The feature had begun rolling out to Windows Insiders in November, following its initial announcement back in August 2020. Microsoft says that users with a supported Android smartphone should be running the Windows 10 May 2020 Update or newer to run the multiple apps experience on their PCs. A full list of compatible devices is available on this page.
The ability to run multiple Android apps simultaneously right from Windows 10 desktops is a welcome addition, but many users are still waiting to receive this capability on non-Samsung devices. To our knowledge, this isn’t something that’s currently being worked on. For now, you can help the company prioritize this feature by submitting your feedback on the Tech community forums.
