On Android, you'll find Timeline integrated with the Microsoft Launcher, and on iOS, it will be built into the Edge app, and. The Timeline feature was pushed to almost 700 million Windows 10 users as part of April 2018 update last month. At least that's how Microsoft is advertising the app; we will have to wait and see if the actual functionality will live up to the promise. The company is also making it possible to access your browsing sessions stored on Timeline from your iPhone using the Edge browser.

Any Office 365 app will be able to put their experiences into the Timeline, and it'll all automatically sync across everything you're signed into with the same Microsoft ID. The idea behind this app is to enable users to mirror their handset directly to their desktop computer.

This app was prematurely published on the Microsoft Store last week, but it didn't seem to work.

Having dropped out of the market itself, Microsoft has released a number of apps that allow users to move seamlessly between phone and PC. IT admins can now manage the Launcher and control what applications show up there.

Like Apple and Google, Microsoft also envisioned an ability to pause and resume applications and services across multiple devices.

Rather than juggling your PC and your phone every time the latter buzzes with a new notification, Your Phone will put a window of that content on the Windows 10 desktop. Users can, from their PC, grab photos, see notifications and view and answer text messages.

Microsoft has announced that it will begin testing the Your Phone app with Windows Insiders this week. On the iOS Utilities charts, Edge ranks 12th, far behind the Google Chrome and Google apps, which rank second and third. Oddly, Microsoft doesn't mention other file types in its materials, though it'll likely support those, too. Heck, we haven't even really seen it beyond the press image above.
