Except updated Bing search on the taskbar, in the latest build of Windows 11, Microsoft also updated Phone Link, through which you can now send iMessages using your iPhone.
What is known
The Phone Link app allows iPhone owners to connect their smartphones to a Windows PC to sync data, and as of yesterday, now also send messages via iMessage, make and receive calls and view notifications right on the PC.
But there are also certain limitations. Since the function works via Bluetooth, you will not be able to send images or participate in group conversations. All chats with iMessage on PC will be displayed in a slightly simplified way.
“We send messages via Bluetooth, and Apple sends them as iMessages, I think,” explains Yusuf Mehdi, head of Microsoft’s consumer division.
You will also not be able to see the history of chat messages, as messages that were sent using Phone Link will be displayed. The program will also not use the blue and green message bubbles, as it will not be able to distinguish where the message was sent from.
The updated version of Phone Link will be available to Windows Insiders in the Dev, Beta, and Release Preview channels later this week.
