Window 10 Now Lets You Mirror Your Android Phone’s Screen

Posted on March 12, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 11 Comments

Microsoft is releasing a new build of Windows 10 19H1 to Insiders in the Fast Ring today. The company is shipping build 18356 to Insiders, and it comes with some minor bug fixes and improvements.

But more importantly, the company is announcing a major update to the Your Phone app. As expected, Android users will be able to mirror their phone’s screen on their Windows 10 devices. You will be able to interact with your phone from your PC through the Your Phone app as well.

There are some limitations, though.

The feature is only going to be available for Surface Go users for the time being. The feature actually requires Bluetooth with Low Energy Peripheral mode on a PC for it to work, and Microsoft is only starting with the Surface Go to test the feature with Insiders. Furthermore, you will also need to have the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+/S9/S9+ devices to be able to use the feature.

The new feature is available with version 1.0.20701.0 or newer of the Your Phone app. You can check out the full set of requirements and known issues for the feature here.
