Your Phone

Your Phone is an app developed by Microsoft for Windows 10 to connect Android and iOS devices. It was first shown by Microsoft during Build 2018. It allows to see recent photos taken on an Android Phone directly on a Windows 10 PC/Tablet. It can also be used for sending SMS Messages right from a PC.[1] It comes preinstalled with Windows 10 October 2018 Update and replaces the old Phone Companion. Your Phone app can be used to mirror the screen of an Android Phone, however currently only few phones are supported and the feature is in beta.[2] At Samsung's Galaxy Note10 launch event, Microsoft teased a new Your Phone app feature that might soon allow you to make and receive phone calls.
