If this concept doesn't sound counter-intuitive to you, then you can embrace it by enabling the feature and configuring it in the Your Phone app Notifications settings panel.

This week MSPowerUser reports that Microsoft has added support for a few more devices from Samsung (Galaxy S10, Note 8 and Note 9 join the already-supported Galaxy S8 and S9) and OnePlus (the 6 and 6T models, only available on import here). Not only can you customize which app notifications you receive on within Windows 10, but you can also clear all notifications at once with a simple click.

Some Windows 10 users will be forced to double the amount of space on their PC to install future updates, as Microsoft has increased the amount of storage required to install its newest software. "Dismiss a notification on one device and it goes away on the other", the company wrote in a blog-post.

Notifications will become available to the Your Phone app over the next couple of days. The feature will work similarly to how Apple handles iPhone notifications on Macs and MacBooks.

When Microsoft released the Your Phone app earlier this year, it gave Windows 10 users the ability to mirror their Android phone screen onto their PC.

On Friday, Microsoft announced that the Your Phone desktop application is gaining a new feature: Notifications.

Notifications is now available within Windows Insider Build 18885 and lets testers receive notifications from apps like WhatsApp, Snapchat, and Uber in real time. However, that is the full depth of the interactivity - for example you can't directly respond via the notification pop-up.
