    Option to only use data connection, when connected to specific Wifi.

    Adam Pine · 0 · Posted

    The reason for this being that my college's network seems to block the google messages API, so the app can't update on my laptop, if i'm on my college wifi, so it would be nice to be able to blacklist that wifi, so that if I am on it, the app will use data, instead of wifi for that wifi network only, so I don't have to turn on and off my wifi based on my location.

    Detect if a device is either online or offline

    Luca De Nardi · 3 · Last reply by Luca De Nardi

    It would be nice to have an API to be called that detects wether a device is online or offline, so that we can do further actions only if a device is actually connected to the internet and ready to perform actions

    Event for "Write Text in app on your device:

    Bino Mathew · 0 · Posted


    Need an event as well as the paramaters for "Write Text in app on your device" from Chrome extension .

    This will help to user to do whatever he wants to do with the content(Tasker commands are there ,but it doesn't allow a freeformat and need to be in AUtoapp command form?)

    ALso Not to Self also can be a specific event rather than to handle as a push notification?

    Add phone type to SMS Contacts

    Jeffrey Flynt · 0 · Posted

    I have contacts with several phones, and I see all the numbers in the filtered Contacts list on Chrome. What I don't see is which phones are mobile or cell such that I can be sure I am texting the correct number. Can this be added? I see some really old posts about this, but it seems it hasn't been added in over a year. Thx!

    Return from SMS and restore the black bar

    Jeffrey Flynt · 0 · Posted

    When I click on the Chrome app version of Join, there is a black bar across the top that says, "Devices Notifications SMS/Phone." Then when I click "SMS/Phone" I see all my messaging threads. I click on one to detail into the thread, and it has an arrow at the top to return back to where I was. However the black bar is no longer visible and the only way I've found to get it back is to exit and re-enter the app. My idea is to allow the user to go back and have the black bar menu. Thanks!

    Custom commands at the right click of the mouse

    gui eduardo · 0 · Posted

    It would be nice if we could create custom commands and they be available in the right click of the mouse. Same as AutoRemote does. For me would be possible to totally migrate from AutoRemote to Join since I only use AutoRemote because of this feature. Also you coul create the same menu for Join(Windows) to send files to another devices.

    Handled pushes. Pushes that need no user intervention

    fakuivan · 3 · Last reply by João Dias

    Add an input parameter to the "Join Received Push" plugin event to block the pushed message from generating a notification on Android. This can be pretty useful if you want to create commands that can be queried from Chrome (a "Get battery level" command for example) and are handled automatically by Tasker or Automate, these need no user intervention, so notifications are unnecessary.

    Show persistant Notifications in Join Window, but block the popup.

    Jordan Jorgensen · 0 · Posted

    Media notifications would be nice to have access to, but they pop up a lot and get in the way. I also have an app that tracks my bluetooth headphone battery level. The info would be nice to have, but it pops up every time the battery level changes.

    Notification that everything is connected and working

    Joel Levine · 0 · Posted

    I think it would be a good idea to have some sort of notification sent to the phone when your PC is booted up that all is connected and working properly.

    Ability to send request to devices in the LAN

    Steph Sven · 0 · Posted

    It would be great if we could use a local IP (eg 192.168.x.x:port) instead of URL to send messages with Join API.

    Very usefull in a home automation system to control for instance an Android TV box.

    Ability to decrypt push titles on Android.

    Ricky Brent · 0 · Posted

    I noticed while playing with encrypted pushes that while Chrome will decrypt an encrypted push title, but android will 'only' decrypt the push text, url, sms number and text, clipboard, file, files, and wallpaper (whew... that hardly feels like an only, but still!)

    Hopefully it'd be an easy fix, too.

    Ability to access files in each device connected to Join just like accessing files from FTP server.

    Vysakh P · 0 · Posted

    Remote access to files in each device from other devices connected to Join. The idea is something similar to an FTP server with anonymous access with read and write access. Files may be accessed via a browser based file manager type interface. 

    Also the idea can be extended further by letting anyone to access the device via a URL and logging in using proper credentials for total control of the device.

    Ability to control tasker tasks remotely

    Brophen Brophen · 0 · Posted

    Maybe we could have an "Other Devices" tab in Tasker that allows us to turn off/on tasks on remote devices, or create new ones.
