Microsoft Your Phone app can make phone calls on all Android phones now

Microsoft has been steadily working on the Your Phone app for Windows 10 that brings some Apple-esque integration to your workflow. It syncs up your Android device with your Windows 10 computer, allowing you to see messages and notifications, plus make phone calls right from your computer even if you aren’t directly using your phone.

That calling feature was initially just rolled out to newer Samsung devices, but today they’re putting the feature into general availability.

You’ll still need a semi-recent Android phone for this to work, since the app requires Android 7.0 Nougat or higher. You’ll also need to make sure your Windows 10 install is updated, but after that you should be good to go.

We’re still waiting on the Link Your Phone feature to hit more devices, since that’s the really cool stuff that includes complete phone and app mirroring. It’s still currently available to Samsung smartphones and will probably take a bit more time before it’s functional on less popular devices, but Microsoft will very likely have this figured out in time for their Surface Duo Android phone next year.
