Microsoft promises side-by-side Android apps streaming on Windows 10

Windows 10 Your Phone streaming

For more than a month, Windows Insiders have exclusive access
to
Windows 10’s new Android app streaming feature.

The feature was originally announced Samsung’s August Unpacked
event and the tech firm stated that this will allow owners of
Galaxy phones to stream multiple apps directly to their Windows
10 PC.

The new update, which is now available for everyone, allows
Samsung owners to link their phones to their Windows 10 device
and access Android apps. There’s a menu within the Your Phone
app on the desktop that allows you to access the list of
installed apps and open app in a separate window.

The goal here is to help you interact with multiple mobile apps
at once and carry your work without picking your Android phone.

Windows 10 Android apps streaming

There are two problems with Microsoft’s approach. The first,
obviously, is that it works only on Samsung phones.

The second and short-term problem is the inability to run more
than one Android apps, but Microsoft says support for multiple
apps is coming soon. This will allow you to run Android apps
side-by-side on your desktop.

Your Phone currently only allows users to run one Android app
on their PC at a time, but according to Microsoft employee, the
company is currently planning
to add support for running multiple apps at once later this
year.

Galaxy phones supported

It’s likely that the feature will initially work only on
Samsung phones.

As we reported last month,
Your Phone app’s streaming feature appears to need special
drivers in the firmware of a phone. If the special driver
that uses Wi-Fi Direct connection and Bluetooth is missing, you
won’t be able to use Windows 10’s app streaming feature.

This may come to other smartphones too if the phone maker is
willing to work with Microsoft and implement appropriate
changes in their firmware. For now, it will remain exclusive to
both flagship and affordable handsets from Samsung.
