Your Phone has seen an increase in both features and priority by Microsoft recently. Earlier this week, Windows Insiders received support for in-line responses for Your Phone. Earlier this month, Your Phone gained the ability to manage Android notifications. Microsoft is also looking to hire more than 20 engineers to the Your Phone team.
Your Phone allows you to sync text messages, photos, and notifications from your phone to your Windows 10 PC.
Portable (and affordable) power accessories we love
Each and every one of these charging gadgets will keep your favorite gear and gadgets going for longer, and none of them costs more than $30.
VisionTek 8,000 mAh micro-USB power bank ($13 at Dell)
This compact dual-output powerbank can speedily recharge any and all your devices, thanks to a two-amp "fast charge feature," using its micro-USB out port. Its simple design includes an LED indicator, and it costs about as much as a single ticket to the movies.
Panasonic eneloop AA batteries (From $13 at Dell)
Panasonic's rechargeable batteries are among the best available, and just a couple of them will keep your favorite remote, mice or other peripherals powered up when you need them. They're also eco. And the company's affordable charger fits and charges both AA and AAA batteries at the same time.
Belkin Qi Wireless Charging Pad ($30 at Dell)
This unobtrusive Qi wireless charging pad looks good (and kind of like a UFO …) and easily charges all your Qi-compatible device up to 5W. Its LED indicator lights up when you're charging. And it costs just $30.

It also extended support for the phones on its mirroring feature. I have a galaxy A6 and it now is mirroring and it works great!
If they continue down this road, i'll happily abandon my Pixel 3 for a Note 10 or Galaxy 11.
