Windows updated itself this morning. Everything seems to be OK so far.

I have installed the new Your Phone app which links my PC and my smartphone. I can now send and receive phone text messages on my PC.
Does that work with iOS devices like the iPhone?
Yes, but so far there is more functionality with Android phones.

If you have a Google Account (Gmail), you can do the same if you use Google Hangouts as your messaging app. I find it very useful to send/receive desks on my desktop while I'm at work.

Yes, I have used Hangouts with a Google Voice number but not with my cell phone number.
