    I like the app even if it is bit simple - maybe general file access option would be last thing I would like though the photo access already is very neat. Sadly; the program stopped working, my PC cannot get any data from the phone even if the pairing is successfully done on both ends, still, I cannot get my notifications, photos or messages show up and only gives an error even after trying to completely reinstall both the Windows program and phone companion, nothing makes it work for me anymore...

    Appallingly difficult to set up - looks like it needs redesigning. Next day .... have now connected my laptop and Android phone - the reply from Microsoft/Google Play told me that the Your Phone Companion is built in to Android - which makes accessing the app more difficult because a search for Your Phone Companion on the phone doesn't show up anything familiar. Eventually I was shown a link which was to be typed in to the laptop - and then a QR barcode connection secured the link that I was looking for. Not obvious to a layman - but it worked - thankyou.

    Great once you get it installed. I followed all the steps suggested in troubleshooting, but it still took several times trying before I was finally able to get it installed. I think inspemt a good hour or more just installing it. What finally helped move the installation along was deactivating the phone in the program a couple of times and then starting the process over. Got it work though and I am happy.

    I have the latest updates of the app installed on both my phone and my PC but the apps feature is still not available to me and I'm waiting eagerly for it. Also the feature that allows me to answer calls on my PC seems to have some problem where it crashes the PC whenever I receive a WhatsApp call on my phone. Other than that the app seems fine.

    This app is absolutely horrible! Don't expect any help from Microsoft...they only respond when you leave a negative review. Then the response is just a link to troubleshooting. I've already gone through every step of the pages of troubleshooting. Don't waste your time, this app as well as Microsoft support is pathetic. I'm sure they will respond to this negative review with no practical solution, just the standard useless troubleshooting link.

    Worked at first and then... sucked! It worked for a while which was great and then stopped syncing. I changed nothing, I'm logging in from the same account. I tried from scratch to get the phone and my windows 10 pc to link up and all that happens is nothing it just starts the link process over and over and over. Yeah... sucks!

    Very often doesn't work, refuses to sync. Just says "Check your PC", while on the PC side, the pc app doesn't say anything, or the PC says "Check your phone" or "We need your phone's permission to sync" (but pressing the "Open settings on Phone" button doesn't do anything, and under settings, "Your Phone Companion" is listed as "allowed"). It also often messes with calls, especially when a I have a bluetooth headset connected to my phone.

    This app is totally hosed. I tried using link to windows several times. Got to the baroda, scanned it, and got a message that there was no app. Then it seemed to connect, though the Surface only shows the phone and pc as "paired" So the your phone loaded Your Phone and hung on a white screen. This happened 3-4 times so I give up. Same rating 😞

    My note 10+ and my PC have met all the requirements and the your phone app on PC does allow me to open separate apps instead of phone screen. The problem is when I press any app on your phone app (with one tap on the app icon only), it keeps opening new windows with the same app name. Yet, none of the windows can show the app content and they all remain blank. After opening several windows, my Note 10+ is extremely hot and restarts automatically. So basically it is useless.

    I needed to factory reset my phone and hasn't connected since. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app but it opens for a second and then closes. On my PC there is no option to delete or add a phone so can't move ahead. Edit: it appears you can't remove this app only the updates, and therefore it there is a issue you can't start from scratch.
