Windows 10 build 18999 doesn't just introduce changes to the Your Phone app though, it also makes a few tweaks to how users can move and resize a Cortana window. The Calls feature within Your Phone is available to all Android phones with Android 7.0 (Nougat) or higher, and on PCs that are equipped with Bluetooth. You can even initiate calls from your PC using either the in-app dialer (number pad) or your exported contacts list.
Once the Windows 10 November 2019 update is finalized, Microsoft will gradually begin to shift its testing efforts to the Windows 10 20H1-2020 operating system.
We've actually been using the Your Phone app since August and honestly it's great. The banner and action center also have new images to make things more comprehensive, which includes changes to the way notifications are displayed. Among many new features, the latest update has brought in the long-awaited support for voice calls via Your Phone app. "As a result, we strongly recommend that you update your devices to the latest version of Windows 10 to have access to future critical security fixes", Microsoft's John Wilcox explains.
Microsoft has released a Windows 10 update that comes with the ability to answer phone calls to your Android phone on your PC. Additionally, the Redmond-based tech giant warns that in some instances, the Calls feature may necessitate the user to pair the Android phone with PC again.
After Windows 10 version 1909 installs, we recommend removing the device from the program.
Support for this Windows 10 software will end next month, November 12, and that means those using it will no longer get security updates or new features.
Initially, I believed that the Your Phone app is part of Microsoft's effort to get in a stronghold in the smartphone market after it lost on the hardware side.
Forbes stated that the update is quite confusing since Microsoft did not clear the patch, to see if the design of the update was a fix or an OS bump, without the usual security fixes.
