It’s now possible to get Android notifications on Windows PC, all thanks goes to the recent Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The latest feature works through Cortana and the Cortana app for Android. Although there’s a Cortana app for iOS, it doesn’t support notification mirroring.
Once you set up, the Windows 10 action center alerts you by incoming calls, texts, and app notifications on your Android phone. It will be able to inform you when you receive a text, miss a call, or have a low battery on your smartphone. You can also get app notifications from any installed app and control your device via your computer with voice commands. Like if you say, ‘Hey Cortana, find my phone’, and Cortana will find your phone on a map.
In this article, we’ve curated a step-by-step tutorial on how to get Android notifications on Windows PC. Let’s get started.
Get Android Notifications on Windows PC
- First of all, download and install the Cortana app from Google Play Store on your Android device
Cortana is officially available to US-based users only, while other users can download the app from APKMirror.
- Once you’ve installed the app, open it and sign in with your Windows account
- Next, tap the menu icon at the top-left corner of the app
- Navigate to Settings > Sync notifications
- In the next screen, you’ll get four different types of sync notifications: Incoming message notifications, Missed call notifications, Low battery notifications, and App notifications
By default, the first three notifications are turned on. While the App notifications needs notification access before it can be turned on. As soon as you turn this option on, you’ll get a new menu option that allows you to select specific apps to sync.
That’s all! This way you can get Android notifications on Windows PC.
