While Chrome OS users can connect their Android phones to their computers to send text messages and use them as an automatic Wi-Fi hotspot, some features are missing. Compared to Windows 10 Phone, you can’t integrate as deeply with your phone with features like photo management and music playback. Some Samsung phones can copy / paste between devices and allow you to view the device screen on your computer. My note Samsung Galaxy Note 9 it works without problems.
but 9to5Google states that Chrome OS can get the Android Phone Hub – an enhanced version of what they already offer, with features very similar to the Windows 10 Your Phone app. code change This seems to be indicated by a reference to the new “call center”.
Enable call center
Provides a user interface for users to view information about their Android phone and perform actions on the Chrome OS phone.
By digging deeper, this code will also change to links to new notifications, alert badges, and task continuations. As with Windows 10, your phone appears to be able to manage your phone’s notifications from Chrome OS, and a notification may appear on your computer screen every time someone sends you a message, a Facebook message, or something similar. In Windows 10, you can choose which applications you want to be notified on your computer. However, it’s not clear where the alert badge will appear in Chrome OS.
As for the continuation of the task, this could allow Chrome OS and Android to run the task on one device and then select where they ended up on the other. Users already have the option to do so with Google Docs, for example, but since this call center is said to focus on better integration between Chrome OS and Android, I imagine something like running text on a phone, completing it, and sending it to your phone. the computer is not out of reach. (You can’t do this in Windows 10 on your phone.)
This is clearly not something that Google has confirmed or even mentioned. However, Google already allows you to do so share website between Chrome on a computer and an Android device, and vice versa, so it’s a good idea to have more built-in features that work, such as Windows 10 Your app. As 9to5Google points out, it’s strange that Google is lagging behind Windows, but hopefully it will catch up soon.
