As hinted earlier, though, you’ll be able to simply use this with any device. In addition to utilizing the latest Your Phone software in your Windows 10 system, you’ll want a phone with the most recent Link to Windows integration — and for now, which means a Samsung phone running Android 9.0 (Pie) or later. The computer and phone should be on the same WiFi network, so this won’t be a choice for checking the device you forgot at home.
Even so, this can be a huge step up from phone screen mirroring. You don’t need to deal with every little thing a single window, or wade through your phone’s OS just to launch a favorite app. It’s not the seamless union of desktop and mobile that Microsoft envisioned with Continuum, however, it’s significantly closer.
