You can now stay connected by simply answering (or not) your phone calls on your PC.
Windows 10 cumulative update KB4517389 brings a handful of general security updates for Windows Cryptography, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Shell, Windows Server, Windows Kernel, Windows Authentication, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.
To make all this work, you'll probably need Microsoft's Your Phone Companion app from the Play Store on the phone.
Support for this Windows 10 software will end next month, November 12, and that means those using it will no longer get security updates or new features. The app can also transfer calls from the user's PC to their phone and vice versa. It's part of the latest Windows Insider build detailed on Windows Blogs, so will be coming to consumers in the future - possibly early next year.
With new cumulative updates routinely introducing new issues in Windows 10, it has become hard to diagnose what exactly is causing these issue. If a user doesn't want to test Windows 10 2020 immediately and wants to stick to the November 2019 update then he/she have to go "Update and Security" from "Settings" and then to "Windows Insider" to ensure that he/she is in the Release Preview ring.
Your Phone does require you to pair your phone to your PC, and Microsoft is warning that you may need to pair your phone to your PC again once the Calls-equipped Your Phone app is rolled out.
The Calls feature comes bundled with the Windows 10 20H1 build 18999 that was released on Tuesday. Other than that, you will also be able to view your call history on your computer screen with the feature. That's why the Redmond giant is exploring other ways to get smartphone users to try its apps. The feature has some bugs as of right now, but Microsoft should fix them soon.
