How to View and Reply to Text Messages from Android Phone in Your Phone app on Windows 10 PC

After you link your Android phone to your Windows 10 PC, you can use the Your Phone app on the PC to view and send text messages from your Android phone on your PC.

Your Phone is an app that runs on your PC. It is preinstalled in Windows 10 October 2018 Update (Version 1809) and it’s available to download in Windows 10 April 2018 Update (Version 1803).

To minimize network bandwidth and maximize performance, the Your Phone app only shows text messages that you’ve received or sent within the last 30 days.

The Your Phone app supports messages sent via SMS (Short Message Service). It also supports MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) group messaging, but does not yet support media attachments (such as photos or videos).

The Your Phone app does not support messages sent via RCS (Rich Communication Services). Some mobile operators refer to RCS as “push messages,” “chat features,” “advanced messaging,” or “RCS messages.”

This tutorial will show you how to view and reply to text messages from your Android phone in the Your Phone app on your Windows 10 PC.
