Download Intel Unison free for PC, iOS

Thanks to Unison from Intel, it is now very easy to make a smartphone communicate with a PC. With an Android mobile or an iPhone, this free app makes it easy to share images and files, send and receive text messages and make calls from the PC.

To synchronize a smartphone with a PC, many mobile manufacturers have developed their own tool such as those found at Motorola, Honor or Samsung to name a few. Microsoft has also designed its own function and even integrated it from the start into Windows 11 under the name of Connected Mobile (previously called Your Phone). A comfortable and simple solution to implement as we explain in our practical sheet. However, if it works rather well with Android devices (especially with Samsung mobiles which benefit from even more functions), it leaves out the huge share of users who use an iPhone. With this app, only the web browsing history done with Edge browser is synced. Suffice to say, it’s not much use.

Fortunately, Intel has addressed the issue. After an announcement in September 2022, the founder took advantage of CES in Las Vegas to make its brand new free application available: Unison. Its goal: to communicate Android devices and iPhones with PCs running Windows 11 in order to be able to access, from the computer, the photo gallery of the smartphone but also to be able to exchange SMS, make and receive calls, display notifications or exchange files very simply. Nice program to which only one restriction applies: only PCs running with an Intel processor can use it. Computers powered by an AMD processor are not supported.

To use Unison, a PC app is therefore essential, as is its mobile counterpart, which can be downloaded from the PlayStore or the AppStore. Here’s how to implement it.

Whether you are using an Android or iOS mobile, Intel Unison works the same way. After downloading the app on the PC, you must retrieve its counterpart on the mobile in order to communicate between the two devices through Bluetooth.

► Start by downloading Intel Unison on your PC with Intel processor and open the application. On the first screen, click Accept and continue.
