Windows 10 testers can now get Android phone notifications on their PCs

New, 41 comments

Microsoft revealed earlier this year that it was planning to bring Android phone notifications straight to Windows 10 PCs. If you're a Windows 10 tester then you can enable this new feature today. A new update for the Android version of Cortana will allow you to enable individual apps to sync their notifications to a Windows 10 PC.

Missed calls, messages, and other notifications from an Android phone can appear on a PC, and they should arrive within a few seconds of them appearing on a phone. Microsoft is using its cloud services to sync the notifications, and Windows 10 users will even be able to reply to the Android notifications directly from a PC. If you're not a Windows 10 tester then this functionality will arrive with the Anniversary Update this summer.
