Pushbullet makes it easy to send messages to all your devices, but now you can automate the process. The newest version of Pushbullet comes with support for Tasker, because manually pushing things between your internet-connected devices is for chumps.

To automate a Pushbullet message, you can add it as an action to any task created in Tasker (it's under the Plugin header). You can choose which device to push to, or push to everything. You'll need to have Tasker installed to take advantage of this feature, obviously. Wondering what can be done with Tasker support in Pushbullet? Here are some ideas.

  • Send an alert to all of my devices if any device's battery gets below 10%
  • Forward any SMSs I receive to my tablet
  • Broadcast a missed call to all of my devices
  • Send an alert to someone when I arrive at a location (an automatic "I'm at work safely" message)
  • Alert me when my device's storage is low
  • Send an alert to my computer when there are app updates
  • Send alert to others to remind them of an event

Tasker is an incredibly powerful app, so this is really just scratching the surface. Pushbullet is still a completely free app, but Tasker is $2.99.
