Running Android device on computer by using Mobizen Life Hub


The following tutorial will show how to run your Android mobile or tablet on a computer to be able to use all the device's functionality through the mouse and keyboard of a computer.

To be able to run Android on your laptop or desktop using the Mobizen Beta Life Hub app, you need the device and the PC to be connected to the same Wi-Fi router and the PC should be connected to the Internet as well.

This works on both Windows and Mac PCs.

Grab the Mobizen app for your Android device for free from here:

(This does not work with all Android devices and you will need to check the compatibility of your device before going further. In any case, you have nothing to lose by trying out the steps mentioned below.)

Steps to do:

Install the above app on your Android device.

After installation, go to Android's home screen or App list wherever Mobizen is installed.

    1. It is not compatible with my Asus Fonepad 7 Dual SIM either, something that the developers of Mobizen can work on in the future. However, it is very difficult for me to mark out which devices are compatible and which aren't.

    1. Hi Memots

      I am sorry I did not understand your comment in entirety. If you are looking to run Android on your Windows system without having an Android device, the following post might help you, however it has nothing to do with the Mobizen app mentioned above.

      The Mobizen post is meant for someone who wants to control his Android phone/tablet from a computer to be able to use the computer's large sized screen and keyboard.

      I hope I have answered your query correctly. Do feel free to write for any more assistance.

      Thanks & Regards
