Since Microsoft surrendered to Windows Phone, we've seen how the company has embraced Android as a mobile operating system that it can grow, based on services and applications. One of the most sensitive is Your phone, an application that comes pre-installed in Windows 10 and which allows the activities of the smartphone from the computer.
In general, we can see the text messages and photos on our mobile phone after we have configured it, but in some terminals we can even control the screen.
Until now this feature was limited to two or three mobile phones, but the latest update of the application brings compatibility to many others.
Samsung and OnePlus are selected
There are currently only two brands working with Microsoft to have compatibility between their phones and Windows 10. These are Samsung and OnePlus. The latter has two models, while Korean has more, but all high-end. This is an updated list:
- Samsung Galaxy S8
- Samsung Galaxy S8 +
- Samsung Galaxy S9
- Samsung Galaxy S9 +
- Samsung Galaxy S10
- Samsung Galaxy S10 +
- Samsung Galaxy S10e
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8
- Samsung Galaxy Note 9
- OnePlus 6
- OnePlus 6T
Probably, when OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro are introduced here, but at the moment we have only eleven compatible phones.
In addition, we will need our computer to be compatible with Bluetooth LE, a variant of this little energy-consuming protocol. To know whether this is the case, we must follow these steps:
- Click the right button above the Windows icon in the taskbar.
- We select equipment for management.
- Click the Device Manager.
- We expanded the Bluetooth option.
- We select the driver on the computer.
- We right-click and select Properties.
- Let's go to the Details tab.
- We require "Bluetooth radio supports low energy peripheral role" and select it.
- If Putin is put that our computer is compatible.
If you can not find this option, you can search for LE in the device manager, in the Bluetooth tree. You need to have it whenever your laptop has Bluetooth 4.0 or higher.
The app can be downloaded free of charge from the Play Store and although we can not use the option to send the screen, because our mobile phone is another, if we are interested in other features available for multiple phones.
