Introducing the Enhanced Windows 365 App Experience
Microsoft continues its mission to boost productivity with the introduction of the Enhanced Windows 365 App Experience. This innovation allows users to securely stream their full Windows experience from the Microsoft Cloud to any device, anywhere.
Designed for Android devices, this built-in experience empowers users to harness the capabilities of a full-fledged Windows experience right from their smartphones. This has been made possible through a partnership with Lenovo, and is integrated with the ThinkPhone by Motorola.
“The magic happens when you connect your device to a larger external display using a USB-C or HDMI cable, along with an external keyboard and mouse.”
The Enhanced Windows 365 App Experience is designed to accommodate a wide range of users across different situations and business contexts. It transforms your smartphone into a portable productivity hub, enabling you to work efficiently wherever you are.
Instant Access to Windows 365 Cloud PCs
Once signed into your enterprise account and connected to an external display, a list of cloud PCs appears instantly. You can select your preferred Cloud PC and dive into existing workflows in a one-touch experience.
Immersive Windows Experience
Pair a keyboard and mouse, and dive into an immersive Windows experience, as your device adapts to familiar keyboard gestures, leaving behind the interruptions of Android mobile UI elements.
With the Enhanced Windows 365 App Experience, you can continue to access your favorite applications on your smartphone while working on the Cloud PC on the connected display.
“Whether you need to make calls, send and receive messages, or check your social media feeds, you can do it all without disrupting your work.”
What’s Important to Know
The experience is designed to be frictionless. For a zero-touch experience, enable the “Start automatically” feature found as a setting on the phone. This feature automatically configures your displays for seamless connection to your chosen Cloud PC.
This is a game-changer in mobile productivity, re-imagining how we work and play on the go.
