Microsoft app mirroring announced today. It will allow you to use any android app of your choice on Windows 10.
Microsoft today announced a new feature for Windows 10 that will allow Android phone users to view and use all apps on their device from a Windows desktop. The feature, which Microsoft refers to as a mirrored application and appears in Windows as an app called Your phone, seems to work best with Android for now. Although Microsoft has announced the possibility of transferring Web pages from an iPhone to a Windows 10 desktop, you can resume your activities on your mobile.
Microsoft App Mirroring To Use Any Android on Windows 10
Anyway, the Your phone app appears as an important step to help connect Windows 10 and the mobile ecosystem after the demise of Windows Phone. The news was announced this afternoon at the company’s Surface event in New York.
We did not attend a full live demonstration, but we also viewed a user exchanging Snapchat messages with a friend on a Surface device using the application mirroring feature.
Microsoft says on Twitter that this feature will be available now with the new Windows 10 update. It starts with mirroring Android text and photo store apps and iPhone webpage uploads, with fuller support for Android apps at a later, unannounced date. It is unclear at this time whether iPhone users will benefit from additional features for the Your Phone app in the future.
