AirDroid 3 Makes It Even Easier to Manage an Android Phone from the Desktop

AirDroid has been a hugely popular tool that lets you connect your Android device to your PC over a WiFi network. While you can always use the USB connection method, AirDroid helps you get rid of these cables and make everything work wirelessly. Recently, the company launched version 3 of the tool, dubbed AirDroid 3. As with every new version, the tool brings a host of new features to the table to make communication even more easier and faster.

Here’s a run-down of the features that AirDroid 3 brings for its users.

Windows and Mac Clients


Up until now, you had to use one of the browsers on your Windows PC or Mac to be able to communicate with your Android device. With the launch of AirDroid 3, you now have native clients for both Windows and Mac. Just go and get one of these clients installed on your computer, and you should be good to go. Since these clients work like the other apps you have on your computer, you will receive notifications for the actions on your device, end-to-end encryption so your data doesn’t get stolen, and so on.

Device Mirroring


While the web browser method allows you to perform certain actions on your device, the device mirroring feature now lets you mirror your entire device on your computer. By doing so, you will be able to use your device as if it is a part of your computer. You can then do tasks like replying to messages, sending messages via WhatsApp, and doing literally everything that you can do on your device. What makes this interesting is that you can now write your messages using the physical keyboard on your computer, so this will definitely help you speed up your typing.

In order for device mirroring to work, your device must be rooted.

The Obvious But Great Features


The tool retains all of the features that it has been carrying for years. It includes transferring files from and to your computer, SMS management, call alerts, and the ability to view contacts stored on your device. To make it easy to navigate through all of these features, the tool comes with a revamped interface that makes it darn easy for you to make use of all of these great features.

Many Bug Fixes and Improvements

While developers try their best to keep their tools as bug-free as possible, there are some things that don’t always work as they’re supposed to. With this new version, the tool comes with a number of bugs fixed and brings improvements to make the whole experience enjoyable for you.


While there are a number of ways to connect your Android device to your PC, the one that stands out with its excellent features is AirDroid. We highly recommend you check it out, and let us know how it works for you in the comments below.
