If you use device ad-blocker on Android, please whitelist the app. If it does not work, the Your Phone app is still in beta.


Your Phone app now works with PCs on the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. While it's still in beta, you still won't be able to just stumble upon the app in the Microsoft Store, however. Instead, you need to navigate to the app's store listing on the web and open it in the Microsoft Store app from there.

To recap, the Your Phone app is fairly limited in its functionality at the moment. You can currently only use it to view photos you've taken on your Android phone, but Microsoft plans to make its feature set more robust in the future, with the ability to handle notifications and messaging. The company will also make some features available for iPhone users, but they'll be more limited in what they can do.
