Recently, we exclusively reported that Microsoft will be bringing notification syncing between Windows 10 Mobile and PC sometime very soon. Today, the company released a new Windows 10 Mobile build which brings notification syncing between Windows 10 Mobile and PC. For example, if you get a notification from Twitter on your Windows 10 Mobile, it will show up on your Windows 10 PC almost instantly if you have notification syncing enabled. Additionally, if an app supports quick reply or has quick actions, you should also be able to interact with those features from your Windows 10 PC as well.

For this feature to work, Insiders will need to run the latest build of Windows 10 Insider Preview on their PCs as well. Microsoft stated:

Cortana will now surface your phone notifications and critical alerts, including messages from messaging services, SMS or social media as well as missed calls from any Windows 10 phone or Android device to your PC, so you never miss a beat while staying focused on your PC.

To enable this feature, just navigate to Cortana’s Settings and click on Edit Sync Notifications. It is worth noting that this feature is still under development, and it may not work smoothly just yet. However, with the upcoming builds, Microsoft will improve this feature.
