Microsoft Phone Link replaces the Your Phone Companion app and allows you to filter your notifications, receive calls, and use your mobile apps on your PC. With updated design for Windows 11, Phone Link is reaching customers around the world.

The Phone Link experience starts on your PC with Windows 10 or Windows 11 and the Phone Link app. From your PC, you can connect to select Android and Samsung devices with these two apps:

  • Link to Windows (LTW) app for most Android devices.
  • Link to Windows (LTW) app preinstalled on selected Samsung phones.
  • You’ll see these names combined as Phone Link – Link to Windows in the Google Play Store and in the Galaxy Store. In the Microsoft Store, you’ll see Phone Link. This link between your device and PC gives you instant access to everything you love. Read and reply to text messages with ease, view recent photos from your Android device, use your favorite mobile apps, make and receive calls, and manage your Android device’s notifications right on your PC.
  • Phone Link requires the following to work:
    • A PC running Windows 10 April 2018 Update or later. If you’re currently running the April 2018 Update, you will need to install the Phone Link app from the Microsoft Store. Any Windows version after the April 2018 Update will have the app preinstalled.
    • An Android device running Android 7.0 (Nougat) or above.

You’ll find Phone Link preinstalled if you have the Windows 10 October 2018 Update or later. When you open the app you’ll be guided through a few extra steps you’ll need to take to finish setting things up.
