The software giant, Microsoft has given up with the business of Windows Phone is getting closer to death. But the Redmond-based company, still working in the business through software products. One of them with the release of a new application nicknamed “Your Phone” for Windows 10.
The feature was released on the Microsoft Build 2018 agenda which began on May 7, 2018 in Seattle, Washington. “Your Phone” is designed to reflect data from mobile phones directly on the desktop. That is, data such as SMS, photos, and notifications from mobile phones can be accessed directly through the Windows 10 desktop.
This concept was previously introduced by Dell in early 2018, which displays the phone notification to the PC screen. So no need to worry if there is no phone while working in front of the laptop, or back and forth staring at the PC screen and smartphone when the notification appears.
Without a physical phone, Windows users can still reply to messages, share photos from the phone, and view and see notifications that appear on the phone. This feature will land on iOS and Android . However, reported from The Verge , Wednesday (9/5/2018), this application will work better in the Android ecosystem.
This Microsoft Suggestion Suppose we are working on Microsoft Word documents on the desktop, then the work will also appear in the Timeline feature on Android. Then the user can continue his work on the phone, or vice versa.
The “Your Phone” feature will also share data browsing on iOS devices, but the requirement is that users must install Microsoft Edge browser on Windows desktop or iPhone or iPad. Microsoft will begin testing the “Your Phone” app to a number of Windows users this week.
While waiting for this feature is really ready to use in Windows 10, Microsoft is currently conducting a massive update test. The update was codenamed “Redstone 5” which is likely to be released this year.
