Microsoft Your Phone brings Android Notifications to PC

Microsoft’s Your Phone has received an update that will now display Android phone notifications on Windows 10 PCs.

Your Phone is a Windows 10 application that allows you to wirelessly sync an Android phone to your PC. This enables media management and the ability to read and respond to text messages directly from your computer. The application also serves as a seamless way of transferring media content between your Android phone and PC. While this new update is useful, you are still unable to take action on notifications directly from a PC.

The Your Phone app is already built into your system upon downloading the October 2018 update, so all you have to do is search for it using the taskbar. It may require an update through the Microsoft store, but after that, you can simply sign in with your Microsoft account.

The app will then prompt you to type your phone number in and proceed to text you a link to the Your Phone Companion mobile app. The app works only with Android 7.0 or later.  As long as your phone and your computer are connected to the same Wi-Fi, then you’re golden.

Microsoft will soon mirror your Android phone screen allowing immediate action in a process it dubs “notification chasing.” Apple users have access to these features solely through third party software.
