  • Microsoft's Your Phone app now supports multiple SIMs.
  • Users can select which SIM to use and to send messages from.
  • The app also now supports inline responses in the notifications area, as revealed last week.

Microsoft's Your Phone app continues to receive updates and new features for Insiders. Now, the app supports multiple SIMs, allowing users to select which SIM card they use with Your Phone and which card they send messages with.

Roberto Bojorquez, a group program manager working on Your Phone, revealed that multi-SIM support was rolling out to Insiders. The new feature came in part in response to feedback from Insiders.

In addition to adding support for multiple SIMs, Your Phone also gained the ability to reply to notifications within the notifications area of the app recently.

Your Phone continues to receive new updates and is one of Microsoft's apps that gains features most frequently. The app is the backbone of the Link to Windows feature for Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 devices. It will also gain the ability to relay phone calls later this year.

Your Phone allows you to sync text messages, photos, and notifications from your phone to your Windows 10 PC.

  • I really enjoy this app. One of the things I missed about having an iPhone+MacBook was the ability to answer phone calls and texts from my PC. I didn't have to take my phone out of my pocket, it just synced everything over without issues. I missed that until getting a Wintel system and this app. The phone call feature works fine and I can see every notification on my phone. Text answering is easy and performance is better than DeX has been. Plus having my phone's notifications accessible in the Windows notifications area has been a great feature. Unless I'm missing something, the only feature I would like now is for a direct link to my phone so I can use my Surface to surf the net without creating a hotspot.
  • Wintel? Is it 1997 already? Lol. I found it a little annoying to be honest. I am thinking of giving the link to Windows feature that Samsung just rolled out to the S10 line a try though.
