The Your Phone app lets you pair your Android or iOS device with your Windows 10 PC. Originally, the application only enabled you to view some of your phone’s content on your desktop. But it’s got more sophisticated to the point of letting you drag and drop files or images between your smartphone and PC.

Now, you can control media playing on your Android or iOS device within the phone-desktop linking app.

Your Phone app gets media control functions

The Windows 10 application has been updated with the ability to control the music or audio apps running on your smartphone. Microsoft announced the general availability of the new feature when it released Windows 10 build 19645 to the Fast ring.

This feature lets you control your music and audio apps from the Your Phone app. Now you can access and control the audio apps playing from your phone directly within the app, without needing to split your attention between devices or breaking your workflow.

So, now you can play, pause, or play next/previous audio file with your eyes focused on your desktop, rather than smartphone.

In addition, the app lets you control audio apps running on your smartphone. Supported applications include YouTube Music, Google Podcast, and Spotify.

While build 19645 only shipped to a group of Windows 10 insiders, the  media control update is available to all users.

However, Microsoft is not pushing the feature via an automatic update. That’s why the company recommends you update to the latest versions of the Your Phone app (for your mobile device) and Your Phone Companion (for your PC).

Also, be sure to update to the latest version of Windows 10 or at least use Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

We created a guide to help you get started on the new media control experience available in the PC-phone linking app app. You may check it out anytime!
