As far as smartphone keyboards have come in design, you still can't beat the feel of a full-size PC or laptop keyboard when it comes to typing. I can punch out an email a lot quicker than I can compose a text message and that will likely always be the case. If you have an Android phone and a Windows 10 PC or laptop, you'll soon be able to send and receive texts through your computer.

Your Phone, a feature that's currently rolling out to Windows Insiders, lets you not only use your computer to read text messages that get sent to your phone, but you can create and send new ones from your computer as well. They first showed off this feature at Microsoft Build in May and today they announced that it's getting sent out to a limited section of the public.



Of course, Apple users have been able to do this for a while, using iMessage on both their iPhone and Mac, and Google has their Messages for Web service. There are also a few third-party services that do the same. Your Phone, however, acts as more of a central hub for operating your phone through your Windows 10 PC, and it's not unlikely that Microsoft will build on that platform and find more ways for you to interact with your mobile device through your computer. All-in-one solutions have been a focus of the industry for a few years now and this falls firmly into that category.
