Today, Pushbullet received it’s biggest update ever. The improvements we’ve made are found at every level of Pushbullet and we’re extremely proud of the results. You’ll feel the difference right away.
In this post I’m going to take you through the biggest improvements we made to each app. Let’s get started with…
Pushbullet was built to connect. It was built because even though technology is meant to make our lives easier, the basic act of sending things can sometimes be hard. We have phones, tablets, and computers. We have Apples and Androids. Connecting all of these devices and platforms is the reason we exist.
We built Portal with a sole purpose—to make getting files onto your phone effortless, even if those files are very large or you have lots of files you want to transfer. See it in action here:
Getting a picture or file from your Mac onto your phone should be really easy. Right now though, often the easiest way is to just email it to yourself and we think that’s sad.
With the Pushbullet Mac app, you can easily drag-and-drop files to get them onto your phone (or tablet, or even another computer). Today, we’ve now made this even easier–just right-click on a file, then just select Pushbullet in the Share menu! Here’s how it looks, using Yosemite’s new Share Extension support:
A few weeks ago, we enabled replying to messages from WhatsApp, Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, Line, and Telegram. This feature makes it easy to respond to messages from friends and family even when you don’t know where you left your phone (we’ve all been there). Today, GroupMe and BBM join the list of apps we support!
You can now reply to messages on WhatsApp, Hangouts, and a bunch more messaging apps right from the Pushbullet notification on your computer.
