Ever get sick of using apps with the small screen on your smartphone? If you’re an Android user, there’s now a solution. You can duplicate your Android device’s display on your desktop with a new Chrome extension called Vysor.

The extension was first leaked on Reddit and its creator, Koushik Dutta, an established Android app developer, has now set up a website for users to download Vysor. It’s still in beta and you will need to plug in your Android device to a PC via a USB cable to get it working. It goes without saying that Vysor is only compatible with the Google’s Chrome browser.

Vysor is a godsend for people, like myself, who loathes typing out long messages on a smartphone screen and prefer the control of a keyboard or want to play games on a larger screen.

Below is a video which gives you more details on how Vysor works:

You can get the Vysor extension over at the Chrome Web Store.
