Windows Insiders can now make and receive Android calls on their PCs

A few months ago during Samsung’s Unpacked event, Microsoft
and Samsung announced a partnership of sorts where it would see
Samsung install Microsoft’s Your Phone app on their Galaxy Note
10 devices. This basically mirrors Android text messages,
notifications, and your smartphone’s entire screen on your

The good news is that if you don’t own an Android device,
you’ll be pleased to learn that Your Phone is now available for
Windows Insiders where it is currently being tested out. All you
need is an Android smartphone (doesn’t necessarily have to be by
Samsung) running Android 7.0 Nougat or higher, and a Windows 10 PC
with Bluetooth support.

You will also need to be part of Microsoft’s Windows 10
Insider program to take it for a test drive, but it will eventually
be available for all Windows 10 users. Given that this is currently
a beta of sorts, don’t expect to run perfectly as there will
probably be a couple of bugs here and there, but it should still be
good enough for you to make and receive Android calls from your
Windows 10 PC.

While Microsoft might have lost the smartphone battle with its
Windows Mobile platform, it seems that the company is finding ways
to continue being relevant in the mobile scene with features like
these. The company also
recently announced its Surface Duo smartphone
, making it the
first Microsoft Surface branded smartphone.
