Microsoft today released Windows 10 preview build 17728 to the Insiders in the Fast Ring and it comes with highly-anticipated Your Phone app. The Your Phone app was announced earlier this year and it brings your Android phone and Windows 10 PC a bit closer.

With Windows 10 Redstone 5, Microsoft is bringing the first set of features to Your Phone. The feature is now available for Windows Insiders and it works with an Android device only, at least for now. Microsoft says that you can snap a pic on your Android phone and see it on your PC via Your Phone app.

“You can finally stop emailing yourself photos. With Your Phone app, your Android’s most recent photos sync to your PC automatically,” Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar writes in a blog post.

It is worth noting that you must download a Microsoft app on your Android phone to sync photos with your Windows 10. At the moment, Android 7.0 and above are compatible with Your Phone app.

“For iPhone users, Your Phone app helps you to link your phone to your PC. Surf the web on your phone, then send the webpage instantly to your computer to pick up where you left off to continue what you’re doing–read, watch, or browse with all the benefits of a bigger screen. With a linked phone, continuing on your PC is one share away,” the company explains.

    Doesn’t OneDrive do this anyway. I’ll admit it is lethargic at best but after a few days photos have generally synced.
