  • Microsoft Launcher 5.0 for Android brings new Feed UI, Timeline support, and more

Microsoft is now rolling out the all-new "Your Phone" app for all Windows 10 users with the new Windows 10 October update.

It's similar to Samsung's SideSync (but much more basic) or the open-source scrcpy display server. The app eventually allows users to access their phone's content right from the Windows 10 computer itself.

Initially, the app will be launched with the functionality for Photos and Text messaging app, and soon a feature-rich app for Android device will be released. So there's plenty to do.

To date the Your Phone app has had various names, but has been underwhelming.

To be clear, the world knew that the October Update was coming, but there was no fixed release set so far, and Microsoft tends to release updates on the second Tuesday of each month. It has added a Microsoft To-Do app that helps you manage and prioritise tasks. The updated game bar will offer better audio customization, easier-to-use capture tools, and the ability to block Windows Update from interrupting your gaming session (maybe there is a god after all?). As noted previously, Intel has said that this affects some Skylake or newer chips, using versions through to of this particular driver.

"DirectX Raytracing allows games to achieve a level of realism unachievable by traditional rasterization". The Windows 10 Game Bar has also been redesigned to include system performance metrics too.

'Real-time ray tracing is often quoted as being the holy grail of graphics and it's a key part of a decades-long dream to achieve realism in games. I've had this app tell me I'm on "the latest version" even when I'm not. However it started downloading the update and I am now being prompted to schedule a restart to install it... Manipulating your snipped content beyond simple highlighter markups is now possible with the new tool.
