Does not communicate well with Pixel 7 pro. Not able to link to phone calls. Poorly designed app, great potential, but needs a lot of work! Response to comment: This is with a new Dell XPS 13 Plus, Bluetooth is on for both devices. When I click Open Phone to set up Calls, Photos etc, it triggers a Open or Dismiss on my Pixel 7 Pro. When selecting Open, the App does not open. Open it manually, no options to change anything. Also tried manually to have bluetooth in discovery mode, but no..

Does your PC have Bluetooth support? Is your PC updated to Windows 10 May 2019 update or newer? Please take a look at our support site for the latest Setting up calls instructions: or for additional troubleshooting information. If issues, submit your feedback within the app.

This is the most frustrating thing to set up. Just got the new Surface 9 and when trying to sync via QR code it just sends me to the Play Store to download an app I already have. Tried to do it manually with a code but the Surface gives me an alph numeric code while the app will ONLY EXCEPT NUMBERS. Who wrote this? I couldn't even cut and paste lthe letters into it. The app says its up to date and the Surface 9 is brand new. This should not be this frustrating.

Make sure the Your Phone Link on PC and Link to Windows on Android is updated to the latest version, your devices are on the same Wi-Fi and sign in with the same account to ensure the most reliable connection. Is Battery saver running on your devices? If issues, submit your feedback in the app

What is the point of this app if I have to have my phone screen turned on which means it pretty much has to be in my hands... I should be able to use this without ever touching my phone as long as they are both on the same network! Also why do the names of the contacts not show up (only the phone numbers) This is basically nothing more than a paperweight until you fix all the issues!
