Younity Launches Android Version Of Home Media Server

March 30, 2016 - Written By Justin Diaz

If you have and use multiple devices, whatever the purpose, it can be a little challenging sometimes to make sure you have access to everything you need from whatever device you have on you at the precise time you need it. With a new Android app called Younity, launching today, that becomes a little easier as it’s essentially a home media server that allows you to access all of your most important files that are stored on your PC or laptop (similar to Google Drive), from other devices like your smartphone or tablet. With a full list of features Younity even lets users stream content, and the client app for the computer is available through PC and Mac.

Aside from having access to the files and documents stored on your computer from your mobile devices, Younity lets users stream all kinds of content, including music, their videos, and slides of photos. What’s more, is that the app can be particularly useful for those who are users of iTunes, as Younity even lets you stream all of your content from iTunes stored on your computer at home or at work to your Android device. Users can also browse through photos that are stored in their Apple photos library as well as the pictures which are stored within Lightroom if they happen to use that particular program.

While Younity can be great for accessing tons of different files which are stored on a personal computer, it allows for users to access any files that are stored across multiple computers as well, making it a little more useful for anyone that has multiple machines that they work off of. Younity makes everything easy to find as it keeps all of the files associated with it after setup in one organized folder within the Younity application, and if at any point users want to access those files without the need for an internet connection, any file can be downloaded from the home media server to the Android device for later access offline. The setup process is said to be fairly straightforward and easy to configure, and all users have to do to get started is head to the getyounity web page to begin by installing the computer client.
