Recently, Microsoft introduced the ability to 'stream' Android apps from the linked smartphone. Initially available to Insiders, the feature is now rolling out to everyone.
On select devices it is now possible to instantly access your phone’s mobile apps directly from your Windows 10 PC. There’s no need to install, sign-in or set up your apps on your PC. You can conveniently pin your favorite mobile apps to your Taskbar or Start menu on your PC for quick and easy access. When you launch an app, it opens in a separate window outside of the Your Phone app enabling you to multitask. So, whether you need to quickly reply to a conversation, respond to your social posts, or order food, you can do it fast using your PC’s large screen, keyboard, mouse, pen and touch screen alongside your other PC apps.
All you need to do is to enable the Link to Windows option provided by the Your Phone app Android counterpart.
After that, pick an Android app from the 'Apps' tab on Desktop in the Your Phone app.
Starting today, Microsoft begins rolling this feature out for more users.
The newest #YourPhone feature: Apps, has started rolling out further. So some of you may see your Phone screen entry switch over to Apps (even if you're not a Windows Insider). Available on select Android devices https://t.co/2p00jSOkwn #FeatureFriday pic.twitter.com/bWArDMvBWw
