How to Make and Receive Phone Calls in Windows 11

This post describes steps to make and receive phone calls in Windows 11 using Microsoft Phone Link app.

Windows allows users to link their phones to Windows using Microsoft Phone Link app and seamlessly transfer content between their phones and Windows devices.

With the app, users can also access their Android apps installed on your mobile device right on your PC. Using a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection, you will be able to browse, play, order, chat, and more — all while using your PC’s larger screen and keyboard.

Leave your Android device in your pocket the next time it rings — pick up the call from your PC instead. Calling requires Bluetooth capability on both your PC and on your Android device, so make sure you have it turned on for both. 

Below is how to receive and send calls using Windows 11.

How to make a phone call in Windows 11

To make a call on your PC:

Open the Phone Link app and select Calls.

In the Search your contacts box, search for a contact name or number. Alternately, you can directly enter a phone number on the dial pad.

Select the Dial icon to start your call.

If you don’t have Bluetooth available on your device (or if it’s been turned off), you won’t be able to make or receive calls on your PC.

Also, when you start a call on your PC and transfer it to your Android device, you can only mute the call from your phone (but not from your PC).

If a call is in progress on your Android device, you can’t mute that call from your PC.

That should do it!
