there. Plus you can see messages, respond and SMS all from your PC. Great when you are in the office.
I have a recipe on ifttt that I use to send a pushbullet notification to my device of the daily C&H comic posted here on this sub.
It's very basic in the sense that it only does a keyword search for "Calvin and Hobbes" so you might get other posts that have "Calvin and Hobbes" in the title, but it's not too much if a bother to me.
Easy .... Put the phone on the table.
Now all your files are ON the table.
Sorry i just couldn't help it.
Portal WiFi transfer
If that's what you're using, I would highly recommend Pushbullet as a better alternative for texting from your PC. I have been using it for a long time as a more full-featured OneNumber replacement.
Fitbit claims that this notification is required in order to keep receiving notifications from your device.
Funny that plenty of other apps are able to monitor notifications without displaying an annoying, persistent notification (like Pushbullet)
It mirrors your phones notifications to your computer and if its a text message it even allows you to reply to them by clicking the notification.
Pushbullet is essentially an SMS notification system ([link]). One of the functionalities is where you can subscribe to an APK Mirror channel through Pushbullet. This subscription button is on the APK Mirror page of the app, right next to the RSS channel logo (looks like a bullet).
I haven't used Pushbullet myself but have heard good things about it.
Pushbullet and AirDroid. I prefer AirDroid. Check em out!
Manually. But you can get Pushbullet, then you can click on the "Follow Pokemon GO App Updates" on the side and you'll be notified every time a new Pokemon GO APK is released. That way you don't have to keep checking for new updates on your on or waiting for someone to post it to the sub :)
Hey, just a suggestion to everyone plugging their phones and tablets to your laptops and PCs for transferring files. Use Pushbullet to instantly send files to any device over the air. Quick and easy. :)

You don't install it as an extension on your phone, it's just a app. Download it here:
Incoming Android links!
Mighty Text $0.00 (optional IAP to upgrade service)
Pushbullet has a widget and can be set up to receive RSS feeds amongst other things. It's a bit fiddly to set up the RSS in it though; I doubt it would be quite what you're looking for
As far as I know you need to use Hangouts to do this as /u/catfoodluvr suggested. Personally I hate Hangouts and highly recommend using ~~Pushbullet~~ Join instead.
EDIT: See below
Push Bullet. r/Android loved it and then hated it when the devs instituted an expensive monthly fee, but the free version is still really useful for people with lower requirements.
Really easy to set and use!
It's free for basic usage. You only get 100 texts per month but honestly I don't use it enough to need the paid unlimited service. I usually have my phone with me at my desk but if it's a longer message I'll just type it out. Worth trying the free version for a while to see if you like it [link]
FYI - While inferior to Join, there is also Pushbullet. If you're only using one of these apps to mirror notifications for this Etsy app, you might not need the Pro version of Pushbullet. There is a free version that allows for basic notifications. While Join is superior, there's a one-time cost to the app.
Try out Pushbullet or Join to sync SMS and/or notifications between the devices.
Pushbullet é um app maravilhoso que faz isso... Tem tbm o navegador opera e sua nova atualização que envia links ou mensagens pro seu smartphone.. Mas o Pushbullet vale mais a pena [link]
Exchange is the stock email (not gmail) that comes with your phone. If you use it you need to set it to not receive emails instantly because your phone is constantly checking for new emails and drains your battery.
"Pushbullet is one of the fastest and easiest way to get links, notes, lists, files, and addresses both from your desktop computer to your mobile device and vice versa. All of this is done from the Pushbullet Android app, the service's Web site, or one of the browser extensions for Chrome or Firefox." It also allows you to quickly send links and files to friends and has a built in messaging platform that is becoming more powerful than traditional SMS and MMS. I suggest reading up on it.
You might be using Pushbullet, but instead should be using Join.
You might be using Todoist, but instead should be using TickTick.
You might be using Sync for reddit, but instead should be using Boost for reddit.
There are two main ones that I know of.
