Public Release for Microsoft Your Phone App Now Available on Android

By Nitish Singh / August 15, 2018

After a month of testing its new "Your Phone" app, Microsoft finally launched the software for all users. Your Phone is a utility that allows Android displays to be mirrored on a Windows 10 device and it also offers the ability to drag and drop files from your phone to your Windows desktop, laptop or tablet wirelessly. The app requires the April build of Windows 10 if you want to install it via the Microsoft Store and become a part of the OS by default with the upcoming Redstone 5 update that is headed to Windows 10 users in the near future.

Apple phones are currently not supported by the new app from Microsoft, and the company announced that they are working on it. However, iPhones will not receive the ability to sync messages, access and manage media libraries or provide notification access due to iOS restrictions.

To use the new Microsoft app, you need to link your Android device to your computer via Windows Settings or through the Your Phone app. Installing the app on Windows prompts you to enter your phone number, and you will receive a text link to download the companion app.

After logging into your Microsoft account on both devices, you will be able to use the new service. Your mobile device needs to have Android 7.0 or later to use the app. Microsoft has also requested users to use the Feedback button in the app to submit feature requests, which may be added depending on the number of users requesting a specific functionality.
