Hmmm, so this seems like a bug in the Android app. "Connect from another
device" is the correct option. It works for me, but you're getting
"Can't find account" when you put the correct PIN in the field?

This may be a bug, but to start with, do you have the latest versions of
Jami on all of your platforms?

Yes, this is possible. The 40-bit Hex number is your Jami Id but you can
choose a display name and/or register a username, as well as link all of
your devices to the same account. But to start with, can you make sure
you have the latest apps on your platforms and try it again? And then
we can see if we need a bug report or other next steps.
