by Fahad Saleem

Millions of people around the world want to use Android on big screens of their PC. Android being essentially a mobile platform does not allow a fluid user experience in PC screens. There are a few tips and third party apps using which you can install Android on your PC, but nothing provides a seamless and smooth experience. But a new startup called Jide which is run by ex-Googlers took this task head on and have made an efficient operating system based on Android which is specially designed and scaled for PC.

Remix OS is just a tweaked version of Android. When you will install it in your PC and run it, you will get to use Android-styled apps and software.

Task Bar, Start-Menu Like Interface

All the apps can be accessed from the lower left corner of the task bar. You can also install all Android apps from the Play Store and enjoy them on big screens. Remix OS has a taskbar, a start-button like pane  based on the Windows style. You can use multiple screens just like in windows. The task bar tray and menu helps you to locate the apps and make sense of the new operating system. This is usually easier for the Windows users. On the right lower corner, you can access notifications, sound, keyboard, language selection and calendar, just like we do in Windows.

Lollipop Based X86-Android

Remix OS is based on X86-Android version. Remix OS is based on Android Lollipop. It houses more than 1.6 million native Android apps, but you can of course chose and select the apps.
