Microsoft’s Your Phone app is getting a new look for Windows 11

Your Phone app for Windows 11

Windows 11 is coming to supported PCs on October 5. And as part
of that redesign, Microsoft is launching new inbox apps
experiences for Windows 11. Microsoft has already confirmed
that it’s
working on a new Snipping Tool,
Photos app, Paint, and Clock app with Spotify integration
for the operating system.

The Microsoft Your Phone app included with Windows 11 is
getting its own redesign too, according to teasers shared
during the Surface event.

Your Phone app, which helps link your Android and desktop
together, is getting a new design with a focus on the
notification center built into the app. As you can see in the
below mockup shared during the Surface event, Your Phone app’s
redesign will help you focus on what’s happening on your
Android phone without having to constantly pick it up.

As part of the revamp, the notification center is moving to the
left pane. If you’re not used to receiving notifications
on your PC, you can completely mute notifications from any app
installed on your phone. To do this, click on the mute button
to turn off notifications for that app. In future, Your Phone
app will automatically ignore all notifications for that app.

Of course, if you have received an important notification, you
can click on the pin icon to pin the alert to the top of the
notifications center.

Your Phone app new design

As you can see in the above screenshot, Your Phone app’s
navigation bar is now located at the top of the app window,
allowing users to access the messages, photos, apps, and calls
pages.

These options would help you read and reply to text messages,
view and manage photos on your phone and edit them using Paint
or other programs. You can also make phone calls and even use
Android apps on your PC with Surface Duo and Galaxy phones.

The above screenshot also suggests that Microsoft is planning
to use WinUI 2.6 controls for Your Phone app buttons like “Open
phone screen” and search box.

Some of the UI changes in the Your Phone app will mirror the
overall look of the upcoming Windows 11 upgrade.

It’s not yet clear if there’ll be any new features for the Your
Phone app and when this update will begin rolling out to users.
