The Your Phone app by Microsoft is something that every person would have thought of: answering phone calls through PC. Yes, the new app has features that allow the users to take calls from their PC itself. The app has been introduced in the latest Windows 10 version and can be found on the compatible devices.
All one has to do is connect the Android device with the Your Phone app and then you are ready to take calls from PC itself. Not only that, one can even make calls from the PC through the contacts available or from the dial pad. Though the calls would be made from the Android phone technically, it would be controlled from the Windows PC. Even the user would be able to talk and listen from the PC’s mic and speakers.
Technically, the app would function more like a contacts app of the Android app, allowing the user to decline calls, forward the call to voicemail, can send a text and many more, all from a PC. Though the users would be required to add contacts in the Your People app to make sure that the calls can be made and received. According to sources, the feature has been added as a part of the Windows 10 Insider build 18999, a part of 20H1 and can be found in the devices which have the 19H2 builds of the recent version.
Microsoft has recently updated Windows 10 and had introduced two versions for the update process. The 19H2 is the one that would be having this feature. One can clearly expect that the new update would be coming very soon as the new features and specifications have already reached.
Earlier, the call feature supported only a few devices like Samsung Galaxy, OnePlus models, and Pixel. But with the new update, the app would be able to support all the Android devices having Android 7.0 or above. Not only that, even the PCs need to be having Bluetooth equipment to make the calls. There has been news regarding that the PCs having Windows 10 build 18362.356 or above would be able to have the new update of the Your Call feature.
Though there is a slight flaw in the app. The user would have to connect their Android devices every time the call has ended. There are some other issues as well. How will Your Calls work when there are multiple PCs in a place? That is not known yet. But leaving that aside, the feature would be made available soon and before making it available, Microsoft might be making some other changes and updates in order to improve other features. Whatever it might be, the new Your Call feature is something that would make the iOS users jealous. The new feature does not support iOS devices, thus not allowing them the benefit of taking calls from a PC. Never mind, Apple would be coming with some brilliant ideas for this. For now, enjoy Android users.
