You can find Microsoft’s explanation of Your Phone app below:

“In today’s world, we are constantly splitting our time between our phones and our computers. With the Your Phone app built into Windows 10, I can stay in the flow and distraction-free. Today I’m working on a proposal for my landscaping business, I have the perfect photo I took in an office the other day on my Android phone. Instead of emailing myself the photo from my phone to my computer, I have instant access to exactly what I need all from my desktop. My most recent 25 photos appear directly in your phone app.

I can easily drag and drop these photos directly into my presentation in the messages window. I can find a text message from my business partner he sent me an updated title for my slide which I can quickly just copy and paste directly into my presentation distraction free. With the Your Phone app, I have instant access to my phone’s photos and texts right on my computer,” Microsoft explains.
