According to a recent finding, Microsoft is working on a new
feature for Windows 10 that would let you transfer phone calls
to PC. Evidence of the feature on Windows 10 was found in
latest 19H1 builds, which suggests deep integration with the
Microsoft might be working on a system app that is internally
dubbed as “Windows.CallingShellApp” and it’s supposed to
transfer calls from smartphones to PCs. The feature would
reportedly work on all Windows 10 devices and it won’t be
limited to future hardware (such as Surface Andromeda).
As you can see in the screenshot shared by tipset ALumia, there
are some interesting strings that appear to suggest Microsoft
is working on a dual-screen device. For example, there is
mention of “Fold the device over to return to the call” and as
well as call commands which are valid for all Windows 10
It is also worth noting that the aforementioned feature is
basically going to mirror the phone call window onto your PC
screen but you’ll native commands to control the call. For
example, you’ll be able to dismiss the call, put it on hang,
access dial pad directly from your connected PC.
It’s important to understand this is just a rumour and
nothing is confirmed at the moment but such a feature is
certainly possible given that Microsoft is committed to phone
and PC integration.
Groundwork for Andromeda?
This could be a groundwork for the rumoured Microsoft Andromeda
mobile device but the feature will also arrive on traditional
computers. Of course, this is purely speculation but it
certainly makes sense if we consider the old rumours.
