Microsoft’s ‘Your Phone’ app for Windows 10 allows for greater connectivity between your PC and smartphone. The idea is to enable users to interact with content on their smartphone without requiring them to use the device as long as it’s connected to their Windows 10 PC wirelessly. Checking notifications is why most of us pick up our phones so many times every day and that’s just going to get a bit easier with the latest update to the app.
The latest update for Your Phone now brings the ability to mirror notifications from an Android smartphone to a Windows 10 PC. This functionality has been in testing for a couple of months now and it’s finally being made available to all users starting today.
The feature doesn’t impose any restriction on the types of notifications that can be mirrored to a PC. Do bear in mind, though, that quick replies aren’t supported just yet. However, support for quick replies should arrive in the not too distant future, thus making this functionality even more useful.
Users should also keep in mind that if they want to use this functionality, they will need to make sure that they’re using Windows 10 April 2018 update or later and Your Phone app version 1.19052.657.0 or later.
