  • This button has been there for 6 months. The only issue I have had is removing a device redirects u to Microsoft family not the devices page in family. Must have been a/b testing
  • I had it once long ago, but then it disappeared. It was gone for many many months.
  • By the way, if you saw the Bat Signal somewhere over northern NJ, would you show up? Or are you one of these never-cross-the-Hudson types?
  • It doesn't even work with one device.
  • Works for me
  • I never got it working on my Oneplus or Moto.
  • Works fine on my Moto G4 Play and Moto G8 Power. Of course, you don't get screen mirroring.
  • Same. Have a OnePlus and have never gotten it to work.
  • Works great for me, but I have a Samsung. My spouse is not interested in trying it with her Moto.
  • It is very hit-and-miss, I thought I would give it a try since buying online is getting more of a pain in the backside if my phone is not with me, so I thought I would try Your phone for text. I still have no idea why it needs a MS account, since it works via Wi-fi, but I made one of them anyway and set up your phone, it works when it wants to work. When it does work the text I sent does not appear anywhere.
    So i tried it and it failed, so I will uninstall it from my phone and close the MS account down I did not really want anyway
  • Can it do one phone to multiple PCs?
  • yes I use it across 3 laptops.
  • Didn't read the article?
  • Yes I did. How? I had to set it up again on my phone to connect it to a new PC. There was no other to set it all up otherwise.
  • Works fine with my Essential PH1 on Dell Desktop and Surface Pro 4.
  • "You can already connect a phone to multiple PCs." How? I had to set it up again on my phone to connect it to a new PC.
  • All have to do open your phone app on the PC, than give permission from the companion app via a notification.
    Do you want to give give permission to this PC.
