Although initially teased about a month ago, Windows 10’s Your Phone calling support is now available in a beta test
The new feature has made it to a beta test stage and is only available for Fast ring testers that adds the ability to take and start calls from your PC.
Being qualified for the test is, however, not enough to make use of the new feature. Microsoft informed that users are required to have a handset running at least Android 7.0 Nougat or later (it doesn’t have to be from Samsung), I order to use the Your Phone Android, as well as own a PC that have Bluetooth support.
Beyond the requirements, you can initiate a call through your contacts or an in-app dialer. If you’d rather not accept an incoming call, you can respond with a text or send the caller straight to voicemail.
That been said, it is important to note that the software is still pretty much in it early stage, so you do have to be prepared for potential glitches when using the pre-release software.
Also, Microsoft has warned that older versions of some anti-cheat game software can produce crashes on this Windows build, for example. Hence, it is important to avoid the test if you absolutely depend on a reliable PC. If that’s no obstacle, though, you no longer need third-party tools (or an all-Apple setup) to juggle phone calls while you work.
