Microsoft releases an option to control the music played on a mobile phone by PC
Anyone using newer versions of Windows may have already encountered an option to set up cell phone on the Microsoft system. With this feature, it is possible to control some functions of the cell phone from the computer, such as calls and messages, for example. It is even possible to reply to messages received directly by the computer.
To do this, simply download the Windows add-on on your phone, which is available on the Play Store and configure it with your computer.
However, the novelty now lies in the fact that it is possible to control the music playing on the smartphone directly from the computer. The function, which is still in the testing phase, is possible to control the songs played on Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, Youtube Music, Google Podcasts, Pandora and Xiaomi Music.
To take advantage of the feature, the application for Windows must be updated to version 1.20051.93.0, while for Android it must be version 1.20051.113.0.
While the function is still being tested in the beta version of the applications, the Windows Latest team has also discovered two other novelties. The first is that the application will have a PiP (Picture in Picture) function that will allow you to open a separate SMS conversation in Windows, which can be dragged to any part of the desktop. The other function is that the SMS chat page in the application will have an icon to initiate a call with a specific contact.
So far there is no information on when the function will be officially released, however we know that the tests will still take place for a few months.
