After abandoning its attempts at creating its mobile platform, Microsoft switched to integrating Windows better with Android and iOS. Not all phones or mobile platforms are created equal, of course. Microsoft has struck a sweet effect on Samsung for even deeper integration that’s exclusive to a get number of Galaxy phones. one among those features includes the power to run an Android app from the phone in its window. This feature may soon be expanding to other phones or a minimum of other Samsung phones.
In addition to a poor choice in naming, Windows’ Your Phone features a confusing number of features that depend upon what phone you’ve got. the foremost basic is Link to Windows, which allows you to seamlessly transfer files between an Android phone and a Windows device. On the opposite hand, the Phone Screen mirrors the whole phone’s screen on the desktop, allowing you to interact with it while keeping your phone away.
And then there are Apps, which allow you to run those Android apps in their windows. Just like the other three features, however, these are mostly exclusive to Samsung’s phones. Newer premium flagships even get extra perks, just like the ability to run multiple apps directly.
@ALumia_italia now reveals that the list of supported phones for Your Phone’s “Apps” feature might be expanding. A screenshot reveals a Galaxy A52 has access to an inventory of Apps, ready for launching any time. The Galaxy A52 supports Phone Screen, also shown within the screenshot, but not Apps.

Just like the Your Phone itself, there’s still some confusion over what this suggests. Microsoft might simply be expanding the compatibility list to more Galaxy phones, or Microsoft could finally bring the feature to phones outside of Samsung’s line. The latter, however, requires that Microsoft open up Your Phone itself to other manufacturers’ devices, and one can only hope, which will be the case soon.
