DesktopSMS Free is available to evaluate all the app functionality for free and for an unlimited period of time. This allows everyone to confirm whether the application is compatible with their Android device, whether the connection types available are working as expected, and, of course, whether the app suits the user's needs and preferences. But, the Free version comes with some limitations, such as maximum message length or a maximum number of recipients per single message. Upgrading from DesktopSMS Free removes those limitations and unlocks the full potential of the app.


DesktopSMS supports a wide range of connection types that can be used to connect DesktopSMS Client and DesktopSMS Lite remote devices. Wireless connections such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth are the most common and well known, but it is also possible to connect over USB cable or even over wired LAN network using USB-C Ethernet adapter (if supported by your Android device). All of the connections are easy to set up, but some of them, such as USB connection, require additional setup on remote Android devices. In this article, we will discuss all supported connection types, their pros, cons, and all the required steps to set them properly up.
