Microsoft has rolled out an update for its Windows 10 operating system that includes the ability to answer incoming calls on your Android smartphone on your computer. Windows’ Calls feature relies on the screen, microphone, and speakers on your PC to let you answer, make, and decline calls to your phone. Microsoft launched the Insider Preview Build 18999 (20H1) on Tuesday as an early release to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring.

The new update will let you take incoming calls on your PC

First announced in August during Samsung’s Unpacked event, the Calls feature can send incoming calls to voicemail on your phone, use your PC to access recent calls, and transfer calls from your phone to your PC and vice versa.

The feature only works with Android 7.0 or later versions, and you need a computer running on Windows 10 with a Bluetooth radio as well as a 19H1 build or more recent. In addition, the Windows 10 version on your PC must be build 18632.356 minimum.

However, one issue with this app is that you have to unpair then re-pair the PC and phone.

In the coming days, Microsoft will roll out the Calls feature to Windows Insiders on 19H2 builds and newer.
