Microsoft last week pushed out a new update for its Your Phone
app for users who have updated to the company’s latest version
Windows 10 April 2018 Update. The Your Phone app lets users
to access their photos and media gallery on their PCs.
The app received couple of updates after it was made available
to the Insiders. With the update earlier in the week, the Your
Phone app was made available for Production Ring users who have
installed Microsoft’s Windows 10 version 1803 on their PCs.
Yesterday the Redmond Giant pulled the update from its servers
and the latest update to the Your Phone app is no longer
available and users who could not download the app will no
longer have access to the application.
Users who have already installed the app would be able to use
the application without any issues. According to The Head of
Program Management at Microsoft, Vishnu Nath the update was
removed due to “quality and disclosure issues”.
The Your Phone app is expected to arrive for users on version
1803 once the company fixes the issues and we expect them to do
it in the coming weeks. The Your Phone app was released for
Insiders enrolled in the Fast and Skip Ahead ring for testing
before pushing it to Production Ring.
The app is still in development since it misses full
integration to your smartphone with key features like send
and receive text messages not available currently. The app
currently works very well with Android users but provides
limited experience to iOS users.
For those unfamiliar with Your Phone app, you can access photos
stored in your phone from your PC. If you take a photo on your
Android phone it will instantly show up in the Your Phone app
on your PC but the access is limited to 25 most recent photos.
You will also be able to drag photo from Your Phone app to your
PC or desktop and also it gives you the option to edit the
photo as well.
