What is KDE Connect?

KDE Connect is a project that aims to communicate all your devices. For example, with KDE Connect you can receive your phone notifications on your computer, or just use your phone as a remote control for your desktop. To achieve this, KDE Connect implements a secure communication protocol over the network, and allows any developer to create plugins on top of it. Currently there are KDE Connect clients on KDE, Android and Blackberry, and soon we will support iPhone as well.

Don't let the name deceive you - it works perfectly even without a KDE (Plasma) desktop environment. I only wish it had a way to filter out some notifications as I don't want to be informed twice of every Telegram message.

Easy and seamless way to integrate your Android phone with Linux desktop. Completely free (as in money AND as in freedom), lets you see your notifications on PC, receive and send SMS, control media playback, share files, emulate mouse and keyboard input with phone touchscreen and more!

It was needed to transfer files from smartphone to Windows 10-computer and vice versa. Without a separate TFTP-client on the computer, the application did not cope with the task.

it works a charm for single files. unfortunately multiple files have to be zipped before sending.

Lets me connect to my Android phone with surprisingly good reliability. Rock-solid and works with little to no problems whatsoever.

It actually works on windows 10. Download file: kdeconnect-kde-1.4-306-windows-msvc2019_64-cl.exe from https://binary-factory.kde.org/job/kdeconnect-kde_Release_win64/
