The Phone Link app on your Windows PC let's you get instant access to everything you love on your phone, right from your PC. Link your Android phone and PC to view and reply to text messages, make and receive calls, and more - all right on your PC.

The Phone Link experience starts on your PC with Windows 10 or Windows 11 and the Phone Link app. From your PC you can connect to select Android and Samsung devices with these two apps:
You’ll see these names combined as Your Phone Companion – Link to Windows in the Google Play Store and in the Galaxy Store. In the Microsoft Store, you’ll see Phone Link. This link between your device and PC gives you instant access to everything you love. Read and reply to text messages with ease, view recent photos from your Android device, use your favorite mobile apps, make and receive calls, and manage your Android device’s notifications right on your PC.
