In its new Insider Preview Build for Windows 10, Microsoft is working on a feature as part of its "Your Phone" software that would display notifications received on Android smartphones on PC screens.
Launched in 2018, "Your Phone" is an application for Windows 10 that allows users to view recent photos taken on an Android phone directly on a Windows 10 PC and send SMS messages from a computer.
"If you allow applications to display alerts on PCs, you can find about an important message or a status update without accessing your phone," Engadget reported Sunday.
The new preview version allows viewers to see incoming phone notifications in real time, customize notifications and delete notifications individually or all at once.
"Increase your focus and productivity when viewing notifications from your phone on your PC You have control and management of the applications you want to receive notifications from. Discard a notification on one device and disappear Other", wrote the company in a blog post.
Users testing the feature need devices running Android 7.0 Nougat with at least 1GB of RAM.
"It can not respond to notifications (at least not yet), but this could be particularly vital for Snapchat and other applications that do not really have a presence on the desktop," Engadget added.
The function is being tested as part of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18885 (20H1).
