Windows 10 uses Wi-Fi to mirror screen of Android phones on PC – Apps & Software

THE Microsoft has been testing to mirror the cell phone screen Android at the Windows 10 a few months ago, but the feature required the PC to have a very specific Bluetooth feature; therefore, the company now does the mirroring through Wi-Fi. This is available for Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy S10, Galaxy Fold and middlemen like the Galaxy A30s.

In March, Windows 10 gained the feature of screen mirroring within the Insider program, through the Your Phone application. The list of compatible smartphones was not exactly large, and there was an additional requirement: your computer needed to support Bluetooth with a low-power peripheral function – something that was missing even on some Microsoft Surface models.

Now, mirroring requires only a PC connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the cell phone. The computer must be running Windows 10 October 2018 Update or later.

The list of compatible phones includes only these Samsung smartphones:

  • Galaxy Fold
  • Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+
  • Galaxy S10, S10 + and S10e
  • Galaxy A30s, A50s and A90

It is necessary to use the “Link to Windows” feature that was released on these devices with a software update; it is an updated app through the Samsung Galaxy Store. Microsoft is expected to expand support over time.

If you have a compatible phone, you can access the screen through the Your Phone application in Windows 10. You can click on the interface to emulate a ringtone. By right clicking, you are returned to the previous screen; click and hold to open context menus or select text. It is also possible to interact with touch; learn more details in the Microsoft FAQ.

Even though your phone cannot mirror the screen on Windows, you can still connect it to the Your Phone app. You can receive notifications, answer calls on your PC, access your photos and send text messages.
