Windows 10 Threshold 2 Update brought one feature that strengthened Microsoft’s idea of one operating system on all devices. Namely, you’re now able to see missed calls and text messages from your Windows Phone as notifications on your Windows 10 computer.

This action is handled by Windows 10’s personal assistant, Cortana, and there are a few things you should do to make your missed calls and text messages appear as notifications on your Window 10 PC. First thing first, you need to be signed in with the same Microsoft account on both your phone and computer.

Second, this feature doesn’t work on Windows Phone 8.1, so you have to use Windows 10 Mobile Preview. We don’t have any info whether this feature will ever come to Windows Phone 8.1. Also, there’s no official announcement that this feature will arrive on other mobile platforms, like iOS and Android, but there are some rumors around the internet.

And since the connection between Cortana and your Microsoft account does the trick, all info about your missed calls and messages will sync between devices and be saved on the Microsoft Cloud. This option should be automatically enabled right after you install Windows 10 November Update, but in case it isn’t, here’s how to make it work:

  1. Open Cortana on your PC, go to Notebook, and then to Settings
  2. Turn on Missed calls and notifications option cortana missed calls

You should do the same thing on your Windows 10 Mobile device, but the process is the same, just open Cortana, go to Notebook>Settings, and turn on Missed calls and notifications option.

Speaking of text messages on Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft recently merged text messaging and Skype Messaging into one app, so you can now read all your messages on Windows 10 Mobile from one place. And November Update did the similar thing with PCs, by bringing the Skype integration to the system.
