Your Phone app is developed by Microsoft for Windows 10 so that it can be connected to Android devices. With the help of this app, not only music but also phone calls and photos present in the phone can be accessed on the computer.

Regarding the system in which this feature will be supported, Microsoft has made it clear that this feature will be available only in those computers which are updated after Windows 10 October 2018. Apart from this, your Android phone should work on Android 7 Nougat or above version.
