The Your Phone App from Microsoft has been seen getting a huge number of updates these days. And trust me on this, these updates are sufficient enough to make the Windows users use this app on a day to day basis. Recently, the app got the ability to Sync Phone Notifications and currently, it is working on a feature that will enable users to make phone calls directly from the Windows PC. And now we have the cherry on the cake – Redmond Giant is now adding a battery indicator which will let the users know when to charge their smartphones. Isn’t that amazing?
For now this Battery Indicator feature is available only for the Windows Insiders in the Microsoft’s Your Phone App. These users will see a battery icon in the top right corner of the sidebar which will indicate the amount of battery remaining in the smartphone. One can also see the exact battery percentage by simply pointing the mouse towards the icon.
To use ‘Your Phone’, one will have to install the app on their computer and Smartphone as well. And they will also have to log in using the same Microsoft Account on both the devices. The major requirements here are – The Android device the users use should be running on Android Nougat or Above for running the app. And with the Windows, the PC users have should be Windows 10 April 2018 Update or above. But the most crucial part here is the latest insider build of Windows 10 to use the feature of battery indicator.
For now this battery indicator oriented version of Your Phone App is limited to the Insiders but it certainly will make its way to all the Windows 10 users once it is mature enough for usage by a huge number of people. I personally have found this feature an amazing one. What about you? Let us know in the comment section below!

Basically a gamer, I tend to find Android so amusing that ended up creating a blog where I could share with you all that i am aware of and could be. Passion overtook me to an extent that I decided to be a full time technology blogger. Besides gaming, eating sleeping and Androiding is what keeps me going!
