Microsoft changes the name of Your Phone to Phone Link and announces a partnership with Honor



Microsoft changes the name of Your Phone to Phone Link and announces a partnership with Honor


Microsoft has offered an official link between Android phones and Windows 10 for several years, and now the service has been updated as desktop devices move to Windows 11.

The Your Phone app now has a new name, Phone Link, and brings a completely new interface that shows notifications in advance. Microsoft also announced that the service will be available in China, following a partnership with Honor that will bring support for select devices from the now-independent smartphone brand.

Windows 11 now makes it easy to connect smartphones by scanning a QR code, which automatically starts downloading the pairing app on the phone; until now you had to download it manually through the Microsoft store. The app itself also got a new name: it’s now Link to Windows, instead of Your Phone Companion.

Microsoft’s new operating system brought several design improvements and Phone Link did the same. There are more controls for the color palette, and the entire app looks and feels more Windows 11-esque.

Phone Link has always offered basic connectivity between Android and Windows, unless the phone is a Samsung or Surface Duo for obvious reasons. The partnership with Honor will facilitate the release of phone and PC navigation apps for the Honor Magic V Foldable, Magic4, Magic4 Pro, Magic4 Ultimate and its predecessors Magic3, Magic3 Pro, Magic3 Pro+.
