Usually, integration between Android devices and Windows 10 originates with Microsoft. Recent Windows Insider builds have made Android smartphones work almost as well with Windows 10 as Microsoft’s own Windows 10 Mobile, and so one might expect the Redmond company to be the biggest supporter of cross-platform solutions. However, it seems that LG has its own ideas of how to make an Android device work well with Windows 10.
If you’re unaware, LG makes a number of Android smartphones including the G4, G5, and V10. Now, LG has introduced LG VPInput, a tool to enable their smartphones to be remote controlled from a Windows 10 device:
VPInput is a great way to remotely control your Android Smartphone with the mouse and input text with the keyboard on your PC. You also have the ability to send an immediately captured screen image of your Android Smartphone and share the clipboard text between your Android Smartphone and your PC.
The remote control works via Bluetooth but does not require an internet connection.
The apps features are as follows:
1. Remotely control your Android Smartphone with the mouse on your PC
2. Remotely input text on your Android Smartphone with the keyboard on your PC
3. Share the Clipboard text between your Android Smartphone and your PC
(ex. CTRL+C, CTRL+V)
4. Send an immediately captured screen image of your Android Smartphone
5. Designate a shortcut of your Android Smartphone application on your PC
(ex. Press F1, execute Call application)
You can download VPInput here for your Windows 10 machine. LG doesn’t specify if the solution only works with their Android devices, and so if you own another then you can always give it a try. Let us know in the comments if you get this solution to work and what you think of it.
