Your Phone’s App Feature Comes to More Samsung Phones

Windows 10 Your Phone’s App feature is now available on more Samsung smartphones, Microsoft says.

“We are excited to announce that the Apps feature is now rolled out to everyone with supported devices,” the Your Phone Twitter account revealed, noting that the feature may take up to 48 hours to show up. “It allows you to instantly access your Android phone’s mobile apps directly from your Windows 10 PC.”

I’ve written about this Your Phone feature a few times in the past—check out Not the Android Apps Solution We Were Looking For … Yet (Updated) and Tip: Streamline Your Phone’s App Integration Functionality, if you haven’t, since both are a bit more relevant now. But I’ve also been told that some of the issues I experienced previously, like the app hang issue, have been fixed.

You can see the complete list of supported handsets on the Microsoft Support website. Not sure when non-Samsung phones will be supported, but it appears that Apps support requires Link to Windows, which is limited to Samsung devices and, go figure, the Surface Duo. Which still doesn’t support this feature.
