Last year Microsoft had announced a Your Phone app that will lets users mirror the notifications on a phone to the connected PC. The app has now got an update that will let Android smartphone users view the notifications on their PCs, and in the process, giving them another reason to not to pull out the phone to check alerts. The update is being rolled out in a phased manner and to only Windows Insiders, which mean others won’t be able to test this feature yet.

The announcement was made by Vishnu Nath, Director of Program Management- Microsoft Mobile eXperiences, in a tweet. He also shared an image in which we can see notifications from Facebook Messenger, Twitter, OneDrive and Google lined up in a single window.
