Check How to Check Android Phone Notifications on Windows PC

In 2019, Microsoft finally got its own framework for monitoring Android warnings from Windows. Since then, it’s possible to see notifications from your Android phone on your Windows 10 or 11 PC when they appear and, if important, to get your entire SMS history as well as upcoming notifications. In fact, you can reply to messages and create new messages right from your PC. The Windows app formerly called Your Phone was recently (and correctly) renamed Phone Link.

While you’re sitting and working at your PC and have your phone on the table, it’s not very good to have to open the laptop screen every time a warning pops up to see what it is. Everything is more advantageous when we can use our mobile from the PC and assuming that we have Windows 10 or Windows 11, we can do it from the official Microsoft application.

Lately, Microsoft has been working on coordinating our Android devices with their Windows operating systems, to achieve the best connection between the two operating systems and your Link to Windows app, regardless of any other portable connection you get.

How to Check Android Phone Notifications on Windows PC

First, on your Windows computer, make sure you have the latest version of the Your Phone app:

  • Open Microsoft Store and search for Phone Link.
  • If the application is not yet installed, install it.
  • If the application is installed, click Open.
  • You will be redirected to the Your Phone app. Click on Start.
  • You will be reminded which Microsoft account you are signed into. Unless you want to switch accounts, click Continue.

I understand? Good. It’s time to move on to the phone side.

  • You will receive instructions on where to go on your Android phone to install the Link to Windows app. For most phones, you’ll have to type in the web link provided, or you can search the Play Store on your own and then install it. If you have a Surface Duo or some Samsung phones, Link to Windows will already be installed.
  • Open the Link to Windows app and tap Link your phone and PC.

Now back to your computer.

  • You should see a checkbox indicating that the Link to Windows application is ready. Verify it, then click Pair with QR Code. A pop-up window will appear with a QR code.

back to your phone

  • You should see a box asking if the QR code on your PC is ready. As it is, tap Continue on your phone. Allow Link to Windows to take photos and record videos.
  • Scan the QR code on the computer with your phone. It should connect.
  • Grant the app the various permissions it requests.
  • You will be warned that staying connected may affect battery life. Tap Continue, then allow or deny the background run permission.
  • Your phone will tell you to check your computer, and your computer will tell you that you’re ready.

on your computer

  • You’ll be welcomed into the app and prompted to pin it to your Windows 11 taskbar. You’ll then see everything you can do, like view notifications, send text messages, view photos, or make a call.
    • But you’re not done yet. There is only a bit of configuration left, the part that allows notifications to pass.
  • If you’re still on the intro screen, you can click See my notifications. Alternatively, if you’re in the main Phone Link app window, you’ll see Notifications in the left menu; click on it. You will be prompted to allow syncing of notifications.
  • Click Open Settings on Phone. On your phone, this should have taken you to device and app notifications. Find the Link to Windows app in the list and enable the switch next to it.
  • Tap Allow in the confirmation window that appears.
