- let you wipe all of the notifications at once or individually.
via Microsoft’s blogThere are chances of this update being available to every user once the May update becomes stable.
When you connect Your phone app to your Android phone with your PC, it will begin installing an application in your Android device so that the notifications from your phone be available on your Desktop.
The notifications will pop up as a normal Window notification in the lower right corner of your Window screen and will be available in the action center also.
Earlier screen mirroring feature used to be a part of Cortana app so this feature is not actually new but has been reintroduced with Your phone app.
With the new update, Microsoft has also allowed phone screen mirroring for devices including, OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T, Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, Note 8, and Note 9. Though this feature needs a “Windows 10 PC with a Bluetooth radio supports the low energy peripheral role.” So if you have a phone that supports it, you also need to have a pc that supports the same.