<strong>Pushbullet</strong> - This was well loved but they made some features paid only
<strong>Join</strong> - This was front page a few weeks ago and is a 1 time payment replacement of pushbullet, missing a few features but having some fresh ones as well. <strong>Here is a link to the reddit thread</strong>
Edit: Formatting. I always suck at formatting...
Web Developer here:
Pushbullet - Allows me to send text/images/files between phone/computer, as well as receive and respond to phone notifications from my computer
ColorZilla - Color dropper with RGB/HEX/HSV values with histroy
LastPass - Password manager
uBlock Origin - Lightweight ad blocker
Screencastify - Screen recorder with desktop/tab recording and audio and webcam insertion. Free lets you save webm's locally, pay for other options
Awesome Screenshot - Capture, crop, and annotate screenshots
Pushbullet for Android
Push, as in send individual things to the PC (or another device) immediately via the share action?
The original is <strong>Pushbullet</strong>/<strong>Portal</strong>, but many here took issue when they started charging $5/mo for large file transfers, unlimited SMS/WhatsApp/Kik replys from the PC, notification actions on the PC, and universal copy/paste. However, basic stuff like pushing links and files smaller than 25MB work just fine for free, and this might be exactly what you're looking for.
The current sub favorite is <strong>Join</strong> (IAP of $4.99 with a 30 day free trial) for basically acting like a more feature-rich clone of Pushbullet, but with a one-time charge instead of a subscription.
However, if you mean Push as in manage LOTS of photos & files at once, then I'd suggest a proper file manager like the free <strong>Amaze File Manager</strong> or paid <strong>Solid Explorer</strong> (with its <strong>FTP plugin</strong>) instead. These let you start an FTP (or other) connection for browsing your phone's contents from the PC without plugging in pesky cables.
pushbullet - to send files/links/notes between chrome (thus pc) and phone, and share it.
YSK about Pushbullet.
Pushbullet. It syncs your notifications and texts to your PC so you don't even have to use your phone while you're on your computer. It also lets you push links and files back and forth really easily. It's the one app I can't live without now.
Reddit Sync. It's my favourite reddit app, but do try the alternatives as well, they're all quite good and its up to preference.
MX Player. Plays all video files, including 1080p anime with subtitles (if your phone can handle it)
I could go on all day (I have too many apps), but I'll leave it at that for now.
Also, if you want to avoid the SMS limits, you can use Pushbullet (Android and iOS) or the IF by IFTTT app (Android and iOS) itself.
Sorry I didn't respond sooner, haven't been at my PC.
Speaking of that new tech...
Give Pushbullet a shot. Can send texts from your PC, as well as much more.
use PUSH BULLET.
I use Pushbullet. How is 'Connected Devices' different from it?
Ahh, well in that case you can still use Push Bullet or e-mail the files to yourself :]
Pushbullet (for sharing content and getting updated about stuff via IFTTT ) and Pocket (for saving articles offline).
Use Pushbullet instead.
Pushbullet, but thats sending stuff from the computer. Not sure about over WiFi/Data.
The only thing I can think to do is reseat all the screen connections. I tried searching around and someone had a similar problem here, there are a few suggestions but not really any resolution. Mentioned though is a possible proximity sensor problem but in your case it seems unlikely. It might be something to keep in mind though when you're reassembling your phone. There's a thread here which describes the proximity sensor problem & reassembly with a resolution on page 2.
If you're still able to interact with the screen then at least taking calls should be possible. If you are somehow able to download Pushbullet (maybe through a method described here) or through a screen sharing method described here, you'd be able to send/receive texts from your computer. It's difficult and not practical but throwing it out there.
At the very least, ask on Kijiji/Craigslist if anyone can spare an old phone. If you have $30-60 dollars it is possible to get a very capable used phone like a Galaxy S3 on there. Make sure to check if it works first. Checking a thrift store might not be a bad idea either. I bought a Nokia C3 for $5 to use temporarily, at least the battery life on it was better than the N4.
Sorry, I couldn't be more help. Hope things work out.
There are apps that can do this. Pushbullet is one of them and can sync way more than calls and texts. Check it out. [link]
Personally, I use a combination of the Pushbullet app + the Sync for Reddit app.
