As per Microsoft, the feature will gradually roll out to Insiders on 19H1 builds. The tech giant also informed that it may take a few days for this feature to show up inside the Your Phone app. You can use the Your Phone app on any Windows 10 PC running Windows builds 1803 (RS4) or newer and most Android phones running Android version 7.0 or newer.

With the new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18885 (20H1), Microsoft also added support of 'Notifications' to Your Phone app.

The configuration requirement for Notifications feature is as follows:

1. Android devices version 7.0 and greater with at least 1GB of RAM.

 

2. Windows 10 PC running Windows builds 1803 (RS4) or newer.

3. Not supported on devices that have Notification Access disabled by work or other policy.

Microsoft has also listed some issues in its blog related to new updates. Microsoft's blog reads that some notifications may not appear automatically. Users should press refresh to see an updated list of notifications. Besides, Notification responses are not supported.

Notably, you need to install the Microsoft's Your Phone app on your Android phone to screen mirror in real-time on a Windows 10 machine. Post setup, you can have instant access to everything on your phone, right on your PC.
