Hands-on: Universal Control – macOS Monterey's most exciting feature!
In this video, I show how to enable Universal Control, and walk through some of its exciting new features. Keep in mind that this is a workaround to enable Universal Control in the macOS Beta, and it is not officially available yet in beta, and doesn’t yet work for iPad. However, from my hands-on experience, Universal Control works fairly well, and enough is there to get a good idea of how it will work.
Extra special thanks to developer Zhuowei Zhang’s Ensemble.plist download:
