Microsoft’s idea of more tight integration of the Windows operating system with Android mobile devices is nothing new. Your Phone app on Windows 10 / 11, for example, has been steadily improving. The latest news is that when a user configures the system for the first time on the device, Windows 11 will provide a more straightforward out-of-the-box (OOBE) experience in the initial boot interface.
As you can see from the image above, the initial configuration interface of the system displays a dedicated interface to guide users to pair Android mobile devices and PCs directly.
The description says pairing can support sending text messages, making phone calls, and other additional features for specific models, and even enabling desktop screen mirroring.
As part of the Windows 11 Device Setup (OOBE) process, you can now link your Android phone to your PC.
You can then instantly access everything on your phone directly on your PC without being distracted by two screens, and you can use mobile apps, send text messages, make calls, and more with keys and mice.
Obviously, Microsoft’s efforts on the Your Phone app are being reported through continuous improvement. In addition, for users of Microsoft’s Surface Duo dual-screen Android smartphone, this also means that they have gained another more convenient posture to use.
Finally, the software giant offers the Android Subsystem (WSA) in the Windows 11 operating system, and it offers a public preview to users in the United States. As for when to introduce more market areas, it is not known at this time.
