Building on their existing partnership, Samsung and Microsoft have revealed plans for more integrations between the new Galaxy Note 20 series devices and Windows 10 and Office apps.
In a blog post, Microsoft explainedthat ‘Your Phone’ app and ‘Link to Windows’ integration on select Samsung devices, enables users to take calls, check notifications, see photos and messages, all from their Windows 10 PC.
Now, Samsung Galaxy Note20 will support this feature as well. Users will thus be able to access and interact with their favorite mobile apps directly on your Windows 10 PC through the Your Phone app.
Samsung and Microsoft said that they will also make it seamless to transition between your Galaxy Note20 and Microsoft 365 apps with instant access to your most important notes across your devices. Coming soon, notes from Samsung Notes can automatically sync with your OneNote feed in Outlook on the web or OneNote as an image.
Moreover, Xbox has also partnered with Samsung to make gaming more accessible to players around the world, via the cloud. With cloud gaming (beta) as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Microsoft’s gaming subscription service, members can play Xbox games on their Xbox console, PC and Android devices using an Xbox controller.
Beginning September 15, Samsung will be supporting xCloud game streaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (the gateway to Microsoft’s cloud gaming) on the Galaxy Note 20. Customers who pre-order the new Galaxy Note20 can select the Gaming Bundle at purchase, which includes three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
