In addition, the program added the notification feature, which allows you to display messages from a smartphone on a computer screen.

The app itself is “Your phone” can be used on any computer with operating system Windows 10 (Windows build 1803 (RS4) or later). To work with most smartphones running Android version 7.0 and above. However, the extended functionality is, of course, only in test version.

As expected, this feature will appear in the release at least a year. This will allow to connect the Android and PC-Windows 10 in a single ecosystem, as Apple implemented it.
