Microsoft updates your phone app in Windows 1
This news comes in a Microsoft blog post about a new Windows Insider building. The feature rolls out gradually to Windows Insiders using the 19H1 preview, which is the May 2019 update, also known as version 1903. It should come for all Windows users in a few weeks when the May 2019 update becomes stable.
When using your phone app to connect an Android phone to your computer – that is, installing an app from Microsoft on your phone – messages appear from your Android phone on your phone PC. You can see all the messages in the Your Phone window, but they will also appear as regular Windows messages and appear in the Action Center.
When you clear a notification – either a single notification or all your messages – it will disappear from all your devices. The status of the message is synchronized between your devices.
These messages can also be customized so you can choose which apps you want to see messages from.
This is not a completely new feature because message mirroring is usually used as part of the Cortana app. But now it comes to your phone app with a better interface.
In addition, Microsoft has also enabled phone mirroring for OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T, Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10, S10 +, Note 8 and Note 9. It already worked on Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 +, S9 and S9 +. But this feature requires a "Windows 10 computer with a Bluetooth radio that supports the external role of low energy." Even if you have a phone that supports it, there is a good chance that you do not have a computer that supports it.
