My Second Device Allows to Use Second Device as a Receiver

Having more than one Android is certainly not unusual. A tablet, a smartwatch, and even perhaps two smartphones are all occasionally present in our bags and pockets. And having notifications appear only on our main device is a sad reality, but thankfully everything can change with tools available here at XDA.

Bluetooth perhaps isn’t the most popular method of connecting devices, but it’s used in applications created by XDA Senior Member pacosal. M2D is a tool that allows you to see notifications from one device on another. As a perfect example, we can take tablet and mobile phone that you’re using. If your phone gets a notification, the tablet will show it on the screen. Notification mirroring isn’t the only function that this project has to offer. With M2D, you can control the multimedia system, start recording or playing sounds, and even take a picture or capture video. The developer also shared some necessary information necessary to build modules that work with M2D. Currently, the available modules can share messages sent through Viber or WhatsApp. To check out this project, you just need to install a set of applications available in the thread’s first post.

If you have more than one device and want to use the second one as a receiver, you should visit the development thread and learn more about this project.
