Please don’t ask me why, however today I was in the need to have a 3rd monitor to my current setup.
And, somewhere during these days, I remember that someone commented about using an old iPad / Android tablet as an external monitor.
We don’t do Apple at home (again, don’t ask me why!), however I still have some old Android tablets, and I decided to try some of those apps.
Note: You know the feeling about installing Android apps, you never know what’s there.
So, after a couple of tests, I found a super cool and decent solution:
SpaceDesk (see references)
I won’t bother with detailed instructions;
- Install the app on your PC, that will be the host.
- Install the app on the Android tablet (client)
- Both needs to be in the same network
- and done !
Some settings to arrange the screen
