Thanks to the new screen mirroring feature, Android users will be able to use their devices on the Microsoft system.
What do you think if we able to use Android apps on Windows 10? Even if it seems an unbelievable phrase, this magic is going to really happen, thanks to the new experimental update of Your phone app that will allow you to mirror Android devices on the screen of your Windows PC.
Microsoft has been working on this feature since last May, but recently it has decided to let its users try it. Starting this week, the new beta update for the Your phone will be available for Windows Insiders users.
Operation should be fairly simple: by connecting your Android smartphone to the PC, a list of installed apps can be viewed on the computer screen. Clicking on one of the apps it is possible to use it remotely. So all the operation takes place on the smartphone by utilizing the power and data within it.
As expected, there are many limitations at the moment. Mirroring will be available only for PCs with version 1803 and Bluetooth Low Energy mode connectivity, but above all, it will only be possible with very few Android smartphones: currently only the Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8 + and Galaxy S9 / S9 +.
In the coming months, the features of mirroring Android devices will be further extended and there will be many new devices supported. As said, for now, the feature integrated into the app Your phone is still in the experimental phase. So it will take some more time before it can be released for all Windows users.
