OPPO launches PC Connect, a new computer/smartphone link for ColorOS 12

OPPO had hinted at a "PC Connect" feature to be introduced alongside its latest UI for smartphones, ColorOS 12. Now, this new facility has officially been launched. This "seamless" syncing, sharing and workflow app for compatible Android devices and computers will not actually be released until 2022, however.

OPPO has announced that it has seen users of its smartphones with their multiple devices all needing to do at least part of one thing with its new PC Connect feature. The OEM has now confirmed that the new term does indeed refer to a tool that makes sharing, syncing and working on both a device from its brand and a desktop or laptop much easier.

To this end, the new facility is now depicted as this OEM's answer to Microsoft's Your Phone, or to the latest aspects of Samsung's One UI 4. However, unlike the latter, PC Connect seems to be platform-agnostic as far as the device with the bigger screen goes. In fact, OPPO has yet to publicly finalize its software or hardware requirements, so it cannot be said whether the feature is, for example, Windows-only at this point.

What is more certain is that a user's phone would need to be on ColorOS 12 to use PC Connect. This can be done by downloading a new PC app via https://connect.oppo.com/en-US. However, they will only be able to do so from about February 2022 onward.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
