    Bluetooth. You just pair as you do right now with the auto lock/unlock when you have your phone. Nice addition and maybe we'll see lots more integration between the desktop and the phone in the future.

    Nice. Just curious, how is this different/superior to using the Cortona method? I never use the app on my phone, but it can be set to forward notifications, messages, calls, etc.

    Currently using Pushbullet, but if MS is rolling out a superior method I'll keep an eye out for it.

    Love Windows 10 on my HP Spectre x360 15in. Selling my MBPtb 13in was on of the better choices I have made this year (nothing against the MBP, and people who use it).

    Nice, unfortunately I have an iPhone, sigh. Microsoft is really doing some awesome things these past few years, especially this year.

    Well that sucks. I have a custom rig that has no Bluetooth chip in it. Looks like I'm gonna have to buy a USB adapter.

    Any idea when this might be rolled out in the standard release?

    As a Win10 user, let me know when you can receive/make calls and texts on the pc. This is baby step, at this rate it will be years

    There's been many different ways to accomplish this since Windows 7.
