You Will Soon Be Able to Make and Receive Calls on Your Android Phone From Windows 10

Posted on August 7, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 12 Comments

At the Samsung Unpacked event today, Microsoft’s Shilpa Ranganathan was up at the stage to talk about the company’s newest partnership with Samsung.

Ranganathan demoed some of the new features of the Note 10, like the new Link with Windows feature that integrates Microsoft’s Your Phone feature into the device’s Quick Panel, as well as the OneDrive integration for the Gallery app.

But Ranganathan quietly teased another new feature that will be coming to the Your Phone app: the ability to make and receive calls from your Android phone on your Windows 10 device. It’s not clear if the feature will be exclusive to Samsung devices, or if it will be available on other Android devices. Ranganathan didn’t reveal many details about the new feature, or when it will be available, though. So for now, we just have to keep waiting and hope for more details soon.

    Voice calls via Your Phone would be pretty exciting. Even Windows Phone never offered that level of desktop integration.

    The link between Android and Windows is getting better and better, although I still wish for an Android fork made by Microsoft, or a Samsung device that push even harder toward a Microsoft's services integration.

    I do hope it is not exclusive to Samsung phones. Not everyone can afford one of their high priced phones.

    This would be a great addition to the app.

    Wow, what leadership! Been able to do that on my Mac and iPhone for 3-4 years.

    As mentioned in premium comments Mac/iPhone has done this for ages, but also so has Android/Linux via KDE connect. This isn't new or difficult.
