Microsoft has added a much-requested feature to their popular Your Phone remote phone access app on Windows 10.

Up till now, you had to have your phone connected to the same WIFI network to access your photos and text messages.

With version 3.4.8 you can now sync messages, photos and notifications over mobile data, which is perfect for those with large data allowances and would allow users, for example, to sync at work or at a hotel where their phone may not have access to the WIFI network.

The feature is enabled via a toggle in the Settings on the mobile app on your phone.

Especially with access to your text messages and notifications, this feature may be very useful if you want to keep your phone in your bag at work (or even in your car) and still stay in touch.

Join the fun by getting the Your Phone app from the Microsoft Store here.
