There are literally plenty of amazing things you can carry out with your Android smartphone. Besides taking pictures, listening to music, texting and communicating, the number of activities you can simply perform with the 21st-century smartphones is too diverse. And now you can also convert your android smartphone into a wireless mouse/keyboard for PC when you are too lazy to leave your bed for adjusting the volume.
Before you continue reading this article, you must remember that this is specifically for Intel-based computers and you also need Android remote app and software to make it functional.
- Download Intel Remote Keyboard on your smartphone or tablet depending on which one you prefer to use.
- Download and set up Intel Remote Keyboard Host on your PC. Either choose x86 or x64 which solely depends on the Windows version. If you are unsure about the version, simply right-click on “My Computer” and press “Properties.” You can find out under the system section in the properties.
- Select Windows device name located in your smartphone.
- The display on your PC will then portray a large QR code on its screen that you need to scan using your Android smartphone camera allowing the devices to pair up.
This app is only a virtual trackpad and a wireless keyboard for your computer that you can utilize in either landscape or portrait mode.
Despite this wireless feature, there are a number of things to be included to turn this feature to provide maximum user friendliness. The absence of “continuous scrolling” has made it difficult for scrolling up and down large distances, and you need to tap up or down multiple times in order to get back on the top.
Lastly, there are no keys for directly adjusting the volume level and has greatly reduced the amount of convenience required for better handling. Such features are definitely going to be added in this app very soon in the future.
