Microsoft has continued to add features to their Your Phone app, which connects your phone and your desktop and allows you to operate your phone from your PC without touching it.
Today Microsoft announced the general availability of the phone calling feature for the app, meaning you can make and receive calls on your PC, redirected from your phone.
Thank you #WindowsInsiders for your feedback over the last couple of months. Today, we're pleased to announce the general availability of the #YourPhone app Calls feature, which allows you to receive and make phone calls on your PC: https://t.co/m47kLcXgbS pic.twitter.com/4GuIOXjR71

We first reported in March that the Your Phone app for Windows 10 will be able to make and receive phone calls on the desktop, routed from your Android phone and in September had some more information on the feature.
The Your Phone app is available for all iOS and Android handsets but is most prominently featured on high-end Android handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 via the Link to Windows feature.
Microsoft most recently added an improved phone gallery feature to the app, support for using the touch screen on your PC to interact with your phone, dual-SIM support, better notification support, and features such as transmitting your battery status and wallpaper to your PC and support for pen input.
Like most features, it is likely only available for Insiders now, but should roll out to general users eventually.
If you have not installed the Your Phone app, you can find it in the Store here.
