Microsoft promised to bring Android notifications to your Windows 10 desktop. The company kept its promise and updated Your Phone app to mirror Android notifications on PC.
Previously, the feature allowed Windows 10 users to mirror the screen of their phone, access photos from their gallery and read text messages.
This feature is now available to Windows 10 May 2019 Update users.
Your Phone app lets you see and manage phone notifications on PC
As a quick reminder, Vishnu Nath, Director of Program Management for Microsoft Mobile and X-Device Experiences announced the feature on his Twitter account a few weeks ago.

This means that Your Phone app will now show desktop notifications from your smartphone.
Just like all the other Windows notifications, you will find these notifications in the Action Center.
Users have the option to clear these notifications one by one or all at once. However, you should keep in mind that if you attempt to clear these notifications, they will disappear from all your devices.
Initially, smartphone support was only limited to the users of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9. Now Microsoft announced that the app also supports some other handsets including Samsung Galaxy S10e, Note 8, Note 9, S10, S10+, OnePlus 6, and OnePlus 6T.
You no longer have to look at your notifications again and again on your phones. Notifications from OneDrive, Facebook and Twitter will appear directly on your screen.
