Better Together

Better Together helps you connect phones together to share, help and work with other people.

Plugins for Better Together let you split other services or apps into separate parts on different phones. We have included two examples:

• Videos: Watch a video on one screen, and see controls, comments, search, playlist or related videos on other phones.

• Shopping: Put your online shopping basket on one phone, and use others to easily browse through categories and items.

You can find other plugins on Google Play – we have also made examples for Chat, Games and Books.

Better Together does not need internet access or a data connection, and is completely free, with no adverts and no unnecessary permissions. The app is open-source as part of the Better Together and Digital Inclusion toolkits – see:
