Microsoft has added a new feature that allows you to access a list of your Android apps that can run in a separate window mirrored from your phone. Microsoft announced in Samsung’s Unpacked event that the Your Phone app will finally allow users to run Android apps within Windows 10 itself.
The app now also allows Windows 10 users to multitask with the Windows apps. Moreover, now you can also pin these Android apps to the Windows 10 taskbar or Start menu. This means the app will allow Windows 10 users to launch apps directly and run them as if they’re regular Windows apps.
The updated app will come with a new page called ‘apps’ and it will show you a list of all the apps that are installed on your phone. Obviously, It would be free to use, and you can easily run apps using their default-designed interface. According to the Tweet, all the Windows 10 users can download the updated Your Phone app but again only selected Android smartphones are supported.
