KDE Connect now available in beta form for Windows, and can be downloaded from your store

KDE Connect on the Microsoft Store

I remember many years ago, when a Samsung executive was caught tweeting from an iPhone, who excused himself saying that he was doing it for the ecosystem, and that Samsung phones were better. Everyone may have an opinion, but I think that it is not misguided: the way in which Apple devices communicate with each other makes things much easier, and the closest thing there is in Linux is to use Google services on the desktop and mobile phones or, also, use KDE Connect.

KDE Connect is an application that connects an Android phone with a Linux computer to perform some actions, such as receiving notifications or sending messages. It's been around for a long time on Linux, for a couple of years works on macOS and today they have announced their arrival at the Microsoft Store, the Windows 10 app store.

KDE Connect connects your Android phone with your PC

Now KDE Connect can connect your Windows machine too! The Windows version of KDE Connect is officially supported, and you can get the beta version right now from the Microsoft Store. Exclusive link-only access: microsoft.com/store/apps/9N9

Shortly after the macOS version, KDE Community released a preview version of their KDE Connect for Windows, but it was not until today March 29, 2021 that they announced their official support. Although it includes the «Beta» label, It can also be used in the Microsoft system with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they support the software.

Probably, if it took so long to upload this version to the official store, it is because Windows 10 already includes a native tool which does some of the things the KDE proposal does. Whatever the reason, now it does not matter what operating system our desktop computer has, as long as we work on one of the Windows, macOS or Linux. We can connect our Android phone, with this app from Google Play, and take advantage of what KDE Connect offers us.
