How to sync Zorin OS 16 to Android – Guide

My two main operating systems are Linux for desktop and Android for mobile. I depend on both of them to help me stay productive. But one thing I’ve been missing is their ability to communicate in a way that helps productivity. So when I looked at the Zorin OS developers’ latest version (read “Zorin OS 16 is exactly what a Linux desktop distribution should be”), I was impressed with how simple they made the connection between Linux and Android . Once connected, you can share files between operating systems, manage your SMS messages and much more (the only thing I would like them to add is the ability to sync contacts). Of course, I know that other desktop environments have done this feat before. In fact, KDE Connect makes it possible for you to sync Linux and Android on the KDE and GNOME desktop environments. But what Zorin OS has done is take it a step further towards ease of use. With Zorin Connect, syncing your Linux and Android devices has become incredibly simple.

Let me show you how.

I will be demonstrating on Zorin OS Pro and Android 12 (running on a Pixel device).

How to install the android app

The first thing you should do is install the Zorin Connect Android app from the Google Play Store. Install this app with the following steps:

  • Open the Google Play Store on your Android device.
  • Looking for Zorin Connect.
  • Tap Install.
  • That’s it. Open the app and go to the desktop.

    How to pair Android and Zorin OS

    In the Zorin OS desktop menu, look for Zorin Connect. Once opened, scroll through the wizard until you reach the page listing your device.

    Tap the list for your Android phone. Back on your Android device, you should see your desktop listed.

    On Android, tap your desktop entry, then tap REQUEST PAIRING. When prompted on the desktop, click Accept.

    Make sure you also tap Pair (when prompted) on your Android device. You will then see the various options available for Zorin Connect.

    If you click on the Zorin Connect icon in your desktop system tray, you will see the entry for your device. Click on this entry to reveal the various actions you can take.

    How to fix storage location error after installing Zorin OS

    You will get a desktop storage location error. This is because you have not made any local storage directory available on Android. Until you take care of it, you cannot share files between devices. To fix this, scroll to the bottom of the Android Zorin Connect configuration page for your connected device and tap File System Exposure.

    When prompted, tap OK for File System Exposure, then tap Add Storage Location.

    Tap Storage location / click to select. Locate the directory on your Android device that you want to expose to Zorin Connect and tap the directory in question. When prompted, tap Use this folder, then tap Allow and OK.

    And that’s it. You’re ready to start syncing your Android device with your Zorin OS desktop.
