How seamlessly do Apple users brag about themselves? iPhone, iPad And Mac All work together. And for the longest time they had the right to brag. But Microsoft phone Windows 10 apps ($158 on Amazon) We’re catching up quickly, and in a sense, overtaking Apple.

Google tried to close the gap with Messages for Web. This allows Android owners to send and receive text messages from any computer. However, the service will stop there.

To view notifications, make phone calls, and access camera rolls, you need to use an app from Microsoft’s Your Phone. Below, we’ll set it up and explain what you can do in each tab of the app. If you are using a new Samsung Galaxy smartphone such as Note 20 UltraYou can also run the Android app on your computer.

Overall, it’s pretty nice, and what I’ve been using for the past week. One thing is obvious after I use it. Google’s messaging options are excellent, but none of the whole package Microsoft has built into Windows 10.


Your phone works with Android smartphones running Android 7 and above.

Continue that text conversation
