Windows 10’s latest feature means you might never pick up your phone again

Windows 10’s latest preview build for the update due in the first half of 2020 has hit the fast ring and majorly beefed up the Your Phone app, giving Android smartphone owners the ability to make (and receive) phone calls directly from their PC.
Build 18999 (20H1) introduces the ‘Calls’ feature to Your Phone which lets you answer calls on your PC, or if you prefer, decline a call with some predefined text, or send it directly to voicemail.
You can also fire up a phone call using the in-app dialer or direct from your contacts list. Furthermore, Your Phone gives users the ability to transfer calls between the PC and handset in a seamless manner, apparently.

So it will be a gradual rollout, which is par for the course these days, but seemingly it’s coming to 19H1 builds (or newer), with Microsoft noting that it requires a “minimum Windows 10 bu ...
