On Windows 11, the Phone Link app doesn’t restrict you to one device. You can actually set up multiple phones, such as two or more Android or iPhone devices, and in this guide, you will learn how.

Phone Link is the app that comes as part of the default experience of Windows 11 that allows you to connect your Android and iPhone devices to your computer to make and receive calls, send and receive messages, manage notifications, and access your photos, among other things (depending the platform).

If you happen to use more than one phone, you can easily connect them to the app. You only need to know where to find the option.

This guide will teach you the steps to connect more than one phone to Windows 11 using the Phone Link app.
