Do you wish to connect your phone to your PC on Android, then this app is all you need. You can do so many with this new app update. It connects your Android phone to your computer's desktop so you can answer phone calls and reply to text messages remotely with the help of third-party app AirDroid, which recently got a major update to version 3.0.

The update brings really neat new features that let you answer phone calls, send files, respond to texts and more all right from your PC or Mac desktop. I'll explore some of the most interesting features in AirDroid 3, and help you get the most from them. You'll need to download the free app on your Android phone or tablet and the free desktop client for Windows or Mac. You can use AirDroid from the company's Web portal, but for the features I'm discussing here, you'll need the desktop program.

Either create a new AirDroid account, or log into your existing one on both the desktop and mobile apps and follow the set-up processes in both. The mobile app will ask permission to access your notifications, which is crucial for the system's new features.

You can view all of your phone's notifications in AirDroid. New notifications also pop up on your screen as well. One of AirDroid's best features is that it can display notifications from your phone on your desktop. That way you can see messages, Instagram likes, calendar alerts, emails, Facebook notifications and more without picking up your phone.

Once you install the AirDroid app, it will ask for permission to read your notifications. It's as simple as flipping a switch and your notifications will appear on your computer's desktop, right alongside your other windows. You can choose which app's notifications appear on your desktop, turning off those that you don't want to bother you. Most notifications show up for a few seconds before disappearing. There's an alert tone turned on by default, but if you find it annoying, you can shut it off.
