Microsoft's new "Link To Windows" feature that's currently exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 may be coming to other Galaxy handsets soon. XDA recently spotted a video showcasing an upcoming OS update for the Samsung Galaxy S10 series, which appears to show Link To Windows as a feature that's now baked into the OS, starting with the OneUI 2.0 update.
This is a big deal, because it means more users will be able to experience the improved Your Phone integration between PC and Galaxy phones without the need to buy a new Galaxy Note 10. Your Phone integration on the Galaxy Note 10 is much improved over other phones that have the Your Phone app installed manually by the user.
For example, now that Your Phone is integrated with the OS on Galaxy phones, it can maintain a much more reliable connection between the phone and PC, and also has additional functionality such as being able to activate screen mirroring on any Windows 10 PC without the use of Bluetooth, and soon, take cellular calls directly from the PC itself.
Microsoft has also hinted that Link To Windows will be coming to other Galaxy handsets in the near future, so it's likely that we'll be seeing this come to the Galaxy S10 series. We're not sure if it'll be coming to other older Galaxy phones like the S9 or Note 9, but you never know. What are your thoughts on Link To Windows? Let us know in the comments.
Biggest and best
The best of Samsung in a single phone.
Samsung improved on the Note 9 in every way … except for removing the headphone jack. But the big display, top-end specs, wide-angle camera, and huge battery could make up for it.
