If you use Windows, you might want to know that Microsoft’s Your Phone app has made it now even easier to pair your Android device to your computer. The best thing is that it gets fantastic updates, as well. Right now, Microsoft is running out another update for the Your Phone app, and it is all about music controls. Apparently, you will give music controls to your Android phone from your Windows PC.
How does the feature work?
This feature was announced a few weeks ago, and it allows users to control the music on their Android directly from their Windows 10 computer. We think this feature is essential for users. Spotify already allows its users to make the most out of the connected service. However, other services do not really offer the same features, such as YouTube Music. Your Phone app can now help you with that.
When you enable it, you will get a set of basic music controls, such as skipping tracks, play, and pause and they will all appear into your phone sidebar, together with the track information, the album art, and the name of the service that is playing the music.
The services that allow these option to work
These options work with Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, Xiaomi Music, Pandora, Google Podcasts, and Amazon Music.
These are the versions you will need for the app to work
This functionality is live in the the latest updates to the app. Keep in mind that you will need to be on version 1.20051.93.0 on your Windows PC and version 1.20051.113.0 on Android.
