This could roll out to other phones and iOS devices if the OEMs collaborate with Microsoft as Samsung did. This feature requires the OEMs to mend their firmware to include connecting to Windows 10 machines via Wi-Fi Direct and Bluetooth and transfer communication data. Until recently, users can only see the notifications in their systems.
Ability to use Apps feature in Your Phone means you can see notifications from all of your apps, and even pin them to taskbar just as system apps. This makes you rely less on phone and work more on your system, besides checking your important notifications without much distraction. Here’s the complete list of Samsung phones supported by Your Phone for Apps feature.
