The continuity feature in Apple devices was one of the biggest breakthroughs in recent past. Workaholics, shoppers, fitness junkies and others couldn’t resist but drool over the fact that when switching devices they had seamless continuity. Microsoft has just woken up to this news and it is introducing “Your Phone” app which will allow users to connect their Android and iOS devices to Windows PCs.
The app will help users connect their mobile devices wirelessly to PCs. All notifications including calls, messages, and photo gallery will be accessible. Microsoft is emphasizing on the experience being one of the smoothest users would have experience. Dell and HP already had their own apps that could help you navigate through your phone while you were on the computer.
Users will be able to act on the notifications as well, which will help bridge the gap. Phones can be kept on charge while you deal with all the notifications and emails through PC. Microsoft is also claiming that users will be able to drag and drop files from the mobiles to PCs. If this does happen, this will be one of the best features ever. We are guessing special permissions will be required by Android and iOS when this is being executed.
People who are enrolled in Microsoft’s insider program will be able to experience the update now. However, the app will later be rolled out for the masses. It is not Google or Apple but Microsoft that has taken a step to integrate devices with Windows PCs.
One of the biggest things to note it that Windows mobile will not be able to use this app despite the fact that Microsoft is developing the app.
