Pair Your Android Smartphone to your PC to Send Text Messages

Edited by Ronniel Javier, Kirk, Lynn, Eng

Android Smartphones have a lot of cool features and applications that can be found in the Google Play market, and one of the best features that could really benefit Android users is the ability to pair your device to your PC without connecting it with your USB cable. This will allow you to actually use your PC to send and receive text messages without opening your Android smartphone. When you forget to take your phone with you, you can still text and receive messages and MMS by accessing it from any PC. To do this, you must install Android applications like browser texting, mysms and MightyText. MightyText is good to use because of the clean interface, but all of these applications are free of charge and will allow you to receive instant notification messages, see your phone battery level, and backup and restore your SMS.
