Microsoft looks all set to launch its first Android phone in the form of the Surface Duo, with the device now expected to make its way out before the new Samsung Galaxy Fold 2.
Well before, actually.
And that’s because we just got a hint that an official announcement may be imminent, as the software titan has started updating apps to support the device. We recently got a look at how stock apps will run on this new handset, while Microsoft also enabled emulation for it in Edge DevTools.
The Your Phone app on Windows 10 is one such application that has also recently received a refresh.
This intelligence comes via Zac Bowden, who had this screenshot to share:
The app in question allows users running Android phones to directly connect their mobile devices with Windows 10 and access content on their handsets right from their desktop — content like photos, videos, messages, and more.
Your Phone also enables screen mirroring on certain devices, and even pushes notifications to PC desktops for even more control.
And supporting the Surface Duo right out the gates makes sense for Microsoft, as the company will be able to confirm integration with Windows 10 when it officially announces the handset in the coming weeks.
Still no confirmation from Redmond on all these recent rumors and developments regarding the uniquely impressive Surface Duo.
But we are close, that much is certain.
