Windows 10 users who run your phone can now use Android apps right on their PC’s desktop as previously promised – at least anyone with supported Samsung devices – and can run multiple mobile apps promised for the future.
Back in late August, Microsoft announced it was starting to roll out this really nifty feature and made it clear which Samsung phones support it. It has now been announced on Twitter that the full rollout has taken place.
# Your phone apps are provided for everyone with supported devices (https://t.co/2p00jSOkwn)! Have you tried it Let us know which apps you have added to your favorites or pinned. Note: The ability to run multiple apps at the same time will be available later this year. https://t.co/9ePh17es3TS September 15, 2020
As Analy Otero Diaz, your phone’s Principal Program Manager lead at Microsoft, revealed, the feature has been confirmed to be available to everyone – and Microsoft said elsewhere that it should be available on all supported Samsung devices by now (although it may still the case) a few remaining users who will get it later today).
Diaz also makes it clear that the ability to run multiple apps at the same time will come in before the end of the year. This is another piece of good news for Samsung users.
Your Samsung phone?
There have certainly been some complaints on the Samsung site about these and other exclusive features, and in fact suggestions to rename the app “Your Samsung Phone” are floating around in the Twitter thread above.
When asked explicitly when devices other than Samsung smartphones might be able to run Android apps, Your Phone’s Twitter account replied, “We’re always looking for new ideas and ways to help our customers, but we don’t have anything beyond that to share at this time about additional models. “
So we suspect that we only have to keep our fingers crossed for those who do not own a supported Samsung smartphone.
