Microsoft is preparing a major October update to the Windows 10 operating system. In the new build of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17755 for beta testers, the OS has the function of synchronizing SMS-messages with a smartphone. While this function will work only with Android devices.
The function is implemented using the application “Your phone”, which Microsoft introduced in late summer. “Your phone” needs to be installed on a Windows computer, and on an Android smartphone, you need to download the Microsoft Apps application from the Play Store app store. After that, both applications need to be authorized under the same account, and then synchronization of SMS messages between devices will begin.
At the same time, you can not only read SMS messages on your computer, but also send them. Since the innovation is still in beta testing, it does not have several functions. For example, you can not see attachments, and you can not respond directly from a notification in the Windows notification center.
