Microsoft recently announced that all Android handsets are now able to sync with the Windows 10 Your Phone app, which can now make and receive phone calls directly from the Windows desktop. However, the new feature is slowly rolling out to users.
Sam Medley,

Mac users with an iPhone have long enjoyed the harmonious sync between macOS and iOS. Now Android users will get to enjoy many of those same benefits… provided they have a Windows 10 PC.

Microsoft announced that the Your Phone app in Windows 10 is now able to make and receive calls from any synced Android phone. The feature was previously available to a select few Android handsets, mostly Samsung Galaxy devices. However, the Calls feature in the Your Phone app is now compatible with all Android phones.

While Microsoft announced that Your Phone is compatible with all Android devices, it is slowly rolling out the update. As such, not all users can sync their phones or make phone calls through the app just yet.

It should also be noted that this is just the calling feature. Text messaging and the Phone Screen feature (which allows users to control their phone in Windows 10) are still limited to a select few handsets. Microsoft has yet to announce when these features will be broadly available.

If you’re an Android user with a Windows 10 PC, have you seen the Calls feature appear in the Your Phone app? How is the overall experience? Let us know in the comments.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
