You might not believe it, but with the way technology has advanced over recent years, you no longer have to connect a smartphone to a computer. By taking advantage of the cloud services, you can sync almost everything without physically connecting a smartphone to a computer. Ever.
I didn’t know that was fact until I read it, because I, like you, still plug my cables into the computer to get most of my jobs done. Even though I’ve read that it is possible to sync just about everything without connecting, I’m likely still going to connect. Why would I do that? Because I’m lazy and I don’t want to take an additional ten minutes out of my day to learn something new. I prefer to keep the knowledge I know and continue doing my daily tasks the old way; the way that probably takes longer because I refuse to adapt to technology.
If that sounded more like an embarrassing confession to you than words of wisdom, that’s because you are right. Now that I’ve been completely honest with you, I can see that by reading over my own writing that I sound pretty stupid. It would be far wiser of me to just learn how to sync Android with Windows 10 and get my jobs done quicker and more efficiently. You too should learn how to sync Android with Windows 10. You’ll be glad you took the extra ten minutes out of your life for the greater good in the future.
HOW TO SYNC ANDROID WITH WINDOWS 10
- The answer is syncing Android with Windows 10 is Microsoft’s OneDrive. They call it OneDrive because it gives you one drive for all of your files to access anywhere.
- Create and sign into your OneDrive account.
- Once you sign up to OneDrive, you get 15 GB’s for free. That’s 15 GB’s worth of space free for you to store your files.
- Those of you who require more space can get loads of it. For $1.99 a month, you can get 100 GB’s worth of space. Of course, as with most business deals, the higher you go with space, the better the deal becomes. You can get a terabyte for $6.99.
- Microsoft’s OneDrive has come a long way over the years. Some manufacturers of smartphone and tablets are loving OneDrive so much that they are including OneDrive in the mobile devices along with the stock Android. It’s similar to Google Drive and Dropbox only owned by Microsoft.
- Microsoft’s voice assistant, Cortana, is better at some things than other voice assistants even though many prefer to stick with other personal assistants. One of the areas Cortana excels at is asking her to save things to your calendar. From there Cortana can have that information synced across all of your devices with your Microsoft account.
- The one service I’ve been using for years to host my files for working online is Google Drive. Like Microsoft’s OneDrive, Google Drive gives you a limited amount of free storage space. If you don’t want to pay the premiums of going on a paid service, just delete the files you no longer need to free up some more space. Just be sure to check those files aren’t attached to any important documents or blogging articles being viewed by thousands of people first. Google Drive is also available for Android and Windows 10. Once you’ve downloaded Google Drive, it will end up in your file structure and start syncing files.
