Microsoft is announcing a new app called “Your Phone” for Windows 10 that offers a deeper connection of your phone with your PC. The app will be available for iPhone and Android phones, and according to the company, it’ll be a window into your phone to access texts, photos, and notifications from your Windows 10 PC.

Although features will be slightly different whether you have an iOS or Android device, you’ll be able to receive and send text messages, check all your notifications, and things like drag and drop photos from your phone onto your computer without having to reach for your mobile device.

The company is planning to make available a preview of “Your Phone” to participants of the Windows Insider program in the coming days to allow testers to send feedback to see if the new continuity feature will become part of Windows 10.
