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.

Fortnite Update Forces Xbox One And Ps4 Players To Fight Each Other

Fortnite Update Forces Xbox One And PS4 Players To Fight Each Other

The update will introduce crossplay matching between both consoles and players need to opt-in in order to play. If they don’t, then the game modes that they will be limited to will be Creative Mode and Playgrounds. According to Epic, the reason for this is, “Motivating factor is unlocking optimization potential allowing us to run more playlists during more hours of the day while supporting more data center locations. Please provide us with feedback on your experience!”

It’s actually a rather interesting approach as the debate on which console is better is still very much alive and well, and this forcing of Xbox gamers to fight against PlayStation gamers will go a long way in keeping that rivalry alive and well. It was late last year that Sony had finally allowed PS4 crossplay.

Android Q's Developer Preview Could Be Released Soon

Android Q's Developer Preview Could Be Released Soon

From what we know about Google’s release habits, they typically release a developer preview for Android early in the year. This will later be followed by an official announcement at Google I/O where they detail some of the features and changes we can expect, and then a full release in the later part of the year.

Given that we’re now towards the end of Q1 2019, it stands to believe that we could be approaching the release of the developer preview. In fact in a tweet by XDA Developers’ editor-in-chief, Mishaal Rahman, the bug tracker for Android Q has already been opened which suggests that the release of the developer preview could be close at hand.

Huawei Has A 'plan B' To Android Should It Ever Be Required

Huawei Has A 'Plan B' To Android Should It Ever Be Required

The majority of smartphones out there run on Google’s Android operating system. Even devices in China where Google’s services are almost non-existent are powered by the mobile operating system. We’re sure that many would much prefer using their own OS as it means more control over what it can do and what goes into it, but we imagine that it could be hard breaking Google’s grasp.

However it seems that Huawei is more than prepared. Speaking during an interview with German publication Welt, Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu revealed that the company has actually built and developed their own operating system should the day ever arise that Android is no longer available to them.

Nintendo Doesn't Want Gamers To Spend Too Much On Mobile Games

Nintendo Doesn't Want Gamers To Spend Too Much On Mobile Games

Oddly enough that doesn’t seem to be what Nintendo wants. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, it seems that Nintendo is apparently asking for developers of its mobile games to try and make it so that gamers won’t need to spend excessive amounts of money on its game.

This was revealed by an agent for CyberAgent, the developer behind the mobile Dragalia Lost title. “Nintendo is not interested in making a large amount of revenue from a single smartphone game. If we managed the game alone, we would have made a lot more.” Nintendo later confirmed this to be true in statement that reads, “We discuss various things, not just limited to payments, to deliver high-quality fun to consumers.”
