Windows 10 Gets Android Notification
Microsoft has released a Windows Insider Preview build for Windows 10 which allows users to display their Android smartphoneâ€™s notifications on their PCs.
Users who download Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18885 will receive a number of new features for the Your Phone app, including support for notifications and Samsungâ€™s Galaxy S10 smartphones.
â€œStop reaching for your phone to check your notifications,â€ Microsoft said in the release notes for its latest build. â€œBoost your focus and productivity by seeing your phoneâ€™s notifications on your PC.â€
With this preview, you can:
- See incoming phone notifications in real-time
- View all of your phone notifications in one place
- Customize which notifications you want to receive
- Clear notifications individually or all at once
Users can control which Android applications they receive notifications from on their PC, and dismissing a notification on one device will also cause it to disappear from the other.
The latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build will roll out to Insiders over the next few days, and the notifications feature for the Your Phone app support Android devices running version 7.0 or later with at least 1GB of RAM.
