Microsoft has been improving its Your Phone companion app heavily in the past months. The company first tested screen mirroring between Android and Windows 10 back in March 2019. Later last year, Microsoft added the ability to view Android phone notifications on a Windows 10 PC in real-time. Now its time for the next step - Microsoft is rolling out the Apps feature, and it will be available for supported smartphones in the next 48 hours.The Apps feature lets you instantly access the Android apps installed on your mobile device right on your PC. You can then pin them to the Start Menu, add them as favorites, and launch them alongside native Windows 10 apps. Using a Wi-Fi connection, Apps allows you to browse, play, order, chat, and more all while using your PCs larger screen and keyboard, reads the description on Microsofts official blog.
We are excited to announce that the Apps feature is now rolled out to everyone with supported devices (It may take up to 48hrs. to show up).
