The Your Phone app that lets Android smartphones connect to Windows — a centerpiece of the new alliance with Samsung and the Galaxy Note10 — is down.
This morning, Microsoft noted on a service outage page that “users may experience connection problems and errors when using the Your Phone app.”
“We’ve identified an issue causing connection problems for the Your Phone app,” Microsoft wrote. “Users may receive ‘Can’t connect’ or other error banners when using the app. We’re actively investigating to identify the cause of the problem and develop a remediation plan.”
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella showed up at a Samsung event earlier this month to talk about the new Note10. The Verge reported that the Note10 has “more Microsoft in it than any other Android phone,” including the Your Phone app, which lets users easily view phone pictures, make calls and browse the smartphone interface all from the PC. The announcement even got GeekWire co-founder Todd Bishop to switch over to Android.
