Seamlessly transfer content between your devices

Applies to: Your Phone appWindows 10

Let emailing yourself photos and files be a thing of the past - now you can just copy and paste or drag and drop content between your Android device and your PC.  

Cross-device copy and paste (for Surface Duo and select Samsung devices)

You can copy and paste content using the same shortcuts you normally use on your Android device and PC.

Before using cross-device copy and paste for the first time, you'll need to make sure the feature is turned on. Open the Your Phone app on your PC, go to Settings > Cross-device copy and paste, and make sure the toggle is On for Allow this app to access and transfer content I copy and paste between my phone and PC.


File drag-and-drop (for select Samsung devices)

Whether you're transferring content from your Android device to PC, or from your PC to your Android device, you'll first need to open the Your Phone app on your PC, go to Apps and select Open phone screen

If you drag and drop the same file again, a duplicate copy will be transferred to your device.

If you have an app open that supports receiving files, the app will prompt you where to drop the file(s), and where they will be stored.
