The Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Ring who also use Android smartphones can now download the Microsoft’s Your Phone app. Earlier today, Microsoft announced that the Your Phone app is now rolling out to users in Release Preview Ring with Windows 10 April 2018 Update.

For those unfamiliar, Release Preview is the most stable ring of the Windows Insider program and it allows users to get early access to app update. You can switch to Release Preview Ring, install the Your Phone app from the Microsoft Store and opt out of the ring.

Microsoft’s Your Phone is a new app that allows users to transfer data seamlessly between the computer and handset. While there are several third-party apps and services that could create a similar integration, the Your Phone app is somewhat better and reliable. It uses Microsoft Graph technology to securely transfer files from your phones to PC.

“We’re shipping Your Phone app to Insiders in the Release Preview ring, specific to PCs running Windows 10 April 2018 Update (Version 1803, Build 17134),” Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar and Brandon LeBlanc said in a blog post while announcing Windows 10 Build 17746.

The company had already confirmed that it is making improvements to Your Phone app and you’ll be soon able to access the phone’s text messages and notifications on the PC for a seamless experience.
