Using Pushbullet: Getting it up and running !

Please white list Appchoose in your adblocker.
Pushbullet, is essentially an app you never knew you required. 
As the name suggests it pushes something, well! it pushes/transfers every notification/files between devices in which same pushbullet account is signed in or between multiple pushbullet users .i.e. for example lets say you get a whatsapp message in one of your devices having pushbullet signed in, then you will get the same as pushbullet notification in all other devices in which the same pushbullet account is signed in (you also have the option to select the devices to be sent to), the best part is you can even respond to a notification. 
It also allows you to share files between your devices and with other fellow pushbullet users, the former preventing the need for messaging yourself or something like that.

The app setup process is explained below:

Step1: Sign in to pushbullet either using your Google account or Facebook account. After signing in, it will display a screen telling you to, go to to log in to pushbullet on your computer or another device you may have. In between it will ask for notification access(obvious).
Step 2: A blank screen like the one shown in accompanying screenshot will appear. It means that pushbullet has been setup in your phone/tablet.
To push something from here to your other device(s). Just tap on the "+"  button and an interface similar to that shown below in the browser will appear. 

Now head over to your computer or other device you wish to set it up.

The device on which we will be setting up Pushbullet is a PC running Windows 10.

 Step 3: In your PC go to Pushbullet homepage. Sign in from the PC, here also you get the same options to sign in.Select the same account that you selected on your phone.i.e if you logged into your phone using your google+ account, in pc also login in via your google+ account.

Step 4: Now head over to their homepage and download and install Pushbullet extension in the browser of your choice.
Step 5: Upon installation, the Pushbullet icon will appear in the browser near the url. Each new notification will be mirrored to your PC. 
For pushing anything from your PC to your phone, select the devices you wish to push it to. 
Default is "All of my devices". 
You can change it the same way as you would edit the recipients in gmail app. 
After selecting the recipients, Just select what you would like to push file/link/note and add the file or enter the note or enter the link.
To send a URL to another device as a push tap on the pushbullet button in the browser when you are at the URL you wish to share and it will be shared as soon as you hit push it!

Step 6: After a successful setup your account when signed in via the browser should look like the one displayed in the screenshot.The popup notification is also visible in the screenshot shown above.

Pushbullet clients for various devices and browsers can be downloaded from here.
