Windows 10 ‘Your Phone' App Can Mirror Notifications From Android Devices


Microsoft’s ‘Your Phone’ app for Windows 10 allows for greater connectivity between your PC and smartphone. The idea is to enable users to interact with content on their smartphone without requiring them to use the device as long as it’s connected to their Windows 10 PC wirelessly. Checking notifications is why most of us pick up our phones so many times every day and that’s just going to get a bit easier with the latest update to the app.

The latest update for Your Phone now brings the ability to mirror notifications from an Android smartphone to a Windows 10 PC. This functionality has been in testing for a couple of months now and it’s finally being made available to all users starting today.

How To Use Gmail Confidential Mode (Windows, Android, iOS)

Sending emails hasn’t changed much in the last decade or so. Yes, the user interface has gotten better and we have more features but the basic stuff remains the same. Despite all the newness security is still one of the main concerns we have while using email. Gmail has decided to tackle this issue with the help of Gmail Confidential mode.

You might be wondering what is Gmail Confidential mode? No, it’s not an encryption service by Gmail. The confidential mode works by deleting the email after a specific time period, much like the burner phones most of us have used in the past.

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.

Developer Manages To Get Windows 10 Running On The Nintendo Switch

Developer Manages To Get Windows 10 Running On The Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch, designed primarily as a gaming device, is slowly starting to become a modder’s dream. Previously we saw how some developers managed to get Android Q up and running on the console (albeit in somewhat limited form), and now it seems that someone has managed to get Windows 10 running on the console as well.

In a post on Twitter by @imbushuo (via TechRadar), he shows a photo of the Nintendo Switch running with Windows 10 in the background. However there are a couple of catches, one of which is that the version running is the Windows 10 ARM version. Secondly it seems that the software isn’t quite fully functional yet as it only boots to the Windows logo and recovery screen, but that’s pretty much the extent.

Microsoft Nudges Windows 10 Mobile Users To Switch To Ios Or Android

Microsoft Nudges Windows 10 Mobile Users To Switch To iOS Or Android


Very rarely you’d see a company tell its users to shift to a competing platform but Microsoft is doing just that. The company gave up on Windows-powered mobile phones quite a while back and is now gearing up to kill the platform. It’s recommending to Windows 10 Mobile users that they should switch to iOS or Android.

A change has been spotted on the Windows 10 Mobile support page on Microsoft’s website. It tells Windows 10 Mobile users that Microsoft will stop sending out “new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free assisted support options, or technical content updates from Microsoft for free” starting December 10th, 2019.

Windows 10 Lets Users Mirror Their Android Phones On Their Computer

Windows 10 Lets Users Mirror Their Android Phones On Their Computer

There is a reason why there are many mobile apps that are now offering desktop counterparts. This is because switching between our phones and desktops can be distracting and can take away from our focus, however as much as we would like, not all mobile apps are readily available on the desktop just yet.

However Microsoft is hoping to change that as the company has announced a new feature for Windows 10 called “Your Phone”. This is basically a feature that mirrors what’s on your phone onto your computer. This means that users will be able to use any app on their phone on their computer as it essentially mirrors the content, meaning that users won’t have to wait for developers to create a desktop-friendly version of the app.

School In Ghana Doesn't Have Pcs, Teacher Draws Windows On Blackboard Instead

School In Ghana Doesn’t Have PCs, Teacher Draws Windows On Blackboard Instead


A teacher in Ghana has received global recognition after photos of him teaching his students about Microsoft Word went viral. Since the school didn’t have PCs which could be used to teach the students about Windows and Microsoft Word, the information and communication technology teacher Richard Appiah Akoto decided to draw an entire Microsoft Word processing window on a blackboard with multi-colored chalk.

Akoto is the ICT teacher at the Betenase M/A Junior High School in Sekyedomase, which is about two and a half hours north of the city of Kumasi. The school doesn’t have any computers even though 14 and 15 year old students are expected to pass a national exam with ICT as one of the subjects. They can’t progress to high school if they don’t pass that exam.

Microsoft Looking To Ditch Passwords In Windows 10 S

Microsoft Looking To Ditch Passwords In Windows 10 S

Due to the fact that different applications, services, and websites use different styles of passwords (some require alphanumeric passwords, some require symbols, some ask for a mix of upper and lowercase), it can be a hassle to try and remember all of them. Password managers are one way to go about this, but what about ditching passwords entirely?

That seems to be something that Microsoft is considering for Windows 10 S. According to Microsoft's announcement, "Do you hate entering your passwords all the time? So do we. Passwords are inconvenient and insecure. With Windows 10 S you don't have to! Just download the Authenticator App and use it to set up your Windows 10 S PC. You will be able to go through the out-of-box experience, set up Windows Hello and access all your favorite apps and services – all without ever having to enter your password."

Final Fantasy Xv Windows Edition Offers Xbox One Cross-play

Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition Offers Xbox One Cross-Play

For the longest time ever, consoles and PCs played separate from one another. This meant that if you played a game on the Xbox, you could only play with other Xbox gamers, and so on. For the most part this is still true, although the companies behind the consoles and also developers are starting to incorporate cross-play.

The good news is that this will also apply to Square Enix's Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition. For those who purchase the upcoming title, it seems that a listing on the Microsoft Store has revealed that it will support cross-play with the Xbox One. However there is a huge catch, and that is you will have to purchase the game via the Microsoft Store.
