Microsoft Your Phone gets Android app support on Windows

New Update Allows Windows Insiders To Stream Android Apps On PCs

Samsung has announced that Windows 10 PCs will soon be able to display and mirror Android apps from a phone. The users will also be able to pin the apps to the Windows 10 Start menu or the taskbar, for easy access. Meanwhile, you can find out all the Samsung Galaxy devices that support "Link to Windows" here.

The cool thing about these mirrored apps is that they run in their own windows, so they act more or less like regular computer apps. Microsoft's Your Phone app and Link to Windows integration on select Samsung devices, enables you to stay in the flow by allowing you to take calls, check notifications, see photos and messages, all from your Windows 10 PC.

Nearly every year, it seems that Microsoft and Samsung extend their partnership on mobile, and this year is no different, with the two firms announcing further integration between Samsung's devices and Microsoft's services. You at the moment have to operate one particular at a time (multi-application assistance will come later on in 2020), but it can run in a window alongside other desktop apps.

Samsung is also enhancing the experience to drag and drop files between your devices. Interestingly enough, at this time, the upgraded Your Phone functionality is pretty much limited to Samsung Galaxy smartphones, with further support for the just announced Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra arriving later this year.

Samsung Reminders will also sync with Windows 10 by Microsoft Outlook, Teams, and To Do.

If you pre-buy the Galaxy Observe 20, there's an choice for a Gaming Bundle that consists of 3 months of Activity Pass Greatest as nicely as a PowerA MOGA XP5-X controller.

But the most interesting announcements, perhaps, are related to deep integration between Microsoft services and Samsung's apps.

PC running Windows 10 October 2018 Update or later. Your Phone requires latest Windows 10 Update on the PC.

Microsoft has warned users that some apps might block the casting process, and only a black screen will be visible in this case.
