Your Phone now lets everyone (with a Samsung phone) run Android apps on their PC

17 September 2020
Previously, this was being tested by folks in the Windows Insider program, this update will enable it for everyone.

Sort by:

I can't use it at work, where I have domain login. To use it you must login to Microsoft Account on Windows side. There is no option to se it on different windows account than Microsoft Account. Or maybe they changed it?

Ehm... look a like Huawei Screen Collaboration? Who copy cat who?

Great thing for samsung phones and microsoft tablets, not so much for samsung tablets though, even more if you want a jack... for those that want surface but also android tablet its like 50%-100% discount on surface(android tablets 200-1000 euros) if you want new stuff.
Though you may save more if the support comes to all devices, not for now however.

For example, I pair my Pixel phone with my Chromebook which allows me to read/send txt messages anywhere within my house from the Chromebook. Plus, typing from the computer is much faster & you don't to unlock your phone etc ...

I have a pixel 3 which seems like quite a good phone to me, but because it's not a Samsung, it can't have the cool features.
Why is this limited to Samsung?
We have google phones, the people that make Android, but it can't work there. Makes me think that maybe Microsoft has shares in Samsung and is trying to promote their phones above others.

Maybe except battery life but I haven't had any problems with the either. But yeah, I hate it we don't get the Snapdragon versions, they are superior specs-wise but you don't really notice it.

Peopole complain its a gimmick, not usable, doesn't ad nothing to the user experience....
Fellas it's a feature free of charge, FREE, somebody is spending time and money to give one more FREE feature and you are not satisfied with that? Maybe they should charge a fee for every new feature .
What a spoiled community, maybe you kids need to go back 15 years and look how was Technologie developing than. Maybe than you can start to appreciate the choices you have today.

great features but pathetic and stupid that this is just for Samsung phones...

Whan can we do. Peoples 😄

They can keep their crappy Exynos ...

It's funny how most of the comments aren't related to the article but to Samsung's CPU. I think it's a great idea to run Android apps on Windows in an easy way, especially some games, and sync everything between the devices, i'm sure soon enough its compatibility and features will expand. One more thing: "peoples" is not a word, people!

It could prove useful for some apps. For example, Instagram doesn't work in Windows. Or at least you can't upload any photos, just view the ones you already have.
I do not know of any other apps, that work better on phones/tablets and do not work the same on PC's/laptops directly from browser.
