Microsoft has been working for mobile phones to integrate with the Windows 10 experience primarily through the Your Phone application, allowing users to manage texts, images and notifications from their mobile devices directly to their desktop computers. For owners of Surface devices that also had a compatible Galaxy device, users could also take advantage of wireless screen sharing, allowing them to use their phones directly on their PCs.
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will be incorporated with according to Zac Bowden of Windows Central, it will work on any Windows 10 device running the April 2019 update or later. And to top it all, screen mirroring will also work without the use of Bluetooth, which requires that the computer and Note 10 be connected to the same Wi-Fi networks.

Bowden describes the overall experience of his phone as "Better than ever on other phones", with notifications and messages that arrive almost instantly when paired your Note 10 with Surface Studio. Microsoft has worked closely with Samsung to make the device work as much as possible with Windows 10.
While wireless screen mirroring through your phone can be useful on its own, some users may also benefit more from the new DeX integration with Windows and Mac Using only a USB Type-C connector, a user can access the full DeX experience directly on their desktops, and can even drag and drop files between the two.
Microsoft also plans to integrate Note 10 cell calls with the Your Phone app by the end of the year, as announced at the Samsung unpacked media event announcing Note 10. Are you thinking of picking up Note 10? Let us know in the comments area below.
