Those of you that are familiar with the Your Phone app know how handy it can be. Once you download the PC app via the Microsoft Store and the Android app via Google Store, you can then connect the two devices.

It is the perfect example of synchronicity between your Windows 10 PC and your Android phone since you can even use the app to reply to messages using your phone’s contact list.your phone sync

Now it seems that developers are taking the synchronicity idea a step further, as the Your Phone app is getting a really great update.

You can sync the wallpapers between your PC and phone

In an official Twitter post from one of the Microsoft developers, it was revealed that the next big update will include a feature that will allow the Your Phone app’s navigation bar to display your smartphone’s wallpaper

Because #yourphone is, well, *your* phone, we wanted to make it feel as such on your PC. Rolling out now to #windowsinsiders (at 50%) you can enjoy your phone wallpaper being applied with acrylic transparency to the nav bar + larger icon. PS: Calls is now fully rolled out at 100%

The main argument to this latest feature is to make the entire experience of using either your phone or your PC to feel the same.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a little while longer for the live release, but if you are part of the Windows Insider program, you can already test it out. However, even those that are part of the program don’t have it at full functionality yet.

This isn’t the only multimedia-related update that Your Phone received recently, but it sure does manage to catch everyone’s attention.

On silver lining to the entire waiting part is that if you were waiting for the Your Phone Call feature to finally be released, then you should know that it has officially hit live.

No official word is out yet regarding when the wallpaper sync feature will hit live. However, if it is already available for those in the Windows Insider program, then it shouldn’t be too far away.
