In Windows 10, you can now send and receive SMS via Android

Written by Hassan Abbas

Users of Windows 10 no longer need to get up because of the computer and go look for a smartphone if you need to send an SMS message. In the latest insider assembly of Windows 10 developers have updated a new utility called Your Phone, designed to create a single working environment between mobile devices and PCs. The updated application has learned to synchronize SMS messages between the computer and the smartphone on Android – users can write on their mobile device using a SIM card directly from their PC on Windows 10.

Your Phone appeared in the operating system on August 1, 2018, but then its functionality was rather limited: the application allowed only to exchange photos between devices using drag-and-drop. The emergence of this feature and the synchronization of SMS-messages was announced by Microsoft during the conference Build 2018, so these innovations did not become unexpected. In the future, the utility will be able to display notifications from smartphones on the PC. It is expected that over time Your Phone will learn how to work with devices running iOS.

It allows you to use a single clipboard between the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, make calls and respond to them via a SIM card on your smartphone (like send/receive SMS messages), continue reading the page open in the browser on another device.
