Microsoft Testing Android Screen Mirroring For Windows 10

Microsoft Testing Android Screen Mirroring For Windows 10


Did you ever think it was possible for Android apps to appear on your Windows 10 PC? Microsoft is going to make this happen with its Your Phone app. The company demonstrated this app in October last year. It basically allows an Android phone’s screen to be mirrored to a Windows 10 PC. Microsoft has now started testing this functionality for PCs.

The latest updates for the Your Phone app allows Android users to mirror their phone’s screen directly to a PC. It’s making the “phone screen” feature available to Windows Insiders this week. Those who want to try it out will require the latest test builds of Windows 10 and the Your Phone app.

Android Q 'multi-resume' Will Let Apps Run Simultaneously In Split-screen

Android Q ‘Multi-Resume' Will Let Apps Run Simultaneously In Split-Screen


Google officially brought multi-window functionality to Android with Nougat. It was the first uniform implementation of this feature that had existed on Android in different forms and manifestations prior to Nougat. There is one major limitation, though. Apps can be opened in split-screen but Android doesn’t run the two apps simultaneously. This will change with a new feature called “Multi-Resume” which will come with Android Q.

As smartphone displays have become larger, they’re more than capable of allowing users to have two apps open at once. Android lets them do this but even though it allows for two apps to be on the screen at the same time, it actually retains one as active and pauses the other one.

Android P Will Show Upcoming Events On The Lock Screen

If you're the type that has a lot of events scheduled, unlocking your phone and having to check the calendar constantly can be rather annoying, especially since those seconds add up over the course of the day. However with Android P, it seems that Google is changing that by displaying events on your lock screen.

This is according to the folks at Android Police who took a look at the second developer preview of Android P that was released recently. For those wondering why this looks a bit familiar, it is because it is similar in concept to the upcoming events feature found on the Google Pixel 2, but in terms of how the information is displayed, that's where it differs.

How To Mirror Android Screen On Your TV

Mirroring your Android smartphone or tablet to a TV used to be quite an ordeal, which usually involved rooting the phone or using a bunch of cables. Not anymore, though, thanks to manufactures integrating Mirroring in their very own UIs, a slew of free apps on Play Store and Chromecast. In this tutorial, we are going to be showing you how to easily mirror your Android device’s display to your TV, both wirelessly and via cable.

If your TV supports WiFi then this is the way to go, if it doesn’t, then please skip to the second method. Before going any further, though, make sure your TV is on and that it is connected to the same WiFI network as your Android device. The process is very simple.

Chrome OS Canary Channel Gets Split-Screen Support For Android Apps


Google’s Chrome OS is expected to make its way to tablet form factors in the not too distant future which is why it would be wise for Google to offer more features that improve the Android app experience on Chrome OS-powered devices. Split-screen support is one of the features which can contribute to that and it’s now available for Android apps on Chrome OS in the Canary channel.

For those who are unaware, a Canary build is a newly compiled version of the software that hasn’t been properly tested. It’s meant for those who just want to see what’s new as soon as possible and discover the worst bugs. These builds are certainly not meant for public consumption.

Alleged Render Of The Sony Xperia Xz2 'confirm' All-screen Design

Alleged Render Of The Sony Xperia XZ2 'Confirm' All-Screen Design

We have been hearing rumors that for Sony's next-gen flagship smartphone, they will be introducing a new design, one that will follow the trend of the phones we're seeing these days, which is an all-screen design with minimal bezels. Now thanks to an image uploaded onto Slashleaks (via Techiestate), we might have an idea of what to expect.

For the most part it seems that Sony has somehow managed to retain its signature look, but as you can see and assuming the image is accurate, the bezels on the sides of the phone are considerably thinner, resulting in a phone with an edge-to-edge display. That being said, we can't say for sure if this image is the real deal, so obviously take it with a grain of salt for now.
