Windows 10 PCs will be able to launch Android apps

The main changes that are available now in the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build (version 20185) are upgrades to how apps are displayed in the Your Phone interface.

The new feature basically improves multitasking on Windows PCs and bridges the gap between Android and Windows to some extent.

Second, and as was the case past year, Galaxy Note owners will get early access to new Your Phone features in Windows 10, including the Phone screen feature that Microsoft says "allows you to access your Android phone's apps, right from your PC while using your keyboard and mouse, or touch screen".

Just the new Galaxy Note20 will have the option to do this from the start, yet Microsoft says it will keep working with Samsung to empower the usefulness on more gadgets. You can access social media or other apps this way, and it might be useful considering many services don't have apps for Windows. They will also be able to pin such apps to the Start Menu or the taskbar at the bottom of your screen. The app will automatically update your favorites list based on your usage and you can search through the list as well. One of the major highlights of the presentation was the ability to use Microsoft's Your Phone app to enjoy Android apps on your PC.

The list of compatible phones at this time includes the Samsung Galaxy Note10, Samsung Galaxy Note10+, Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite, Samsung Galaxy Fold, Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20+, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung Galaxy A30s, Samsung Galaxy A31, Samsung Galaxy A40, Samsung Galaxy A50, Samsung Galaxy A50s and the Samsung Galaxy A70, to name a few.

What to expect from Apple iPhone 12 in September Event 2020
Rumor has it we may also see a refreshed version of the iPad Air, which Apple re-introduced after years of dormancy in 2019. Prosser had previously said that new ‌iPad‌ and ‌Apple Watch‌ models were planned to launch during the week of September 7.

These apps will run in their own dedicated window outside of the Your Phone app, so overall, it'll be pretty much an Android app running on Windows 10, all powered by a mobile device connected to your computer. The Galaxy Check out 3 will use Outlook as its native email app, serving to you hold tabs on perform (and past) from your wrist.

All said and done, this is perhaps the biggest update we will get for the phone mirroring experience on Windows 10 and Android phones.

Samsung Galaxy Note20 users can now access a single mobile app on their PC [2], with the power and convenience of running multiple apps side by side available later this year. The smartphone maker has expanded its Microsoft partnership with functions that must make it significantly less complicated to operate with information on your telephone. Microsoft has a list of all supported Android devices, but it's literally only Samsung handsets right now. As of now, only one app can run at once on Windows 10.

Beginning Sept. 15, you'll be able to experience the best of Xbox Game Pass by downloading the app from the Samsung Galaxy Store, giving you the freedom to access expansion packs, downloadable content and more. Some apps might block the ability to cast to other screens and you might see a black screen instead.
