Windows 10 Users Can Now Mirror Content from an Android Phone to PC Using Microsoft’s Your Phone App

By August 15th, 2018 AT 3:02 PM

Your Phone application by Microsoft has been silently made available for mainstream Windows 10 users. Microsoft’s Your Phone app, which gives a seamless experience between smartphones and their PCs is now available for Windows 10 users, at least the 1803 ‘Spring Creator Update’ has it. According to an IANS report, the feature is available in the United States at the moment, but it’s expected to be made available for other countries as well. Microsoft has been testing the Your Phone app for Windows 10 as part of the upcoming Redstone 5 update, which is expected to be released this fall.

The tech giant had been testing “Your Phone” app as part of the company’s upcoming Redstone 5 update for Windows 10, but it now appears it will be made broadly available without the requirement for a future update, according to The Verge.

“Microsoft hasn’t publicised the availability of ‘Your Phone’ to non-Insiders as of August 14. But I — along with a number of other Android phone users who are not running an Insider preview of Windows 10 on their PCs — were able to get the app to work after seeing a post about its availability,” ZDNet reported, according to IANS.

For the unaware, Microsoft’s Your Phone app is designed to allow Android and iOS devices to more tightly synchronise with Windows 10 computers. Not only synchronisation, but Your Phone app will also allow users to make calls, send and receive SMSs and manage their photo library.

Users can download the “Your Phone” app for Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store and subsequently connect their smartphones to it. Users with the latest 1803 ‘Spring Creator Update’ located in the US can head over to Microsoft Store and download the app for free, but at the moment, only Android users can mirror the content as iOS support hasn’t been added by Microsoft yet.
