Samsung has been a few steps ahead of other smartphone OEMs in software collaboration with platform developers. It has received priority treatment from Google (for Android and Wear OS) and Microsoft (for Windows). To further expand its partnership with Samsung, Microsoft is bringing two new cool features to Windows 11.

The Windows 11’s Phone Link app will soon let Galaxy smartphone users stream music from their phone to their Windows 11 PC or laptop. This sounds a lot like AirPlay or Spotify Connect. Select users have started spotting this feature in the latest version of the Phone Link app. Audio playing back on a Galaxy smartphone can be streamed directly to a Windows computer wirelessly. We still don’t know whether this feature works over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

The second feature Microsoft is bringing to Galaxy users is the ability to continue browsing the webpages from their smartphone to their Windows computer. Via the Phone Link app’s Continuity Browser History feature, a Samsung phone’s Samsung Internet web browsing history will be visible on a Windows PC. It means that users can jump between their Galaxy smartphone and Windows 11 computer and still be able to continue browsing the web from where they left off.

These two features could come to other Android smartphones, but they’re now limited to Samsung smartphones. This is part of the reason why One UI is far ahead of other Android OEM software. The company also has many other continuity features and an ecosystem of apps that make using Galaxy smartphones, Galaxy smartwatches, and Galaxy laptops a breeze.
