Yeah, when it works Your Phone is amazing. When it doesn't, it's the biggest piece of excrement. I had something similar when I changed PCs. Just could not for the life of me get the phone to connect (Pixel 4).

 

In order to get it to work, I went into Windows settings and cleared the data and cache for the Your Phone app. Then, completely removed the companion app from my phone. Then, went into my Microsoft account settings online and deauthorized my devices. Then, open the companion app on my phone, and finally opened the app on Windows and followed the initial setup procedure.

I found that your phone app doesn't work on my phone either (Samsung Galaxy A40) but I just use things like whatsapp for windows 10 and bluetooth which basically does most of the your phone functionality apart from notifications.

Everything Chris said is accurate I would only add one extra step, on Windows go to Settings > Phone and click "Unlink this PC". You should be able to restart the pairing process. Worked for me every time.


Still rocking that i7-3700k alongside a 2060 Super-Loud
