Microsoft Now Lets You Link Your Android Phone to Windows 10

In the latest Insider preview of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Microsoft is allowing users to link their Android phone to their PC. By doing so, you’ll be able to send websites to your desktop to read on your bigger screen. Let me break it down.

Let’s say you want the full Matridox experience. You don’t wanna read it on your tiny, wimpy Android phone. All you do is hit the Share button from within your favorite browser (I recommend Google Chrome, personally), select “Continue on PC”, and choose whether you wanna view our site now or later. If you choose now, your default browser on your PC will open our site. It’s “magical,” according to Microsoft. If you choose later, our website link will show up in Action Center which you can check out at a later time.

Sure, this feature may seem a bit small, but it does make using your phone and PC to get things done a little easier. It’s also a more versatile version of Apple’s Continuity available on iOS and macOS that basically does the same thing, minus the Share menu. It’s unclear if/when the feature will come to iOS, but at least for now, those of you with Android phones and Windows 10 PCs on the Fast Insider ring can be somewhat more productive.
