Reminder: Side Sync For The Galaxy S7 Is Pretty Awesome

By 09:47 Sun, 01 Aug 2021 Comments

Side Sync is nothing new. It’s been around since the Galaxy S4 and it works all the way back to the Galaxy S III as long as you’re on KitKat 4.4 and above and it’s a pretty underrated feature of the Galaxy lineup.

You can install Side Sync on a Personal Computer (PC) or Mac and it allows you to control everything about your smartphone, drag and drop files, open apps, hold phone calls, share your clipboard, and click around on a virtual version on your phone, all without root!

To acquire started:

  • Install Side Sync on your Galaxy device from the ‘Galaxy Apps’ store or Google Play Store

  • Install Side Sync on your Personal Computer (PC) or Mac from here

  • Launch Side Sync on the computer first, then launch on your device

  • Connect to your computer by using a Micro Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable

  • Control panel window appears

It’s worth noting that you don’t need to connect your phone directly to your computer, you can also connect with Side Sync over a shared Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) connection (not Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) direct). Though, the connection isn’t going to be as stable as a physical Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable. You can pair the two devices with either a QR code or a 3 digit PIN that you must enter into the Desktop app.

Once connected, the control panel shows you a few icons, and a notification center. You can dismiss notifications directly from this notification center. Clicking on a notification will launch your phone’s classy screen in a separate window and automatically open the corresponding app. From here, you can utilize the moutilize and keyboard to control your phone and hold action upon the notification as needed.

A row of icons above the notification window can be customized, you can add any app to this list of shortcuts to easily launch it correct on your phone and bring it up to your desktop classy screen automatically.

More features include “Keyboard and Moutilize Sharing” (which lets your cursor actually appear on your phone), a mobile hotspot shortcut, Call forwarding (yes, you can hold calls on your Personal Computer (PC) just like Apple’s Continuity), and opening “My Files” lets you drag and drop files (only one way, from Personal Computer (PC) to phone).
