How to Get Android Notifications on PC with Microsoft Your Phone

Jumping back and forth between your phone and your PC to check notifications can be annoying. Some messaging apps have web clients, so you don’t have to open your device to carry on a conversation. But there’s an easier way to reply to messages, check notifications, and open your Android device’s screen without having to take your eyes off your PC. Thanks to a recent update, Microsoft’s Your Phone app now lets users view their Android notifications and reply to messages directly from a Windows 10 PC. The update initially launched for Windows Insiders, but is now rolling out to all users. And it couldn’t be any easier to set up.

If you’re working at your computer and your phone goes off, you can grab it, unlock it, and check the notification, likely throwing off your workflow. Or, you could just sync your notifications to your computer, so they show up right there — which really makes a lot more sense. If you want to get notification on your PC, then I have written a complete step by step guide so you can set up your android phone with your PC.

As mentioned, it is very easy to sync your notification. Just go through the given guide and you will be all set. You wont have to check your phone every second if there is any notification.
