Windows Insiders can now use select Samsung phones to run multiple Android apps on Windows 10 simultaneously. The new functionality is rolling out gradually and could take “a few days to be enabled,” according to Analy Otero Diaz, principal program manager lead at Microsoft. The feature expands on Your Phone’s Android app support, which currently allows people to run a single Android app on Windows 10 from a supported phone.
A screenshot of the new feature was shard by Romi Koifman, senior product manager, Microsoft. Koifman shows off four Android apps running on Windows 10 at once in a screenshot.
Koifman and Diaz did not share a complete list of all phones that support the new feature but clarified that only “select Samsung devices” can use it. The list of supported phones is likely similar to those that support running a single Android app on Windows 10.
We’ve reached out to see if this feature will roll out to the Surface Duo and will update this post with any new information we receive about supported devices.
Update, November 6 (12:00 pm ET): Vishnu Nath, partner director of PM for Microsoft Mobile, has now confirmed that this feature isn’t available for Surface Duo at this time.
