2020 proved to be a successful year for Androids as it enjoyed about 85% of the market share. Today, there are no signs of any changes, meaning the trend will continue for at least three more years. In the current fast-paced technological world, it is becoming easier to do some of the things that were once deemed impossible.

For instance, it is now possible for people to access their mobile phones remotely. Employees can now get updates from their Android devices even if they do not have the target smartphones with them.

What does it mean to remotely access a phone?

Accessing a phone remotely refers to the process of accessing key features of a mobile phone, even if the phone is not with you. This can be done through a network connection and has become increasingly popular in the recent past. One of the reasons behind that is that most employees are encouraged to work from home if possible.

How to remotely access an Android

To access an Android remotely, you need to download an app called Parallels. This app has features such as AI-based login and quick file retrieval services that allow users to remotely experience the best performance from their android devices.

The concept of Parallels is developed from the nature of humans yearning for ultra-fast yet efficient virtual services. With that, it has a smart load-balancing feature that prevents glitches and speeds up the login times, including during peak hours.
