Getting Started: Android Support

Please read below to find a step-by-step guide on getting started with Duet for Android.


INSTALLATION

You will need two software applications to make Duet work – one on your computer and another on your mobile device.

Download and install for Android

First, install Duet for Android – click here to download our latest version. Our android app requires your device run Android 7.0 or later. Once you download our Android app, you will need to download our free desktop app on either Mac or PC.

Download and install for Mac

Download the latest macOS version from here – requires macOS Mojave 10.14.2 or later for Android. The product does work on 10.12 and 10.13, but we do not officially support those versions if any issues are encountered.

To install the app, please double-click on the .app file, which will install Duet in your Applications folder. Once installed, you will see the app's icon in the menu at the top right of your Mac (a lowercase d with a circle around it). If you need to change any settings, click on the menu bar icon to open Duet's UI on macOS.

Download and install for Windows

Download the latest Windows version from here – requires Windows 10 or later for Android.

To install the app, please double-click on the .exe file, which will install Duet on your PC. Once installed, you will see the app's icon in the menu at the bottom right of your PC (a lowercase d with a circle around it). If you need to change any settings, click on the menu bar icon to open Duet's UI on Windows.


CONNECT DUET

To connect Duet, open the app on your Android device and make sure it is open on your desktop – you should see the icon in the system tray at the top right of your Mac or on the bottom right of your PC.

Wireless

In order to establish a wireless connection between your Android device and your desktop, follow these steps.

Wired

Connecting via cable is also possible – note, however, there's a few things to consider:

  • While ChromeOS supports wireless connection, it doesn't support wired connection against both macOS and Windows – this is due to hardware limitations.

  • Android tablets support wired connection against macOS – however, for the time being, this is not available for Windows.

  • Android phones support wired connection against macOS. This is also available on Windows, but requires following these steps.

WHAT NEXT?

You should now have a second display connected to your desktop!

Just click and drag the title bar of your apps and move them across the edge of your computer's screen to your new Duet Display.
