Logitech Flow is a feature part of the Logitech Options app that allows you to share your mouse and keyboard across devices over the network without the need to have multiple peripherals on your desk.

You will need at least a compatible Logitech mouse or keyboard connected using the Unifying USB receiver or Bluetooth to use this feature. Currently, supported mice include MX Master 3, MX Master 2S, MX Ergo, MX Anywhere 2S, M585 Multi-Device Silent, Multi-Device M590, and M720 Triathlon. Supported keyboards include MX Keys, Craft, K780, K380, K375s, and MK850.
