Android Users can now make Calls from their Computer
If you are an Android user, then you will be glad to know that you can now make calls right from your PC. The Your Phone App is now not just available just for Samsung Galaxy phones or even just Windows Insiders anymore. The app syncs your phone with your PC, and it is available for anyone who is using Windows 10. All Android phones that are above 7.0 can now use it as well and this is fantastic news to say the least.
Microsoft have apparently been working on a MacOS-IOS experience and they have also been trying to bring the app to a whole new audience. One of the main features of the app is that you can easily make and even receive Android calls. You can do it right from your own PC and you can also check your messages. If you want to view the recent photos on your phone, then this is also a possibility. Of course, there have been phone and computer connections before. Take the online casino industry and the website NetBet for example- they give you the chance to login on a phone or laptop, accessing the same data. For the last couple of months, it would appear that Microsoft have been testing out the calls function and they decided to kick off the feature with the Galaxy Note. They have also been gradually rolling out into other Samsung phones. In October, Microsoft also chose to release the Link your Phone feature. This gives people the chance to send and receive messages while also helping them to mirror their phone with their PC.
Focusing their Efforts on Android
Even though the actual Your Phone app does support the iPhone, it would appear that Microsoft are doing everything they can to focus their efforts on Android. General availability is going to be very important for Android users who have a Windows 10 PC but it would also appear that they are launching a new Android phone as well. This is known as being the Surface Duo. Microsoft are going to take the entire 2020 year so that they can smooth out any bugs with the app and so that they can also really amp up the Call and Link your Phone features. The Your Phone application really does look to be catching up with those who use Windows 10. When the app launched, they only had 10 million downloads on Google Play, but the figure has now climbed up to 50 million. The app has a score of 4.3 out of 5 but some do believe that Google have a lot of work that they need to do before they can capitalise on what they have going on. That being said, it’s great to see that so much work is being done to try and bridge the gap between PCs and phones. Who knows what the future is going to hold for Microsoft? But right now, things are moving in the right direction.
