What you need to know

  • Microsoft's Your Phone app will soon let you control your smartphone's settings from your PC.
  • You'll be able to control the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb, and other settings through the app.
  • The feature rolls out with v1.21012.195.0 of Your Phone on Windows 10.

Microsoft's Your Phone app allows you to connect your smartphone and your Windows 10 PC in several ways. You can use the app to send text messages from your PC, look at images from your phone on your computer, and keep track of your phone's notifications from your PC. In an upcoming update for Your Phone on Windows 10, you'll be able to control some of your smartphone's settings from your PC.

According to a report by Aggiornamenti Lumia, v1.21012.195.0 of the Your Phone app will add more options for controlling your smartphone. Following the update to that version, you'll be able to change your smartphone's settings for Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb, and some other settings from your PC.

The Your Phone app has steadily gained features since its launch. Generally, the app allows you to keep your smartphone in your pocket or on your desk. With the added option to control smartphone settings from your PC, it should be even easier to keep your phone out of your hand and to get more done from your PC.

The update with v1.21012.195.0 doesn't appear to be rolling out yet, so it might be some time before you see these new features.
