The Your Phone app for Windows 10 keeps getting better and better. Microsoft has once again updated the application for Insiders, adding in an exciting new feature this time around.
That of allowing users the ability to run multiple Android apps on their Windows 10 devices.
What this simply means is that you can now run more than one application on your desktop, side by side. Not just Windows software, but Android apps as well for the ultimate in productivity — as long as you have a supported setup.
As in, it is only available on select Samsung phones like the Galaxy Note 20.
Microsoft explains this as:
“A few months ago, we introduced Your Phone – Apps feature allowing you to launch and pin apps on your PC. The ability to launch multiple apps simultaneously is now gradually rolling out to selected Samsung devices (details below) and only to the Windows Insider Community on a PC that is configured to be in the Dev, Beta, or Release Preview Channels. This is an early preview so you may still find a few issues, but we would love to hear your feedback.”
To get started with this powerful new feature, your PC must be running at least Windows 10 May 2020 Update that is also known as version 2004. And it must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Android device.
Oddly enough, Microsoft’s own Android device, the Surface Duo, does not yet support the option of running multiple Android Apps on the desktop.
No specifics yet on when it will go live for more device, but things should soon pick up.
