How to Open Phone Screen in Your Phone app on Windows 10 PC

You can tap into the power of Your Phone app with Link to Windows integration on select Samsung devices to instantly access your Android phone’s mobile apps directly from your Windows 10 PC.

With Your Phone apps, you can instantly access the Android apps installed on your mobile device right on your PC. Using a Wi-Fi connection, Apps allows you to browse, play, order, chat, and more – all while using your PC’s larger screen and keyboard. You can add your Android apps as favorites on your PC, pin them to your Start menu and taskbar, and open them in separate windows to use side-by-side with apps on your PC – helping you stay productive.

Apps replaced the Phone screen option in the left pane of the Your Phone app, but Phone screen is still available. Phone screen will mirror your Android phone screen the same way it did before, but it will be on a separate window from the Your Phone app. Apps provides an easier way to interact with all of the apps installed on your Android device by launching them directly.

The Phone screen feature only works when your Android device and Windows 10 PC can communicate with each other. They will both need to be turned on, linked, and connected to the same network (for example, your home Wi-Fi).

This tutorial will show you how to open your Android phone screen in the Your Phone app on a Windows 10 PC.

How to Turn On or Off Mirror Android Phone Screen in Your Phone app on Windows 10 PC

Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18356.16, Microsoft added a new preview phone screen feature to the Your Phone app in Windows 10. You can now mirror your Android phone’s screen directly on your PC without having to dig for your phone.

The new phone screen feature gives you easy access to your phone apps on your PC. Whether scheduling a ride to the airport or checking your social updates, do it with ease from the comfort of your PC without having to take your phone out of your bag or go back and forth between devices. Go ahead, give your thumbs a break, and get things done faster with your keyboard and mouse.

This feature will gradually roll out to Windows Insiders on 19H1 builds. It may take a few days for this feature to show up inside the Your Phone app (version 1.0.20701.0 and above).

You can use the Your Phone app on any Windows 10 PC running Windows builds 1803 (RS4) or newer and any Android phone running Android version 7.0 or newer. But the new phone screen feature is initially only compatible with a limited set of devices. Surface Go will be the first device in the Surface lineup to preview this feature. Microsoft will continue to expand the list of devices over time for both the PC and phone.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off to display a mirror of your Android phone screen in the Your Phone app for your account in Windows 10.
