The upcoming Phone Link app

So, in the near future Phone Link will allow you to search through messages. There is a dedicated search box in the "Messages" pane. It will be able to show you all the messages from all senders that contain the search term you typed. This way, the stock messages app by Google works on Android. So you will have similar experience on the PC.

Also, the Messages list is organized into two categories. The upper one is for "Recent" messages, while the bottom one is called "Hidden". Perhaps it will host messages that you have already viewed. It also provides and option to unhide a "hidden" message using a special button, as you can see in the screenshot above.

The Notifications area has got a new option to clear all messages with one click. There is now the "Clear all" link about the list of notifications.

The source did not share details on when exactly Microsoft is going to release this update to the public. But, considering the rapid progress of the application development, it should not take them long.