The Sync for Reddit app sends me a notification on my phone when new mail has been received, and then Pushbullet sends a notification to all the devices I have it configured for.
For example, when I get Reddit mail, I get a notification on my phone, my main PC, and my HTPC.
I never use my browser for notifications since I'm not always at my browser. My phone is much more reliable and convenient for notifications since it's on and monitoring 24/7.
Pushbullet is another option.
It is, here: [link]
Have you tried PushBullet?
I actually do this, but the approach is 'complicated' for just this task. I use this setup to automate other aspects, but I will share this here anyways, in case you don't mind the work.
It sounds complicated, but it really isn't, and I use this approach for many other tasks.
The PushBullet channel for IFTTT doesn't support triggers, if it did, you would only need the PushBullet app installed (IFTTT or PushBullet team, if you are watching, please add a trigger!). Maybe you can use the IFTTT app (which has been unreliable for me), or the Zapier service, which has support for some channels IFTTT doesn't.
Also consider looking at Tasker+AutoRemote.
Which lighting system do you have?
Your Pushbullet link is linking to Wunderlist. Should link to this.
I'm on Fi and text from my computer using Pushbullet
pushbullet may help you, if that's what you're looking for!
Woops. Meant Pushbullet!
Pushbullet may still be useful to some people. It's still there. And depending on what you use it for, you may still be able to use the free version.
There are also many fans of Airdroid and MightyText. But Join is my preferred one.
You should definitely try them all out and see what works best for you.
Try Pushbullet. Though it uses internet! Here 's the play store link:
Why not Pushbullet?

Fun facts about Lamniform
They have an Android app too. You can find it at [link]
You might be able to work with this combined with IFTTT, but I have no experience with it.
Why don't you just try out Pushbullet or Airdroid?
Or you can even make Google Hangouts your default messaging app, and then I'm pretty sure you could text from your computer.
I haven't tried this, but I've heard good things. [link]
Pushbullet - Allows me to share links, files and notifications between my phone and desktop. This is a must-have app for me.
Reddit Relay - My favourite reddit app for Android. Great user interface that feels smooth and intuitive.
Amazon Appstore - Daily free apps with some really good paid apps appearing free from time to time.
VLC and MX Player - Between both programs, I can watch all my media files.
Music Folder Player - I prefer using physical folders to organize my songs, and this app gets the job done.
Swiftkey Keyboard - I've always been impressed by the word prediction in Swiftkey, and its ability to learn your word usage.
Pushbullet Pushbullet is a useful app for sending notifications between devices. For example, you can receive call and text alerts at your PC. In the same style as AutoRemote, this can be a powerful plugin. Link to Pushbullet EventGhost Plugin A Link to the playstore link. ...Please Note: I am a Bot.. To report errors or request additions, message /u/letestaccount
I use Pushbullet (for mirroring to PC) and Notifications for Android TV (for mirroring to Android TV)
AHN-TON-NEE SULLIVAN HERE. DO YOU OWN LOTS OF GADGETS, SUCH AS LAPTOPS, SMARTPHONES, TABLETS OR DESKTOP COMPUTERS?

IT WORKS ON WINDOWS, MAC, ANDROID AND AS A BROWSER EXTENSION. TRY PUSHBULLET TODAY!
In all seriousness it's a game changer for nerds like me with multiple devices.
Pushbullet is super cool.
I've used Pushbullet to sync SMS. If each device has its own SIM I can send messages using either phone whilst carrying just one, as long as both are connected to the Internet. If a single SIM is swapped between the two, I can at least see the messages from the other phone.
I'm not sure if PushBullet will allow him to send an MMS. I've never used PB, but their app page on the Play Store mentions nothing of MMS, which is what OP is trying to send, not a text (SMS).
tris app pushbullet i use it. it really does that job.
hop i helped
> receive SMSs on my desktop
Pushbullet or MightyText
>pay with my phone
Pushbullet is very handy to have.
How did nobody include Pushbullet? Such a great app for moving things between multiple devices. It's really nice that I can just push a YouTube link from my phone to my computer and it keeps playing.
