Microsoft’s ‘Your Phone’ App Can Now Be Tested by Any Windows 10 User
As somewhat of a surprise, Microsoft has announced it’s now allowing any Windows 10 user to download and begin testing the new Your Phone app for the operating system. Previously, the app was only available to those enrolled in the company’s Insider program, but now, as long as you have the April 2018 update running on your machine, you can give the new functionality a swing.
According to Microsoft, the Your Phone app for Windows 10 will let users mirror certain content from their Android or iOS device to their PC. For instance, you’ll be able to view your phone’s photo gallery and drag and drop an image into a PowerPoint presentation. Alternatively, you’ll be able to view your phone’s notifications and text messages and take action on them.
The company says it plans to release some sort of iOS integration in the future, but that will likely come in the form of simple website sharing and not more advanced features like what’s coming to Android.
