Microsoft has already begun to test in the latest Windows 10 Insider build (19619) one more new and interesting function that will come to the Your Phone application: the possibility of control all the music that is played on our mobile phone directly from our computer.
Best of all, it will support the vast majority of popular music apps, it’s not just about local playback. The idea is to be able to control what you hear in Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, YouTube Music, Google Podcast, Pandora and more.

It will be gradually arriving in the next few days
The best of all is that you don’t have to wait for a new version of Windows 10 to be able to enjoy the new feature. Remember that the Your Phone app lives in the Microsoft Store and therefore is updated independently of the system.
Microsoft says the feature will be rolling out gradually over the next few days, so you may have to wait a bit and not see it right away on your computer. Try going to the store app and getting updates. You should also take into account the requirements:
- Mobile with Android 7.0 or higher
- Windows 10 October 2018 Update or later
- Give permissions to the corresponding music app to show notifications on Android
- If you already have notifications activated in the Your Phone app, the audio controls for your mobile will be displayed automatically, otherwise you will have to activate them
If the music app you use does not support multimedia controls in Android notifications, it will not be supported by the Your Phone app.. You can check in the settings of Your Phone if the option to show what you are listening to on your mobile is active.
Microsoft continues to improve the integration of Android with Windows 10. To date, the Your phone app lets us do everything: look at the photos of the mobile phone on the computer easily, make and receive calls, manage SMS, and view notifications from Android on the PC. This is yet another advantage for that curious convergence that continues to unite Google’s mobile system with Microsoft’s desktop.
