Link to Windows: What does that mean?

To ensure shared, synced content, there is a high-level connectivity with Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud service. This will mean a nearly quick and seamless transition as we go from 4G to 5G.
  • For instance, PC users presently have to pause their work in order to glance at their phones, answer calls, use apps, and send photos, movies, or other files to their PCs.
  • Instead, they desire a world in which content automatically syncs, allowing them to begin a project on one device and continue it on another without interruptions.


  • Make and take calls using your computer.
  • On your computer, control the notifications on your Android phone.
  • Use your PC to access your preferred mobile apps.
