As promised, Microsoft is extending support for more Samsung handsets and apps to let them cast in user’s Windows 10 PCs. Windows 10 Insiders having this year’s Samsung flagship devices allowed to cast their phone apps to their PC via Your Phone application. Which this is so limited in its inception, it’s now improved to support more apps, but with equivalent limitations.
Extended Support For Samsung Apps in Windows 10
Microsoft’s Your Phone app is surely having a purpose, but it’s still at the initial stages of its making. It’s having a lot of limitations and demands more works which aren’t needed by simple casting apps. Yet, an app made by Microsoft for running in its OS should make things smoother.
It has since picked Samsung phones to start with and has given a chance for Windows Insiders to test this early this year. And since it’s November, it has now updated the app with more support. Users who wanted to see more benefits of this Your Phone app should comply with many things including the supported handsets as;
- Galaxy Note20
- Galaxy Note20 ultra
- Galaxy Z Fold2
- Galaxy Z Flip
- Galaxy Z Flip 5G

These should be running on Samsung’s One UI 3.0 with Android 11 as a base. Further, the user’s PC should be running on Windows v2004 or later and be included in any of the Dev, Beta, or Release Preview channels like Windows Insider program. The Your Phone app should be in version 1.20102.132.0 or later and its Companion app on your related Samsung phone in version 1.20102.133.0 or later.
