Microsoft’s Your Phone app for Windows 10 is one of best new Windows features in years. If you own an Android phone, this app will allow you to pair your smartphone with your PC and synchronize your phones notifications, texts, calls, and more so that you can see them right on your desktop.
Your Phone is a feature that Microsoft touts as being a productivity enhancer, as syncing your phone to your PC means you’ll spend less time pulling your phone out of your pocket to see why it vibrated. Once Your Phone is configured, you’ll be able to interact with content on your phone as if that content was native to your PC to begin with.
For example, through Your Phone, I can see 30 of my recent photos taken on my smartphone, and can open, edit, and insert them into documents and other programs if needed. My phones notifications also show up as Windows notifications, and in some cases, allow me to respond to them without even opening the Your Phone app.
