As of March 23, 2020, it allows you to send messages straight from it to WhatsApp, and Instagram. With Bluetooth managing phone calls is also possible. Your most recent photos show up, as well as text messages. Android notifications also show up. I like that it's integrated into the OS, and since MS already has plenty of info on me and my hardware, it means my info is going to one less company.

As the other user stated: basically spyware.

  • Can't uninstall from Windows.
  • Forced telemetry.
  • Data routed through MS servers for NO reason at all, even when connected on the same LAN/WiFi.
  • Forced MS account to use this.
  • Data is accessible by MS (zero end-to-end encryption) for absolutely no good reason.

When are we going to learn the lesson: Microsoft is all about money, not user rights or privacy.

It's not FOSS, but unlike KDE connect, this actually works on my windows 10 system.

Microsoft's Phone Link. I first jumped on board when iOS support rolled out to the Windows 11 stable channel. I also used it a bit when I got my Pixel 5 here recently.

Pros:

  • Can sync with both iOS and Android
  • Ability to take calls and send messages on your PC
  • For Android, it shows your battery percentage, cellular strength, Wi-Fi strength (if I recall correctly) and notifications.

Cons:

  • iOS support is VERY limited (partially thanks to Apple). It only really shows you notifications, can send messages, make calls, and shows battery level. Not to mention sending messages can be VERY finicky and receiving messages is just as finicky.
  • Proprietary (I know this is a turn off for some people, especially when it comes to things transmitting sensitive data such as messages, calls, and notifications.)
  • Exclusive to Windows 10 and above; iOS support is exclusive to Windows 11 22H2
  • Requires a Microsoft Account.

Overall; I personally think it's just OK. Especially now when it has some actual competitors in KDE Connect and Intel Unison. If Microsoft ever improves iOS support (somehow) I may revisit it and give it another rating.

Good app, good ui but limited features for non-samung phones. For example you can't sent RCS and launch Android apps.
