Your Phone’s Android apps on Desktop feature is now generally available

Recently, Microsoft introduced the ability to 'stream' Android apps from the linked smartphone. Initially available to Insiders, the feature is now generally available, but still remains exclusive to Samsung phones.

On select Samsung 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.

    That’s one way to fill the app void! Not complaining though.
