Note: We’ve changed the name of the Your Phone app to Microsoft Phone Link. In addition, the Your Phone Companion app for Android is now called Link to Windows. For more information, see Introducing Microsoft Phone Link and Link to Windows.


While setting up the Phone Link app, you'll be prompted to enable access to your Android device's messages, but if you choose not to do so at that point, you can always turn it on later in the Phone Link app settings. 

To do this, open the Phone Link appgo to Settings > Features > Messages and turn on the toggles for:

  • Allow this app to show text messages from my phone

  • Allow this app to send MMS attachments from my phone

  • Allow this app to receive MMS attachments from my phone

  • Automatically download MMS attachments from my phone

You can also manage your notifications and alerts for messages by turning on the other toggles in the list:

  • Show notification banners

  • Badge on taskbar

If you encounter issues with messages, our troubleshooting tips may help. 

When pairing your iPhone® with your Windows PC, you’ll be prompted to enable access to your messages.

To do this manually, go to Settings in your iPhone® and find Bluetooth. Then, find your PC name and tap the (i) icon. It’s there you’ll find the option to Show Notifications and Sync Contacts.
