You need a Windows 10 PC for the purpose, a smartphone of version Android 7 Nougat or above and the application from Google Play Store

Microsoft has launched a new calling application: “Your Phone”. It had been running under the Windows Insider program. Now users will be able to call from a Windows computer using this app and also receive calls.

In addition to calling in Microsoft’s Your Phone app, many more features have been provided to help in syncing a Windows computer with a mobile device.

Once the app is installed on your smartphone, you will be able to

  1. look for contacts and call them
  2. send text messages from your PC to your friend’s phone as well
  3. transfer images from a computer to a mobile phone
  4. see mobile notifications on the computer

Through this app, Microsoft is working to better sync mobile devices with the Windows computer. Until now, third-party apps had to be used to sync a Windows computer with mobile phones, which was not secure.

The company was doing beta testing of the ‘Your Phone’ app for some time and select users were using it. Now it is ready for all users.

Windows Central said through an article that this feature was being released for the public and now all Android users would be able to make and receive calls from Windows 10 computers.

You will be able to find other information including the call history of the phone in Microsoft’s ‘Your Phone’ app. To use the Your Phone app, you must have an Android smartphone of Android 7 Nougat or above. You need to download Your Phone app from the Google Play Store.

Android Nougat is the seventh major version and 14th original version of the Android operating system. First released as an alpha test version on 9 2016, it was officially released on 22 August 2016, with Nexus devices being the first to receive the update.

Your PC must have Windows 10 with which you try to sync your Android smartphone. The computer must have Bluetooth support.
