Screencasting your phone to AirDroid Web was possible before but the developers thought of adding “rooting” the phone as a special requirement. That was in the first days of AirDroid which a lot of people found convenient but the process totally changed the scene. But good news to avid fans of AirDroid, the latest update brings the said feature back. Now called as ‘Screenshot’ this feature already works with non-rooted devices that are powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher.
The AirDroid v3.1.6 update brings the feature to AirDroid Web and more. You’ll notice that the Camera feature’s image quality and speed greatly improved. Previous issues concerning Contacts and Files preventing actions such as creating new contacts and detecting external SD cards were fixed already. To get started, open Screenshot on AirDroid Web. Choose ‘Start Now’ and follow the prompts. Tick on ‘Don’t show again’ if you don’t want the step to be repeated in the future.
Another related update is also now available on Mac. The AirDroid v3.2.1 update for Mac OS brings that ability to non-rooted Android devices to take advantage of AirMirror. This means you can control your Android device right on your computer.
No need to root a phone as AirMirror was improved with such additional support. Excited to use AirMirror with your unrooted Android phone? Don’t be in a hurry though. Make sure you have the latest AirDroid Mac (v3.2.1) and AirDroid Android app (v3.1.6) versions we mentioned a while ago. Set up a few things first to start AirMirror on your phone.
As usual, improvements and bug fixes were made including an optimized CPU usage for AirMirror, better scroll speed, background tasks can be viewed in the app, copying of content in an SMS notification also now allowed, and error in displaying contact photos were fixed.
Feel free to download the updated AirDroid and AirMirror to ensure that full support is available and accessible all the time.
