Windows/Android communication got to a new level
Microsoft adds a feature to the Your Phone app, which forwards incoming notifications to the computer, Windows Insider reports on Twitter.
The function is rolled out among app users. With the Windows 10 app Your Phone, notifications from apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter arrive on the computer. These messages are forwarded from the Android phone.
Notifications that are processed on the computer are immediately checked on the linked smartphone. The app also allows users to respond to messages and view recent photos on a linked Android phone.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates announced last month to consider it his “biggest mistake ever” that Microsoft could not become what Android is today. According to Gates, there was only room for one mobile operating system in addition to iOS from Apple. “We’ve lost about 400 billion dollars.”
