Did you ever think it was possible for Android apps to appear on your Windows 10 PC? Microsoft is going to make this happen with its Your Phone app. The company demonstrated this app in October last year. It basically allows an Android phone’s screen to be mirrored to a Windows 10 PC. Microsoft has now started testing this functionality for PCs.
The latest updates for the Your Phone app allows Android users to mirror their phone’s screen directly to a PC. It’s making the “phone screen” feature available to Windows Insiders this week. Those who want to try it out will require the latest test builds of Windows 10 and the Your Phone app.
The app directly mirrors an Android phone’s screen to a Windows 10 PC. It also shows a list of the apps on the phone so that users can access them easily in the remote session of their phone that’s being mirrored to the PC.
The Your Phone app mirrors Android to Windows 10 PCs through Bluetooth with Low Energy Peripheral. This means that not a lot of PCs will be able to run the test builds as they won’t have support for this. The app itself is limited to select devices which include the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S9, and the Galaxy S9+ from Samsung. Microsoft says that it will expand the list of phone and PC devices down the line.
