During the initial setup process of the Your Phone Companion app on your Android device, there are a few permissions you have to grant for the phone call feature.
First, tap “Allow” to grant the app permission to make and manage phone calls.
You also have to grant it access to your contacts so you can access them on your PC.
It’s also important that you allow the Android app to run in the background. This ensures a stable connection between your phone and PC.
After the setup process is complete on your Android device, you can move to the Windows app to finish setting up the phone call feature.
First, navigate to the “Calls” tab, and then click “Get Started.”
A pop-up containing a Bluetooth PIN will appear on your PC.
A pop-up containing the same PIN should also appear on your Android device. Make sure the codes match, and then click “Yes” on your PC and tap “Pair” on your Android device.
It’s possible to use the feature immediately, but you’ll only be able to dial numbers. To show your call log, you have to grant permission on your phone; click “Send Permission” to proceed.
A notification will appear on your Android device; tap “Open” to launch the permission dialog.
Tap “Allow” in the permission pop-up. If you don’t see a pop-up, you can manually grant permission. To do so, go to Settings > Apps & Notifications > See All Apps > Your Phone Companion > Permissions, and then select “Allow” under “Call Logs Access for This App.”
Your recent calls will now show up in the Your Phone app on Windows 10. To make a call from your PC, you can select a recent call and click the phone icon, search for contacts, or use the dial pad.
When you receive a phone call, a notification will appear on your PC, and you can click “Accept” or “Decline.”
That’s all there is to it! You can now make and receive phone calls from your PC—no video call or third-party service required.
