Tech giant Microsoft announced Your Phone app back in 2018 offering the ability to mirror Android apps on Windows 10 PC. This means that the user could see what’s going on their Android device and could interact with it through the input devices like keyboard, mouse etc.
Now it seems that the time has come for the app to actually see the light of the day as the company begins testing the screen mirroring feature which would be currently only available through limited preview and on limited set of Samsung devices like Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 while Microsoft Surface Go would bet the first device to support this functionality.
The feature utilizes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi features of the phone to bring it life through Windows 10 so that the user doesn’t have to break their workflow working on Windows 10 PC and could instead use apps like Whatsapp and others right from their Windows PC. For now, the PC needs to be running on Windows 10 version 1803 and Android version supported is Android 7.0 or above.

The feature is announced to be in preview stage though we’re yet to experience it working on any device though it’s for sure that the feature is right around the corner before the Silicon Valley tech giant could toggle the server side switch ON.
