iPhone users can now use Phone Link on Windows 11. This feature from Microsoft lets them make and receive calls, send and receive iMessages, see contacts, and get notifications, without leaving their desks.
Phone Link App
The Phone Link app for iOS on Windows 11 is now being gradually distributed to all consumers. The company initiated this roll-out last month, and it is expected to be available in 39 languages across 85 markets. It might take a few weeks for all users to receive it, but it’s definitely worth the wait!
The call, message, and contact features of Phone Link leave a lot to be desired. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to respond to groups or send media files, which may not be sufficient for your needs. Microsoft warns that the only time you’ll receive a message is when your phone is physically linked to your computer. When a user receives a notice, they can choose to see it, pin it, or dismiss it directly from the Windows user interface.
The Phone Link setup process walks customers through connecting their iPhone over Bluetooth to their computer. To use Phone Link, you’ll need an iPhone, a Windows 11 PC or tablet, a Bluetooth connection, and the most recent version of the Phone Link app. iOS 14 is also required. The iPad (iPadOS) and Mac OS do not yet have any available support.
