Microsoft’s ‘Your Phone’ app for Android can route photos, incoming notifications, and text messages to your Windows 10 PC. In some of its most recent updates, “Your Phone” has added support for Android phone calls and more. Its latest feature update added something even more useful. The ability to make and receive calls on your PC without reaching for your phone.
“Your Phone” app on Windows 10 added the ability to push Android phone calls over to the PC. This functionality first arrived on select Samsung smartphones around the time of the Galaxy Note 10 launch, but this update brings that to more Android smartphones as MSPowerUser highlighted. The feature was previously available to users in the preview program but is now available to everyone.
There are a few requirements to note, before you dive into the steps below.
You’ll need a PC (any kind, desktop or laptop, x64 or ARM-based) running Windows 10 version 1803 or higher and any phone running Android version 7.0 or higher.
Download ‘Your PhoneApp’ On Your Phone And PC
To get your Android phone and PC talking to each other, you’ll need the app installed on both devices.
Download it for your phone from the Google Play Store, Find the Your Phone app for your PC from the Microsoft Store. (It may already be installed on your machine, so search your list of apps first.) Ensure that you’re signed in with a Microsoft account on your PC. (You can sign in using the “Account” option in the Settings app.) Otherwise, you won’t be able to proceed with the setup.
Once the app is installed on your phone, open it and sign in with your Microsoft account. Note that you’ll need to agree to give it permission to access your contacts, phone call log, media, and text messages, and to continuously run it in the background.
Link Your Phone And PC
After signing up on both devices, they are ready to talk to each other. Ensure that your phone and PC are on the same Wi-Fi network, then boot the Your Phone app on your PC. If you see a dialog box that asks you to select between Android and iOS. It means that you haven’t signed in with the same account on mobile and PC.
Once your phone and PC establish a link, you’ll get a persistent notification on your mobile, which will first ask you to verify that you’ll allow the connection of devices to occur. Hit “Allow”. At this point, your phone should show up in the Your Phone app on PC. It will include a dialer icon labeled “Calls” at the bottom of the list beneath your phone’s name and image. This is where you’ll go to place calls. But first, you’ll need to manually connect your phone via Bluetooth to your PC. The Your Phone app does have a streamlined method for getting dialer access, but it didn’t work in my testing. However, manually pairing the devices worked every time across multiple phones.
To connect your phone, enable pairing mode in your Android phone by pulling down the notification shade on your home screen. Then long-press on the Bluetooth icon to open settings. From there, enable Bluetooth if it’s off and tap “Pair new device” or whatever similar option your phone lists. Now do the same on your PC. Tap the Windows key and type “Bluetooth” to pull up the “Bluetooth & other devices” settings. Once you’re there, tap “Add Bluetooth or another device,” and in the box that opens up, tap “Bluetooth.”
Now Your PC and phone should display the same PIN. If they do, tap “Connect” on both sources to authenticate the connection. Lastly, open the dialer section in the Your Phone app on your PC, and follow the instructions. It will send another notification to your phone that needs approval.
You’ll get yet another notification when you request access to the call log. If you approve of both of those, you should see your recent calls populate on the dialer screen. This is a good sign that it’s working. Finally! You’re all set up to a place and receive calls with the Your Phone app on Windows 10. Just make sure that your headset or the speakers on your PC are correctly configured to work with calls, and you should be good to go.
