Bringing the Windows 10 Experience to Android and iOS
Bringing the windows 10 experience to Android and iOS is very possible, trust me, it is something you would love to know about. As a result of this, we don’t need to kill ourselves trying to create apps that function that way.
Instead of the stress, Windows 10 will be used directly on your Android and iOS devices. How can this be? This article contains all the answers and details you need.
I’m also happy to tell you that you can apply this on your device no matter the make. Whether Google, Samsung, Apple, Nokia, you name them.
Phone Companion-windows 10 experience
Interestingly, with a phone companion, your phone will always be in sync with your Microsoft account. As a result of this, most people refer to it as “Your Phone app for windows 10”. While you’re installing this, some other apps will have to be present on your Android or iPhone. These other apps include:
- Microsoft Photos
- Microsoft Office
It is also good you know that the above set of apps must be downloaded and installed on your phone. This is for you to be able to sync the Window Your phone app with your mobile phone.
The download and installation could be from the Google Play Store or Apple app store. Well, all this is dependent on the class of the phone you have. After you do this, you can go ahead with the steps below.
Microsoft OneDrive for iOS and Android
Microsoft OneDrive stores your windows 10 documents, photos, videos, and other files you deem fit to the cloud. What’s more? You can access all these easily on your device.
Don’t think it’s only big files that you can see. No. Even the smallest of files, little tiny notes made with OneNote will also show on your device. Going a step ahead, any correction you make using your device will also be synced.
And will be made to take effect across anywhere you can access your account. Additionally, you can store up your pictures by uploading them to your OneDrive safely. Afterward, you can view and even edit them on your computer.
Interestingly, your OneDrive account comes with a whooping free storage space of 5GB. There is also the option to purchase more space. With Microsoft365 you get the opportunity to access a 1TB space for up to 5 users.
Integrating Cortana for iOS and Android
The Cortana app helps you work smartly. You can easily plan your whole day, week, month and even year with the Cortana app. Furthermore, on the Cortana app, reminders saved up on your computer can be accessed on your Smartphone. This is achievable using the Cortana digital assistant. The only requirement is to pair up your phone app with the system. What can Cortana do for you? It can help you in the following ways:
- Figuring out answers to your questions on the web.
- Find and set appointments as well as reminders in your Outlook calendar.
- Make calls and send text messages from your computer.
- Receive notifications on your computer for apps.
Unfortunately, Microsoft has announced that they will not support the Cortana mobile app. This is because they want to promote integrating Cortana’s functionality into specific Microsoft programs like Outlook and Office. On the good side, you will be able to use Cortana for selected apps.
But it can’t become the default voice assistant. Neither will it be an alternative to Siri or Google Assistant for your mobile phones.
