Dell to discontinue 'Mobile Connect' service

Dell is getting out of the phone syncing game by discontinuing Mobile Connect service from January 2023


Tech Desk July 26, 2022

Dell will discontinue its 'Mobile Connect' service for users and the download option will no longer appear for users in the US, Canada and Japan after November and the service will eventually stop by January 2023.

Dell Mobile Connect, which is also known as Alienware Mobile Connect is used to sync the calls, messages and notifications from mobile to the laptop.

It was launched in 2018 and worked the best with Dell Laptops.

On its support page, the company announced, “Dell recommends uninstalling Dell Mobile Connect or Alienware Mobile Connect from both your Dell computer and mobile devices by the regional discontinue date. This frees up storage space and ensures an optimum device experience.”

While this service will be discontinued, as per The Verge, Intel has already bought the software behind Dell Mobile Connect in 2021, called Screenovate. The services by Intel are expected to be announced later this year.
