Remote Desktop Preview now supports Continuum on Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft has rolled out an update for Remote Desktop Preview on Windows 10, which adds support for both Windows 10 Mobile and Continuum. Those with supported mobile devices, like the Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL, will now be able to enjoy the same Remote Desktop experience they're used to on the PC on their smartphone.

Since this is a Universal app, Microsoft has made it so the user experience on mobile matches that of Windows 10, enabling you to dive in without having to learn anything new. Both portrait and landscape views are supported on the Windows 10 Mobile version, and as an added bonus, Continuum will allow you to up-scale what's being viewed on your phone on a larger monitor.

Simply connect to a Microsoft Display Dock, add a keyboard and mouse and you're now using Remote Desktop on Windows 10, powered by your smartphone. It's a really neat update and one we're sure those who enjoy using Continuum will appreciate. Other new features and additions were included in this latest update for previewers, with the ability to send keyboard commands and more.
