During the current week’s Surface occasion, Microsoft declared the Surface Duo 2, the most recent emphasis of its double screen cell phone. While the actual gadget is pressing some genuinely necessary upgrades – as we noted in our grasp on – Microsoft is likewise attempting to work on the experience for getting to your telephone from your PC. This is done through the Your Phone application, and during the occasion we got a brief look at another UI for the application in Windows 11, which makes it more open.
As of now, the Your Phone application UI for Windows 10 and Windows 11 has a couple of areas as an afterthought menu, including Notifications, Messages, Calls, and Apps (on select Samsung telephones and the Surface Duo as it were). These segments are isolated, so you can just see each of them in turn. That is incompletely going to change now, notwithstanding. Microsoft is supplanting the menu on the left half of the application with a warning feed, so notices are consistently available as you explore the remainder of the application. Actually like previously, you can answer to notices or make a move on them from your PC along these lines.
The various areas have been moved to the highest point of the application window, and they work like they used to. You can get to your telephone’s applications, settle on decisions, and send SMS messages from your PC. You can likewise copy your telephone’s screen to your PC.
That is everything we could truly see of the application during the occasion. There don’t appear to be any major new components here, and Microsoft additionally didn’t say when this new UI will be free for the Your Phone application in Windows 11. Maybe in particular, Microsoft hasn’t declared any designs to bring applications and screen projection to more Android telephones outside of the Surface Duo and Samsung Galaxy telephones. Besides, iPhone clients are correspondingly in a tight spot, since the application actually doesn’t work with iPhones.
In case you’re keen on running Android applications on your PC, you may likewise need to hang tight for Android application backing to come to Windows 11. You’ll have the option to run those applications autonomously from your telephone, however they might be restricted by the absence of Google Mobile Services. Android application backing ought to (ideally) be accessible to Windows Insiders in the coming months.
To attempt the Your Phone application with your Android telephone, you’ll need to download the Your Phone Companion application from the Play Store.
