Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18999 released on October 8 lets you answer Android calls from your PC. The Windows 10 update feature allows you to seamlessly transfer calls between your PC and phone.
Answering and dialing calls from your PC was announced at Samsung Unpacked Event in August.
No need to dig for your Android phone to answer your personal or work calls. You can now stay connected by simply answering (or not) your phone calls on your PC. Tap into your PC’s speakers, microphone, and large screen for a richer calling experience.Says Microsoft
How does it work
The call feature allows you to pick incoming Android calls from your PC but you can also initiate a call from your PC by using an in-app dialer or contact list.
Additionally, you can decline incoming phone calls right from your PC with custom text or send directly to your phone’s voicemail. Also, access your recent call history on your PC.
According to Microsoft “Clicking on a specific call will auto populate the number within the dialer screen.”

- Android Phones 7.0 or higher
- Windows 10 PC with Bluetooth radio
- Requires 19H1build or newer
- Requires minimum Windows 10 build 18362.356
If you want to test out the feature you need to be registered with the Windows Insider Program.
