According to information from the Windows Central website, the novelty is present only for members enrolled in the Microsoft Insider Preview program and the user must have a compatible smartphone to use the tool.

In this testing period, Microsoft has partnered with Samsung and only a few models of the brand have received support for this role at this time. Check out the South Korean manufacturer's phones that are compatible:

  • Samsung Galaxy Z series;
  • Samsung Galaxy S Series;
  • Samsung Galaxy Note series.

To be able to try the news is still necessary to have the latest preview of Windows 11, build 22557, which was released on Wednesday (16). The variant of the "Your phone" app must be 1.21092.145.0 or higher.

The developer also explained that both the Android smartphone and the PC need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network for synchronization to work perfectly. It is worth noting that only Insiders users have access for now.

On Tuesday (15), Microsoft released the first major update of Windows 11. The highlight was the initial release of the amazon app store's Android app integration and several other features and bug fixes.
