Your Phone Gets Pen Support in Windows 10

Microsoft has been frequently updating the Your Phone app with new features. The app has quickly grown to be a really powerful companion app for your phone on Windows 10 if you have an Android device, and Microsoft is adding yet another new feature to make the app even more useful.

As you may know, Your Phone lets you mirror your phone’s screen on your Windows 10 device. The mirroring feature lets you use your Windows 10 device’s keyboard, mouse, and touch display to interact with your phone.

And now, Your Phone is getting support for pens. That means you will now be able to interact with your phone screen using accessories like the Surface Pen. So if you need to draw something on your phone, for example, you can simply do so from your Windows 10 device’s screen using the stylus you already have.

It’s not clear if the pen support works well with things like pen pressure, or if there’s a major input delay. I am assuming there will be a small amount of delay, but that’s obviously not anything surprising considering the screen is being mirrored.
