Windows 10 Anniversary Update Gets Android Notifications
It seems that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is getting better. Microsoft has teamed up with Ubuntu in order to build a Linux subsystem and Unix’s Bash shell into the Windows 10, which has surprised many users.
Well, it seems that Microsoft is now integrating Android features into its Windows 10 OS. With other words, if you are an Android user, then you will be able to mirror your smartphone/tablet notifications directly on your Windows 10 computer in order to make sure that you don’t lose any notifications. In addition, if you dismiss a notification on your Windows 10 OS, it will be automatically dismissed on your Android device.
In addition, Microsoft gives cloud features to the entire Action Center in Windows 10, which is allowing Windows 10 devices to sync notification center with one another. This means that when you will dismiss an Android notification on your Windows 10 laptop, it will not only dismiss it from your Android device, but also from your Windows 10 desktop computer.
When Google has released the Android 4.3, it allowed to “share” the entire notification panel off to other application. Microsoft is doing the same thing with its Cortana application, but you will need to have both devices connected t your Microsoft account. In addition, you will not just see the notification, but you will also be able to interact with them.
For example, if you receive a message on your our Android device, that message will also get to your tablet/desktop pc that runs on Windows 10. So, let’s assume that you are working on a project on a Windows 10 desktop PC and, suddenly, you receive a message on your Android device. You want to see what message you’ve received and from whom and maybe even reply to it, but you don’t want to waste too much time for doing this.
Well, if your Android device is connected to your Microsoft account and you have your Windows 10 desktop PC connected to the same Microsoft account, you will be able to not only read the message that you’ve just received on your Android device, but also to reply to it directly from your computer.
