The famous second screen app Duet Display is finally launched on Android, enabling users to turn their smartphone or tablet into an extra monitor for their laptop or desktop. This service was only available to the iOS users, but just after the launch of Apple’s own second screen app, the company was forced to change its focus to Android.
For those, who don’t know what the Duet Display app is? Duet Display was launched as a way for Apple users to connect their iPad to their Mac computers. Once connected, the tablet can be used as a second screen for the PC, extending the display real estate for the laptop and opening the door for some unique usage scenarios, such as accessing the desktop version of Photoshop on the iPad.
But recently, Apple launched its own second-screen app – Sidecar that allows users to utilize an iPad as a second screen for Macs. That free, native feature made Duet Display completely pointless for Apple users. Duet Display brings support for touch controls and gestures; users are able to utilize their fingers or a stylus with a tablet.
It’s perhaps no surprise, then, that Duet has instead turned its sights to Android, which is now supported by the software. Android and Chromebook users can download the Duet Display Android app from the Play Store for $9.99 USD, enabling them to extend their PC or Mac to the smaller device. This is made possible with the free Duet desktop client that needs to be installed on the main computer.
