AirDroid 2 exits beta with device management from a desktop browser

AirDroid is an Android app that allows you to manage your smartphone using a regular desktop browser. Using the app will allow you to do things such as transfer files, however it also has some slightly more interesting features such as being able to send and receive SMS messages from that same desktop browser. That said, the folks at Sand Studio have recently rolled out the latest update for AirDroid, which has landed in the Google Play Store as version 2.0.

AirDroid v2 Beta now available with Find Phone and Camera access

The AirDroid app is currently available in the Google Play Store. However those looking to play with the upcoming release can grab the APK file and get in on the beta access. The AirDroid beta is version 2, which up until recently, was available only with an invitation. Well, the invitation-only requirement has been lifted and that means you can now play with AirDroid v2 and the new features including remote camera access and Find Phone.

AirDroid updates with easier browser access

We've mentioned AirDriod before: it's a great way to access and manage your Android phone or tablet from your computer when there isn't a USB cable handy. The free app's latest update adds a host of new features, most of which are designed to make accessing your phone from your desktop browser even easier. In addition to a permanent shortlink to web.airdroid.com, you can now scan a QR code displayed on your computer monitor instead of entering a random password.
