With the latest update from Microsoft Your Phone, Samsung smartphone users can launch multiple Android apps on their PCs at the same time. The feature will gradually be introduced to select Samsung devices as an early preview. The Your Phone app was recently released and it allows users to run Android apps from their phones on their PCs. The feature is introduced to select Samsung devices with Link to Windows integration. The update with the new multi-app function requires a Windows 10 update from May 10, 2020 or higher.
To use the multi-app feature in the Your Phone app on PCs, users must have their phones and PCs connected to the same WiFi network as announced from Microsoft. Microsoft’s Your Phone app on your PC should be version 1.20102.132.0 or higher. The Your Phone Companion App Version 1.20102.133.0 or higher should be on the connected Samsung devices. Users must also have a link to Windows Service Version 2.1.05.2 or higher.
The suitable Samsung devices that support this feature when running Android 10 and have the Link to Windows integration are Samsung Galaxy Note20 5G, Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G. It can also be used by Samsung devices that are enrolled in the Samsung OneUI 3.0 Beta program, running Android 11 and have the Link to Windows integration, including the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G, Samsung Galaxy S20 + 5G, and Samsung S20 Ultra 5G. It is available on PC for users of the Windows Insider Community who are in the Beta, Developer or Release Preview channels.
Since this is an early version, Microsoft has determined that if some apps block broadcasting to another screen, you might get a blank screen. Also, some apps may not respond to interactions with a mouse or keyboard, requiring users to use a touch-enabled PC. Apps installed under Work Profile or Secondary Profiles are not displayed in your phone’s app list and must be opened using the phone’s screen function.
