This can increase everyone’s productivity as the assciation of the two devices will give users the capability to access their recent photos, text messages, notifications and mobile apps right on their PC; therefore, people are not compelled to shift to the other device, rather they can continue their work uninterrupted.
An innovative feature of the Samsung and Microsoft devices is that users will be able to make and receive calls from the Android device to the Windows 10 device.
“Accept the call, reply with a text, or send the caller to voicemail right from your PC. All of these features and experiences will continue to deliver meaningful innovation to help you stay focused and more productive on your Windows PC”, Ranganathan further added.
Unfortunately, there were no other information about the feature, such as when it will be available, but we can only wait patiently and hope that we can soon do that.
