Use your mobile apps right on your PC

Apps now lets you view and interact with your Android apps right on your PC. Look over a take-out menu at the same time you're texting with someone about dinner plans, and do it on a large screen and with your keyboard and mouse available. 

You can add your Android apps as favorites on your PC, pin them to your Start menu and taskbar, and open them in separate windows to use side-by-side with apps on your PC. Learn more about using your Android apps on your PC 

Let emailing yourself be a thing of the past. Just drag and drop.

You can now transfer files or images between your Android device and PC by dragging them from one device to the other. Start by opening phone screen in the Phone Link , then just drag your desired files between your devices. There are a few exceptions, so learn more about file drag and drop here 

File drag-and-drop is available for select Samsung and OPPO devices with Phone screen eligibility. Learn more about setting up and using phone screen here 

Copy here, paste there

You don't have to email that vacation picture to yourself to transfer it between devices. Just copy from your Android device and paste on your PC (or vice versa). Use your normal shortcut keys: just select some text or a picture, copy it, switch devices, and paste. 

To turn on this feature, open the Phone Link  and go to Settings > Cross-device copy and paste. Make sure the toggle is On for Allow this app to access and transfer content I copy and paste between my phone and PC

This feature works on the Surface Duo and select Samsung and OPPO devices. If you don't have a Samsung device that supports this, you can still share images from your phone to your PC by using the Photos tab in the Phone Link . Learn more

To do this, open the Phone Link , go to Settings > Features, and under Photos, turn on the toggle for Allow this app to show photos from my phone.
