Logitech Flow – control three computers with one mouse

By

Logitech’s new Flow app allows users who have the new MX 2S mice to control up to three computers and copy and paste content, images and documents between them.

Flow is designed to let users “mouse-over” on three separate Windows or macOS computers on the same Wi-Fi network — tablets, laptops or desktops — and cut and paste files, folders and content via Logitech’s cloud. Flow is not compatible with iOS, Android or Linux at present.

Flow is part of Logitech’s Options software that customises and enhances Logitech devices adding customised keys, gestures, and application specific settings.

Anatoliy Polyanker, global portfolio and brand director at Logitech, said, “One computer used to be enough, but we’ve moved into an era where 1-in-10 people are concurrently working across multiple computers. With Flow and a new MX mouse, you can enhance your productivity — for instance, copying and pasting files from one computer to another — helping you become more precise and focused in the multi-computer world."

Initially Flow works with the MX Anywhere and Master 2S mice, the M585 and M590 Multi-device, and selected keyboards including the K780, K735, K380, and MK850.

Cut and paste is activated by pressing Fn and a mouse key. There is no file size limitation over the same network. Data is encrypted to AES-256 for secure transfer.

The new mice feature an improved DarkfieldM High Precision tracking, which boosts the cursor speed and accuracy and increases the resolution to 4000 DPI so you can have the most versatile mouse regardless of what screen you are using. They track on any surface — even glass — and have up to a 70-day, rechargeable battery life.

Price and availability

MX Master 2S  is $149.95, and the MX Anywhere 2S is $99.95. Logitech Flow is a free download.
