This new feature in Your Phone app was first demoed at the Surface event in October past year, and it's now up for testing in the latest Insider build of Windows 10.

Announced today, a new Windows 10 preview build (Build 18356 - 19H1) supports wireless Android screen mirroring for select devices, allowing you to control your smartphone from your computer. Microsoft on Monday issued a brief support note to address this new behavior in case you experience it. If an issue is discovered, then the update will be removed and the PC will reboot to resolve the issue. If you managed to ignore those update notifications entirely and you hung on to your installation of Windows 7, get ready, because those desktop notifications are about to make a comeback.

Windows automatically installs updates to keep your device secure and running at peak efficiency.
