Being able to easily communicate with co-workers has become increasingly important while working from home during the pandemic which is why Microsoft has continued to release constant updates for Teams.

However, the software giant is also working to improve how users communicate using their smartphones on Windows 10 through its Your Phone app

Now though it looks like Microsoft could soon introduce a redesigned setting page as well as a dedicated page that displays all of your smartphone contacts in Your Phone, according to a recent tweet from Alumia.

New Your Phone features

The app's settings menu has been redesigned to look more organized and now the General, My Devices, Features, Personalization, Help & Feedback and About sections now have their own individual menus as opposed to being displayed on one page. The My Devices section is particularly interesting as users with more than one smartphone may soon be able to use multiple devices with Microsoft's Your Phone app.

Additionally a new item has been added to the app's notification pane which has an icon that depicts a person and three lines suggesting users will soon be able to access all of their smartphone's contacts from the app.

Both of these new features appear to be in the development phase so it could take some time before they are officially launched. 

Until then though, you can install the app on your PC and on your Android smartphone to reply to text messages, access photos on your phone, mirror your smartphone's screen on Windows 10 and make calls using your PC.
