Windows 10 comes with a special app, Your Phone, that allows pairing your Android or iOS smartphone with your desktop computer and browse your phone data on the PC.

Recent versions of Your Phone app show a notification toast for a message received on your paired Android phone.

Your Phone was first introduced during Build 2018. The app is intended to allow users to sync their smartphones running Android or iOS with Windows 10. The app allows syncing Messages, Photos, and Notifications with a device running Windows 10, e.g. to view and edit photos stored on your smartphone directly on the computer.

Since its first introduction, the app has received tons of new features and improvements. The app supports Dual SIM devices.  In addition to the battery level indicator, and inline replies, the app is able to render the background image of your smartphone.

Some of the features of the Your Phone app are hidden for the user, but you can unblock them.

Multiple Device Support

There is a new button in the user interface, Add a device, which you can find in the app settings. Simply click on it, and the app will run a setup wizard for you.

Earlier this month, Microsoft has updated the Your Phone app with the ability to delete photos directly from the phone's memory. The change is also available for Insiders. There is no information when both features will reach consumers.

  1. I would love to pair my “tablet” to my windows PC. I imagine the scene in Avatar where the tech swipes the screen from the desktop screen to a tablet in his hand. But alas, this is just a ploy to get more personal information from you by connecting your “phone” number to your desktop pc because, it doesn’t work on a device without one.

  2. How is the other way around working? Synching one android phone with more than one Windows 10 PC? I use it in two PCs and when they are both active, notifications are completely messed up!
