It is now possible to download and install Intel Unison on Windows 11 and connect your favorite Android or iPhone to sync SMS, contacts, photos and more.
Our computing devices are connected and juggling between multiple devices such as PCs, laptops and phones is the norm. Fortunately, there are several official and third-party apps or services to link all your devices together, making the transition from one to the other seamless.
Microsoft’s Phone Link app lets you connect your Android phone to a Windows 11 or Windows 10 device with just a few taps here and there. You can seamlessly move SMS chat from phone to PC and back again without accessing the phone.
The best way to do this is Microsoft’s Phone Link, but there’s a catch: Phone Link works with Android phones and most of the features are only available for the Samsung Galaxy series. If you’re wondering if there’s another better app to connect iPhone or Android to Windows 11, we’ve got some good news for you.
Intel’s Unison is now available for all Windows 11 PCs. With Intel Unison, you can easily connect your phone and PC together.
What is Intel Unison?
Intel announced its Unison project with the release of the 13th generation of desktop CPUs, and it is officially exclusive to Intel CPUs, but it can be installed on any hardware.
So, what is Intel Unison? In its simplest form, Intel Unison is the chipmaker’s alternative to Microsoft’s Phone Link. While Microsoft’s implementation is more advanced, especially when connected to a Galaxy phone, Intel Unison is new and only covers the primary features like Messages or Photos.
With Intel Unison, you can send and receive text messages, manage voice calls, manage notifications, transfer files and photos between your PC and your iPhone or Android phone.
