There is another big Pushbullet update hitting Google Play today, and you're going to want to check this one out. The new version of Pushbullet adds a notification mirroring feature that shoots all your Android notifications over to the desktop via the Chrome extension.

Setup is super-fast, especially if you already have the Pushbullet extension on the desktop for all the other cool stuff it can do. The app will ask if you want to enable the mirroring service when it is opened after the update. You'll have to add Pushbullet to the notification listener service (Android 4.3 and higher) or Accessibility (Android 4.2 and lower). The app will provide a link to the settings page, though. The upside is that you don't need to even be on the same WiFi network – as long as you're logged into the extension, your notifications will show up.

By default Pushbullet mirrors every notification, so you'll want to head into the settings and disable mirroring for apps that run persistent notifications, as well as anything else you don't want to see popping up on your computer all the time. There's also an option to shut off the mirroring service entirely if you don't want to use it anymore. You will probably only want to run this on one device at a time, otherwise you'll get duplicate notifications.

In addition to the new headlining feature, the updated Pushbullet also brings a new tablet-optimized interface and better notifications settings. Yes, you can choose the notification sound or disable it entirely. New stuff and responding to user demands. That's service.
