The Your Phone app from Microsoft now does full Android phone notification mirroring, the company announced yesterday. With a Windows machine and the app installed on it and your phone, your worlds have never been more connected. Well, unless you used one of the number of already-available apps that have done this for years, but hey, let’s not take away from today’s news.
The Your Phone app allows for photos, texts, and (now) notifications to be available on your computer. It’s been around for a while doing the photos and texting part, but this notification stuff takes it to a new level of fun.
To get started, you’ll need to install Your Phone everywhere and we have links below to help you do that. Once done, you will login with your matching Windows credentials within the Your Phone app on your Android phone. After completing that task and then opening Your Phone on your Windows computer to make sure syncing is happening, you should be good.
I’ve been trying to get it to work for two days now, just so you are aware, and had no luck. I still have no notification mirroring, but it’s supposedly rolling out to everyone over the next few days. Try to be more patient than I am.
Notifications have arrived! With the Your Phone app, you can now receive and manage your Android phone’s notifications on your PC. Get Your Phone app from the Microsoft Store here: https://t.co/E56Z8eVdIR pic.twitter.com/ovlKi1QOJy
