Windows 10 Will Soon Let You Run Android Apps Via Screen Mirroring
Microsoft is getting ready to release the hotly anticipated Android screen mirroring feature it debuted last year.
Microsoft began testing an update for its Your Phone app that will let you see and use apps from your Android phone on a Windows 10 PC or desktop. The feature is available in beta for Windows Insiders running Windows Builds 1803 or newer, as announced by a Microsoft Agent on the company's Community forums.
"You can now mirror your Android phone’s screen directly on your PC without having to dig for your phone," the post reads.

Windows 10 users will be able to pair their phones and mirror content onto a Windows 10 PC when the feature is widely released. A list of apps will appear and you'll be able to click and interact with them without ever having to open your phone. Microsoft showed how you could engage in a Snapchat conversation from a Windows 10 laptop when it first announced the feature at its Surface event last year.
Take note, however, that PCs will need to support Bluetooth with Low Energy Peripheral mode to use the feature since this is how the two devices will interface with each other.
To check if your Windows 10 device supports the low-energy Bluetooth mode, open the device manager by right-clicking the Start menu. From there, select and expand Bluetooth options and press on your laptop's specific Bluetooth driver or adapter. Then double click Properties and find the Details tab. Once you're there, select Bluetooth Radio Supports Low Energy Peripheral Role from the drop-down menu. If the value is True, then your device supports the feature.
Phone screen is currently only compatible with Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus phones running Android 7.0 or newer and Microsoft's Surface Go tablet. Microsoft has promised to expand the list of compatible smartphones and PCs over time.
Microsoft still hasn't announced an official release date for the feature, and it's not clear whether iPhone support is coming in the future (we doubt it).
While the feature will enable screen mirror across all Windows devices, many laptop makers already offer their own solution. For example, Dell's Mobile Connect lets Android and iOS users make calls, send text, get notifications and interact with mobile apps from their Dell laptop. Similarly, Samsung's Flow app lets you view contents from your smartphone on a PC or tablet.
Microsoft's 'Your Phone' App With Android Screen Mirroring Now Available in Beta for Windows 10
Microsoft has rolled out an early preview of the phone screen feature in the Your Phone app. This feature will allow users to mirror their Android phone's screen directly onto a PC. This new feature in Your Phone app was first demoed at the Surface event in October last year, and it's now up for testing in the latest Insider build of Windows 10. There are a lot of limitations as to who can use this feature, set by Microsoft for now, but it should be available to a broader set of audience when it launches commercially.
For the phone screen feature to work on the Your Phone app, the user needs to be on a Windows 10 PC running Windows builds 1803 or newer and should have a select Android phone running Android version 7.0 Nougat or newer. Microsoft notes that the Surface Go will be the first device in the Surface lineup to preview this feature, however it looks to expand the list of supported devices over time.
Furthermore, the new Your Phone app feature only works with select phones running on Android 7 Nougat like Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8+, Samsung Galaxy S9, and Samsung Galaxy S9+ for now. Also, the Windows 10 PC must support Bluetooth with Low Energy Peripheral mode as a mandate for screen mirroring to work. In order to check if your PC supports Bluetooth Low Energy Peripheral mode and activate it, follow the steps on this Microsoft post.
If the user manages to meet all the requirements, the Your Phone app will support app mirroring on Android, giving users access to their texts and photos. To recall, the Your Phone app that was first released for systems running build 1803 Spring Creators Update back in August last year, however, soon after, Microsoft limited access to Windows 10 Insider Preview users. The official launch of Your Phone was announced in October at Microsoft's Surface event in New York, where hardware products including Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, and Surface Headphones were also launched.
