New Windows 10 Insider build brings Link to Windows and screen mirroring to more Galaxy devices

Windows Insider is an open software testing program run by Microsoft offering pre-release builds of Windows 10 with new features (and bugs).

A new build came out this week— version 18995 — and it brings to the table multiple Android-related goodies for Samsung owners. Insiders now have the Link to Windows feature on more devices, a screen mirroring feature called Phone screen, and a new paint job for the Your Phone desktop app.

Pixel 4 live wallpapers ported to other phones [APK Download]

Just like the Pixel 3 last year, the Pixel 4 has already been leaked into oblivion, so we have a clear picture of the device's hardware and software more than two weeks prior to the official unveiling.

The latest beta (version 2.19.260) is looking to change that with an option that lets you hide muted stories altogether.
