Microsoft’s Your Phone app for Windows 10 is finally getting MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) support with the latest update for Windows Insiders. Android users can already use Your Phone on Windows 10 to sync text messages and recent pictures, but the ability to send photos and GIFs was a much-requested feature.

The latest Your Phone update is currently available for Slow and Release Preview Insiders still on the May 2019 update, as well as Fast Ring Insiders already on the latest 20H1 builds. In addition to MMS and GIF support, the app’s icon has also received a Fluent Design update to make it look like the redesigned Office icons that Microsoft is still rolling out across all platforms.

Three days ago, the Robert Bojorquez, Lead Program Manager at Microsoft also announced that the Your Phone app now supports sync over mobile data. Previously, users needed to have their Android phone connected to WiFi to sync messages, photos, and notifications to a Windows 10 PC. This was another top-requested feature from users, and we’re glad to see the app getting more and more functional in recent months.
