Business leaders not only work with the latest tech gadgets but often have to learn how to manipulate several devices at the same time to better the business and control the organization's operations with ease. The fact that many companies benefit from modernization is a real advantage to tech development and one efficient task that can now be achieved is installing a mobile app on your Android device via your computer.
How Google enables you to control your mobile phone via a computer is often overlooked by many users. This tutorial will show you how you can download, send, and install a new app to your Android device without even touching it. Sound like magic? It’s the marvel of technology.
To begin, make sure your phone is logged into your Google account. This account is an all-inclusive one, with which you can access your email, blog, Google+ account and even Google Play, Android’s marketplace for all its mobile apps. Your Google account is also your gateway into the installation of a new app from your desktop.
To log into your Google account from your smart phone, follow these simple steps:
- Go to Settings > Accounts > Google > Add Account.
- Type your email address and password to connect through the sign-in page.
- On your computer go to Google Play and check the upper right corner of your display and click Sign in.
- Sign in again to your Google account to be able to connect with your mobile phone.

- Go to the Categories section and choose from the option that suits you in the drop down menu.
- A number of apps will be displayed, so choose the one which you would like to instal on your phone.
- Click Free (or the price of the app). Remember not to click the app itself but the underlined price under each application.
- You will be directed to a list of devices logged into the same Google account. Choose from these devices where you want the app to be installed. Hit Install for free apps and Buy for paid ones to install directly to your mobile device.
- Voila! You have just downloaded an app from your computer to your phone. Keep both devices logged in for easy access anytime, anywhere.
