Microsoft to launch Your Phone app for Android and iOS that syncs with Windows 10
Microsoft recently confirmed that its next mobile app, Your Phone will allow smartphones to sync with Windows 10. The application will be available on Android and iOS devices soon, but they will offer different features.

For example, Android users will be able to see their photos captured with the phone on the PC without having to send them through email. Moreover, pictures on the phone can be added to presentations on the PC via drag and drop.

If you own a PC running Windows 10, you'll notice a pin on the desktop that will take you directly to the Your Phone app, which will allow you to access your Android phone's content. In addition, once you open the Your Phone app on the PC, you'll receive an app from Microsoft which you must download to your Android smartphone.

The requirement for the Your Phone mobile app is Android 7.0 and above. However, if you're located in China, Your Phone service will not be enabled along with the rest of the world.

As far as iOS users go, Your Phone app will help them link their phone to their PCs. Basically, they will be able to surface the Internet on their iPhones and then send web pages to their computers to pick up where they left off, and that's pretty much it.

It is yet unclear how iOS users will be able to get the Your Phone app on their devices, but Microsoft will probably launch it in the App Store in the not so distant future.
