For those who work with or on their smartphones a lot, being able to transfer files between their mobile device and a PC can be invaluable. It's even better if you can do it quickly and conveniently, which is what Microsoft has in mind. The Your Phone app now allows devices with the "Link to Windows" feature to connect to your PC for an easy way to drag-and-drop for files.
First provided to Windows Insiders as a beta feature, Microsoft has begun to roll out the drag-and-drop feature for the Your Phone app recently. According to Roberto Bojorquez from Microsoft, the feature will gradually be available to all Windows users. This feature, exclusive to Samsung Galaxy devices, was announced about two weeks ago.
Starting now and through the next few weeks, Drag & Drop will be rolling out beyond windows insiders to all #linktowindows users. When this feature reaches your device you will see a pop up.

For those unfamiliar with Your Phone, it's an app that allows you to link an Android device of version 7.0 and above to a Windows PC. Once connected, you'll be able to make calls from your PC, check your notifications, and also access your apps through your PC. However, there are still no signs that Microsoft is enabling this feature for non-Samsung smartphones, which is unfortunate.
Now that the feature is rolling out to all Windows users, we hope that Microsoft will start to allow more devices to use the features in the Your Phone app. With that said, what do you think about this app?
