Applications to create a better connection between Windows 10 and Android

connection between Windows 10 and Android

If you regularly use a Windows 10 PC and an Android phone or tablet, there are applications for better communication between Windows 10 and Android.

For example, you can start a quick note on your phone, then finish it later on your Windows 10 computer,

Or you can get the same appointment appointment on both devices.

Windows 10 compatible Android apps are all from Microsoft – and all are free.

To obtain the above type of interoperability,

You must log in with any Microsoft online account you use to sign in to your Windows 10 PC.

Log in to your Android app.

1. Cortana : Sync reminders between your Windows PC and your Android device

You can then tap “Set time” to set the time when you want a notification for this reminder to be sent to you.

You can also enter a destination (by tapping “Set Location”) that, when physically reached by your phone,

Start the notification or add an image to the reminder (“Add photo”).

2. OneDrive: Access your Windows 10 PC files with your Android device

You probably already know that Windows 10 comes with Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage service

Fully integrated into the operating system – displayed as a folder in File Explorer.

By dragging documents, images or other types of files to it, they are automatically uploaded to the cloud.

The OneDrive Android app  lets you view documents or images stored in your OneDrive folder.

If you tap a video or PDF file in your OneDrive cloud folder,

OneDrive app downloads it to your monitor. ا

If you tap a document, such as plain text or a Word document, the document will load on Android

The default device and application that you use to view this document template will download it.

You can also set up the OneDrive app

3. Outlook: Sync calendar events between your Windows 10 PC and your Android device.

Obviously, the  Android Outlook app is  primarily for accessing your email

It is intended for Microsoft services such as Exchange, Office 365 or

(Can also be used with your Gmail or Yahoo Mail account.)

But Outlook also has a calendar tool that syncs with Calendar on your PC in Windows 10.

– Through it you can enter appointments and reminders of things you need to do.

On the days and times you choose.

Your Android device and Windows 10 PC will send you alerts as the event deadline approaches.

In the Android app, tapping the third icon at the bottom of the home screen will take you to this calendar tool.

(It looks like a page from a daily calendar, which shows the current date.)

Then mark the day you want to remind you of the event

(By scrolling vertically through the list of dates below the calendar section at the top of the screen) Tap.

Next screen, tap the “+” button at the bottom right of the screen.

On the next screen, to set a new event, you select the time,

Enter a location for the event and determine how long you will receive the alert.

You can also add people who want to receive event notifications from your contact list.

Like setting reminders with Cortana, it does the opposite.

If you set appointments or events in the Calendar app on your Windows 10 computer,

Receive alerts on your Android phone through the Outlook app.
