Microsoft is gradually rolling out Android app streaming to all Windows 10 computers. Users with the app Your phone can control their smartphone from a desktop window and even attach mobile apps to their computer’s taskbar or Start menu. Unfortunately, Samsung is still the only manufacturer to support Android-to-Windows app streaming.
Android-to-Windows app streaming was announced at Samsung’s Unpacked event on August 5 and is a major selling point for Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Duo phone. It’s also a major extension of the Your Phone app, which started as a “text from your desktop” client from Microsoft.
App streaming requires a new version of Windows 10, a Samsung device, a shared Wi-Fi connection, and the latest version of Microsoft’s app Your Phone. Playing your phone app takes you through a quick and easy installation process (though you should consult Microsoft’s latest installation guide if you run into any issues). Keep in mind that Microsoft’s app streaming of the app is a server-side operation, so it may take a few days to reach your phone or PC.
In addition, the Your Phone app is still a bit green. You may encounter bugs while using it and you may be frustrated by its limitations. Microsoft says that your phone will eventually support streaming of multiple apps, so you can pull up WhatsApp along with Instagram or your phone’s Gallery.
