Your Phone app - Phone Screen feature



Microsoft has now officially started enabling the Your Phone ‘Apps’ feature for everyone with a supported device.

Previously available to Insiders, Microsoft Your Phone Apps feature allows Windows 10 users to instantly access the Android apps installed on a mobile device right on their PC.

This feature uses a Wi-Fi connection to browse, play, order, chat, and more – all while using your PC’s larger screen and keyboard.

How do I interact with apps?

You can use your PC’s mouse, trackpad, keyboard, pen or touch-enabled screen to open, type, scroll, and interact with apps. A few tips for using your mouse and keyboard: 

  • Single click  will behave the same as any single touch/tap interaction 
  • Right click  anywhere on your phone screen to navigate to the previous page 
  • Click and hold will behave the same as a tap/hold interaction 
  • Click and hold and drag to select content  
  • Mouse scroll to move between pages vertically or horizontally 

Some games and apps might not work with a mouse or keyboard. You’ll need to use a touch-enabled PC to interact with them.

How do I pin Android apps into Windows?

You can pin your Android apps to the Windows Start menu, taskbar, or add it to Your Phone app favorites.  

To pin an app on your PC: 

  1. Open the Your Phone app 
  2. Go to Apps  
  3. Right click on the app icon you want to pin or add to your favorites 

Are the apps from my Android device now installed on my PC?

No, apps you open on your PC will be running from your Android device. Your Android device needs to be on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network in order for this to work. The Your Phone app is connecting and mirroring apps to your PC from your Android phone.  

Can I access Android apps without linking my device?

No, you need to connect your Android device to your PC via the Your Phone app in order to use this experience. Learn more about how to set up Apps here

Can I open multiple apps at the same time?

No, you can only open one Android app at a time. The Your Phone app is mirroring your Android device’s screen and the opened app in it. If you open a new app, the one you already have open will be replaced with the new app.
