As part of today’s massive Windows Insider new build announcement, Microsoft also announced updates to Your Phone, the phone-PC companion app for certain Samsung phones. The update introduces a new “recent apps” section in the Your Phone app, allowing you to “easily access recently used apps from your Android device on your Windows PC.”
To get Your Phone and try out the recent apps section, you’ll need the following:
- Your Phone app version 1.21092.145.0 or higher. Older versions will not show recent apps even if you have a supported device.
- A supported Android device. Recent Apps requires a deeper level of integration with the Android device and the team worked directly with Samsung to light this up. It is available on select Samsung devices that have Link to Windows, with OneUI 3.1.1 or higher and Link to Windows Service 2.3 or higher, such as:
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
- Samsung Galaxy S series
- Samsung Galaxy Note series
- Your Android device and PC need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network for apps to launch on your PC
