Microsoft’s Your Phone app can now route calls from your Android phone to your PC

Microsoft announced that the latest preview build 18999 for Insiders (20H1) on Windows 10 adds call support to Your Phone app on Windows 10. You can carry your phone in your pocket while using your PC. If you are not an insider, you have to wait for an attempt. But all you need is an Android phone (with 7 Nougat or later installed) with the Your Phone app downloaded from the Google Play Store.

According to the Microsoft blog, all insider preview builds and calling features are described in detail.

  • Receive incoming calls from your PC.
  • Start a phone call on your PC using the in-app dialer or contact list.
  • Reject incoming calls from PC with custom text. Or send directly to voicemail on your phone.
  • Access your recent call history on your PC. Clicking on a particular call will automatically populate the number within the dialer screen.
  • Switch calls seamlessly between PC and phone.

There are some technical requirements for using this feature. This feature requires Android 7 Nougat (or later), but it also requires a Windows 10 PC with Bluetooth support, 10H1 build, and Windows 10 build 18362.356.

Microsoft is slowly building a cross-functionality with Android phones, but it's getting better over time. Of course, news of Surface Duo phones running on Android has been released, which puts a completely different spin on developments like this. Microsoft is running to add the ability to provide cool features to Android phones. What's even better is that it also offers them all on other compatible phones.

Microsoft says that this feature will be first offered to insiders of 19H2 (or later) builds. If someone can try, I'll keep updating once I know.
