Android notifications come to Windows desktops

Microsoft has rolled out an update that will enable users to see notifications from connected Android devices on their Windows 10 Desktop.
Microsoft's Your Phone is a Windows 10 application that pairs an Android device to your PC. Once paired, users can transfer data between the devices (media files, etc.) and see and reply to messages received on their phones.

With a new update, Your Phone users can now see Android phone notifications mirrored to the Desktop. This would include new messages from apps like WhatsApp or Twitter, for example. If you dismiss the notifications on your Desktop, they are also dismissed on the phone.

In an upcoming update, users will be able to click on the notifications in Windows 10, which will then cause the Your Phone app to mirror the phone's screen to the Desktop and let you you take appropriate actions.

Your Phone is available from the Microsoft Store.

There is no way in 30 green hells that I'd connect my Google account in this specific manner to Windows. I don't trust M$ not to mess it up, that simple.
