To use the service, you need to connect your Windows 11 PC or laptop to your Android 14 smartphone via the Phone Link app. To do this, visit Copilot web (copilot.microsoft.com) on your web browser, open the Copilot hamburger menu, click “Plugins” and turn on “Phone Link”.

Once activated, you can ask Copilot to show you recent text messages from your Android smartphone. It will instantly fetch the latest text messages from your Android device in about a minute due to the different connection steps.

Currently, this new feature is in beta phase and is only available to those who have enrolled in the Copilot beta program. There is no timeline on when this feature will be rolled out to the general public.
