Windows 10 Mobile April 2018 Update

Microsoft revealed a lot of exciting news at Build 2018. One of the main points of interest at this year’s Build was the Microsoft 365 platform which brings together Windows 10, Office 365, and Enterprise Mobility and Security (EMS) as a whole solution for a secure and intelligent organization. Microsoft introduced various features and updates across more devices and platforms in order to enhance the connection between PCs and phones.

One of them involves a brand new app created by the tech giant for Windows 10 that provides a window from users’ PCs to their smartphones.

Your Phone app is compatible with Android and iOS smartphones

The app will enable a seamless transition of content including photos, messages, and notifications across shared devices. Users will be able to read and send text messages via their smartphones as well as move photos from their mobile devices to their PCs and see all the phone notifications on the computers.

The main benefit triggered by using the app will be the fact that you won’t have to pick up your phone anymore while you’re on the PC to access information and check out notifications that pop up on the mobile device while you’re busy. You will be able to see all of these on your PC via Your Phone app without having to switch between the devices.

Your Phone app begins rolling out to the Windows Insiders by the end of this week.

Microsoft is looking for more ways to connect Windows 10 and mobile devices

The tech giant might have renounced at working on its Windows 10 Mobile platform, but Microsft’s efforts are not buried. The company has been searching various ways to bring Windows 10 to mobile devices in order to still offer continuity to the services.
