Users can now enjoy a seamless browsing experience between Galaxy smartphones and the Galaxy Book series

As part of Samsung’s ongoing efforts to improve connectivity between computers and mobile devices, Microsoft Phone Link’s new “Recent Websites” feature is now available on Galaxy smartphones and the Galaxy Book series.

Connected devices increase productivity and convenience, but the limits of connectivity can always be pushed. According to a recent Samsung survey[1], 77% of people use multiple apps and devices for the same task, but they also find it tedious. With this in mind, Samsung Electronics is always looking for new ways to deliver a connected experience that harmonizes the strengths and capabilities of its smartphones, computers, tablets, watches and more for a truly seamless multi-device ecosystem.

One of these new connectivity features is Recent Websites.[2] (an update to the Microsoft Phone Link app[3] now available across the entire Galaxy Book range), which allows users to continue their browsing sessions on their computer. This feature, which allows you to go from a phone to a Galaxy Book, makes browsing experiences more fluid and mobile, and ensures users optimal productivity.

Galaxy Book users can now find recent sessions on their smartphone with just one click, saving them the hassle of browsing across multiple devices and providing convenient and responsive browsing. For example, suppose a user opens multiple tabs to search her phone. At some point, it might be more efficient to open those same tabs on a bigger screen to work with PC apps. Thanks to the Recent Websites feature, this task is now possible and allows users to open new tabs without having to go back to check search terms or browsing histories.

To use Recent Websites, simply link your Galaxy smartphone to the Galaxy Book via the Windows Link app on your phone and the Microsoft Phone Link app on your computer. Then open the Microsoft Phone Link app or context menu on your computer, which will display a list of websites you’ve recently opened on your smartphone. Clicking on any of these websites will open it directly on your Galaxy Book.

Recent Websites is one of many new connectivity features that make the connected experience between Galaxy smartphones and the Galaxy Book line richer and more flexible. By opening up incredible possibilities for devices, Samsung enables customers to use and combine their devices in more innovative and accessible ways. Stay tuned for the next Galaxy reveal to learn more about Samsung’s efforts to promote multi-device connectivity across the Galaxy Book line and beyond.

Windows Link is pre-installed on some Samsung Galaxy devices. The computer (Phone Link app) must be running Windows 10 or later. The Microsoft Phone Link app requires the Samsung Galaxy device to be turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the PC. Some mobile apps may restrict content from sharing on other screens. Some related functions may vary depending on the device.
