Microsoft started testing phone screen mirroring between Windows 10 and Android devices earlier this year. This functionality enables users to basically run their Android apps on their PC through a connected smartphone. It was only available for limited devices initially and the company is now expanding support for this functionality to additional devices.
Phone screen mirroring for Windows 10 is now supported for a handful of new devices which include the Galaxy S10 series as well as the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 9. The OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T are also on the list.
It has also updated the Your Phone app with support for phone notifications. The app enables the phone’s notifications to appear live native notifications on Windows, the functionality is not unlike that offered by Pushbullet.
So users will be able to see incoming phone notifications in real-time, access all of their phone notifications in one place, customize the notifications they want to receive, clear notifications individually or all at once.
For this to work, users will require an Android smartphone which is running OS version Nougat with at least 1GB of RAM. The PC needs to be running at least Windows 10 build 1803, which isn’t an Insider build, so the reach of this functionality isn’t limited.
