Windows 11 and Android are lifting this cool component from macOS and iPhones

There will soon be a new Windows 11 preview build with an intriguing new feature. Through your mobile hotspot, you'll be able to connect directly to your Android phone from your computer.

According to Windows Central, Microsoft is now distributing a Windows 11 preview build that is exclusively accessible to Insiders on the Dev Channel. The preview build fixes a few problems and makes a few enhancements. Additionally, it looks that the next build will include a patch for Microsoft's Phone Link application.

With the help of the Windows Wi-Fi panel, this update will include new functionality that enables users to easily connect Windows 11 to the mobile hotspot on their phone. The new function is comparable to how macOS can quickly connect to an iPhone hotspot user.

Before you get too excited, the new Phone Link function is currently only compatible with Samsung smartphones running One UI 4.1.1 or higher. Microsoft might later add support for additional devices, such as the Surface Duo, but for the time being, Samsung users are the fortunate ones who get access to the feature.

Microsoft has recently been attempting to improve compatibility between Windows and Android. We recently reported that Microsoft has released a roadmap that indicated adding support for Android 13 to the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA). Additionally, the business this week introduced an Android 12L upgrade for its Surface Duo that has a Windows 11 taste.

Unfortunately, it's unclear whether or when Microsoft intends to make this new Phone Link feature more widely available.
