Send Texts from Windows 10 Using an Android Phone


Microsoft Your Phone text messages

The permissions you’ll want to be sure to “Allow” for the texting feature to work are “Contacts” and “SMS Messages.”

During the initial setup, it’s also important that you allow the Android app to run in the background. This will ensure that the device stays connected to your PC. Tap “Continue” when it asks to “stay connected.”

With all that permission-granting out of the way, the feature is now ready to use. Open the Your Phone app on your Windows PC and click the “Messages” tab in the side panel.

A new text box will appear, and you can search for a contact to message. Since we gave the app permission to view contacts, it will pull them from your Android device.

That’s all there is to it! You can now send and receive text messages on your Windows PC.
