At this year’s BUILD 2018, Microsoft announced their new Windows 10 app called “Your Phone” that’s being developed to pump data from your smartphone to your Windows 10 PC.
Now, the company has announced that it’s about to bring the initial version of the Your Phone app to Windows Insiders. The users having an Android smartphone will be the first to try it and the support for iOS will be added at a later point in time.
According to Microsoft, the Your Phone app can seamlessly sync images from your smartphone. These can be dragged and dropped into Office and other Microsoft apps without any hassle.
The app will also be able to push web pages via the Continue on PC feature.
Windows Insiders with Android 7.0 and above will be to try it after installing a companion app on their smartphones. It would take a while for the Your Phone app to be available in China.
This would be Microsoft’s another attempt at improving the cross-device experience. They have already introduced the feature called Link Your Phone which lets users sync notifications and texts.
Microsoft may have lost the smartphone battle to Android and iOS, but it seems the company is still fighting it on another ground. You have seen tons of new Microsoft-made apps for Android and iOS that are gaining popularity among users.
Your Phone app will be a part of the upcoming Windows 10 Redstone 5 update releasing later this year.
