A new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build can link PCs to more Samsung phones
Microsoft has released a new Insider Preview Build for Windows 10, which includes some interesting new features such as a new form of PIN sign-in that applies to Safe Mode in this OS. However, the most important implication of this new version may be that Link to Windows is finally coming to more Samsung Galaxy flagships.
The two OEMs in question have been touting this feature as a potential valuable augmentation to both One UI and Windows 10. It enables native screen monitoring on PCs, to the extent that a user can view and control their Android apps on their desktop, manage notifications and check their remaining battery life.
Link to Windows is rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e, S10+, S10 5G and the Galaxy Fold under Build 18995. However, Microsoft has noted that users in a limited pool of markets will see it first. Otherwise, the new Windows 10 Insider's Preview includes the ability to set up a PIN in Windows Hello while booting into Safe Mode, removes a persistent "fix account" notification present in the previous build and improves the reliability of Snips.
