Microsoft has begun testing dual SIM support in the Windows 10 Your Phone application, which will allow Android users with dual SIM devices to send and receive text messages from both SIMs on a Windows 10 PC. This new feature is now being implemented for Windows Windows Insiders, the Your Phone team announced on Twitter.
#WindowsInsiders We have started the launch of a new function for #YourPhone – Dual SIM support for messaging! So, if you have a phone with several SIM cards, you can now send and receive messages from both from your PC.

Your phone can now synchronize text messages, recent photos, as well as Android phone notifications, and is definitely an essential application for users of Android. The SMS sync feature is especially important as Microsoft is about to announce the similar SMS Connect feature on Skype for Android.
Dual SIM devices are very popular in certain regions of the world, and it's good to see that your phone will finally support them. However, the application may still be unreliable for users who juggle between different PCs every day, and it is not uncommon to find synchronization problems in that use. We hope this is something that the team is working on, but in general, Your phone is one of the few applications that Android users should try in Windows 10.
