With SideSync, you can use your phone’s features on your computer after receiving alarms of your phone through the PC. Besides, you can easily make phone calls and send text messages on your computer after the PC and mobile device are connected with SideSync.

Samsung SideSync can be used on a Windows PC and Mac. To use this tool to share files between your PC and phone, you need to make sure both devices have installed this app. Then, use a USB data cable or Wi-Fi to connect two devices.
