Microsoft is building more features into its Windows 10 Your Phone companion app, with the addition of a basic form of notification management announced today.

Notifications appear in a new section within the app on your desktop or laptop. You can dismiss them, but can’t yet use Quick Reply features.

Besides notifications, the questionably-named-but-very-useful Your Phone app allows you to read and reply to text messages, syncs over your recent photos, and plenty of other useful things.

You’ll need to be running an up to date build of Windows 10, and version 1.19052.657.0 of the app. If the feature isn’t yet available for you, give it a couple of days – they’re at about 50% rollout.

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

It amazes me how long Microsoft are taking to implement basic features that have been present in the ‘Join by joaoapps’ app for so long.

The difference is many people would prefer a Microsoft app rather than some 3rd party app.
