What, in your opinion, is the best way to mirror an Android phone in Win 11?

I've heard for a while this was supposed to be possible natively with Windows. Is it yet or are we relegated to hacks and workarounds? I'd really like to stop checking my phone throughout the workday if I don't have to.

Is there anything else at all that can be used? Phone link fails again for me. Worked last night for texts. This am, same house, pc, no changes, it can not connect. It has failed on me about 4 times, and each time only complete removal of the program and resetting up makes it work again.

theres this. I was using this for awhile. If you use google messages on your phone.
you can either download the pc app or use this site to chat through your browser.

or there is also install something like LDPlayer(100% FREE) Android Emulator on your PC and use google messages or whatever
app you wish. There are also screen mirroring apps for the PC(the Reciever app) that places the app on the PC and then you install the sender app on your phone and they connect VIA WIFI(IP Address)

If your phone is a Samsung, then use Samsung Flow. Miles ahead of Phone Link.

I installed flow on the samsung phone galaxy note 8, and the win11 pc. But it seems lame to me, there is no mirroring of Verizon Phone text messages. I assumed it would be like Phone Link works? I see notifications on the PC from the phone, and I can send a message to the phone from a PC, but it looks like a lot of extra steps like share the message in the phone app to the message app on the phone. So have to use it with phone in hand, send a message twice? Not going to work for me.

Excellent, works right away, very nice. Intuitive, mirrors with Google messaging on the phone which I already been using.
Thanks for pointing this in my direction.
