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.
Starting September 15, this feature is now rolling out to the general public.
We are excited to announce that the Apps feature is now rolled out to everyone with supported devices (It may take up to 48hrs. to show up). It allows you to instantly access your Android phone’s mobile apps directly from your Windows 10 PC. Learn more: https://t.co/vASs8SCCVW pic.twitter.com/xUOaMmfALU
