Windows Insiders who are running Your Phone app are now getting the ability to run multiple Android apps simultaneously right on their Windows 10 PCs. The announcement was made on Twitter by Analy Otero Diaz, Principal Program Manager at Microsoft, who confirmed that the feature is gradually rolling out to select Samsung devices.

As a reminder, the feature extends the existing functionality of the Your Phone apps experience that currently lets Windows 10 users run one Android app on their desktops. With this new capability, select Samsung users will now be able to conveniently pin all their favorite mobile apps to the Taskbar for quick access, making them feel a little bit more native.

It is important to note that the feature is exclusive to a select list of Samsung Phones, and the full list is available here. If your device is on this list, it’s also recommended to have the latest version of the Your Phone app, and Link to Windows. Also, be sure to connect your phone and PC must be on the same WiFi network to make it work. We invite you to check out the Microsoft Answers forum to learn more about this feature.
