I dont like see that the support is included into Microsoft Apps but totaly aggre the support can be in this apps but its should be included into Microsoft Launcher, or into microsoft authenticator for Android should make more sens. 

Not everybody gonna wanna use Microsoft Launcher, and in that case 2 Auth apps frome Microsoft would make more sens is stronger that Google Auth apps support more styles, so that should be options for it. 

And some people use Microsoft Launcher and 
microsoft authenticator so mabye here should just microsoft authenticator be bettre. 

But WhataMicrosoft apps ? Its dosent do a its just a pointless apps some only show Microsoft own apps and in Sweden is even show Cortana even if the apps is not possibol install frome store, and all microsoft apps i have World, Excel, Launcher am just downloads it direclty frome the store. 

Why would i ever in my life wanna have Microsoft Apps installed? Is just wortless app some take space in the phone. 
 Am relly trying hard to minimaz how many apps i have in my phone, my phone should only carring apps some i use reglery every day, i dont just want installs apps just for have so many apps as possibol in my phone, i think with many apps its just take longre time navigate true the apps i want and need and see in my face. 

Microsoft Apps can have access for people some dont want to use Microsoft Launcher or Microsoft Auth, but include the support for both this as well so people some dont want to use Microsoft Apps can just skipp install wortless app.

Feedback hub dosent support Android apps? this type of connection is any android issues. Would well be weird if changes of android apps start to be added to feedback hub atlest when Microsoft apps for phones dosent support any area in the feedback hub. 

There is a "Your Phone" section in Feedback Hub, under "Apps". Should be enough to fill a feedback.

Moreover, 

I dont like see that the support is included into Microsoft Apps but totaly aggre the support can be in this apps but its should be included into Microsoft Launcher, or into microsoft authenticator for Android should make more sens.

Not everyone is using "Launcher". If "Your Phone" is integrated there, I cannot use it, as I am not going to install "Launcher" on my phone. "Your Phone" should be an independent app, unconnected to any other MS Android app. 

Is why the function should be included into like Launcher and like Microsoft Auth should work as well, and mabye the Microsoft Apps in that case the people some dont use the Luancher or the Auth app they can just use the Microsoft Apps in that case, but for people some use other apps should not be force to use a worttless apps is why is welcome to see the include into more apps so people have a choose what apps they want to use for have the connection. 

Hi - 

I am still stuck at the call us overprotective screen.  A notification opens on my Essential phone from Microsoft apps that says "Connecting to your PC" and nothing happens from there.  There is a yellow caution on the top of the your phone screen on the PC that says "We can't connect to your phone"  During the setup portion, it did say for a moment to connect to Wifi to share your photos.  My phone does show up in the settings screen for phone and on the devices web page.  I have reset everything through all of the steps above and no progress has been made.

Is there some sort of notification that is supposed to popup on the phone other than the connecting?

Randy
