How to get Android notifications on your Windows PC
Thanks to the recent Windows 10 Anniversary Update, you can now get Android notifications
on your Windows 10 PC.
This feature works through Cortana and the Cortana app for Android (there’s a Cortana app for
iOS, but iOS doesn’t support this kind of fancy notification-mirroring). Once set up, your
Windows 10 action center will be able to tell you when you miss a call, receive a text or have a
low battery on your Android phone. You will also be able to receive app notifications from any
app you have installed, and you can even control your phone via your computer with voice
commands — for example, you can say “Hey, Cortana, find my phone,” and Cortana will locate
your phone on a map.
1. Download and install the Cortana app from Google Play on your Android device. Cortana is
officially only available to US users; non-US users can download the app from APKMirror.
2. Open the app and sign in with your Windows account.
