Phone screen – Supported devices

We are excited to provide an early preview into the newest feature for the Your Phone app – phone screen. You can now mirror your Android phone’s screen directly on your PC without having to dig for your phone. This article describes the PCs and phones that support this new feature. 

We will continue to expand the list of devices over time for both the PC and phone.

If you do not have a device that currently supports Link to Windows, your PC needs to support Bluetooth with Low Energy Peripheral mode.  Surface Go, Surface Laptop, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 5, Surface Pro 6, Surface Book, and Surface Book 2 with the latest Bluetooth driver updates (Marvell 15.68.17013.110) support this.

How to check if your PC supports Bluetooth Low Energy Peripheral Role 

If you received an error in the app indicating that your PC's Bluetooth isn't compatible, it means that your PC's Bluetooth radio doesn't support the capability needed for phone screen to work.

Here are the steps you can follow to check for the capability yourself:

  1. Make sure Bluetooth is turned on

  2. Open Device Manager by right-clicking on the Start menu.

  3. Select and expand the Bluetooth option.

  4. Select the Radio Driver or Adapter for Bluetooth.  

  5. Double click to open Properties 

  6. Navigate to the Details tab. 

  7. Find the “Bluetooth radio supports Low Energy Peripheral Role” property on the drop-down and select it. 

  8. See if the value is true or false.  

  9. If its “true” then your PC will be able to display your phone screen and interact with it.

Please support OnePlus devices ;), otherwise I am hoping for the best for this app moving forward.

Can someone provide a list of Bluetooth USB dongles that are known to support Bluetooth radio supports Low Energy Peripheral Role?

Side note I think you can also use the Bluetooth LE Explorer from the Windows Store and the Virtual Peripheral option to see if the necessary Bluetooth mode is supported. Its results match what I saw in the Device Manager in that Peripheral mode is not supported on my desktop computer with the current Bluetooth dongle I have. Below is the link if anyone wants to try it out.
