The Phone Link app is a feature on Windows that allows you to link your phone and PC using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and access your phone’s apps and data from your PC. It lets you browse, play, order, chat, and more using your PC’s larger screen and keyboard while your phone stays in your pocket or desk.

Additionally, enabling MMS attachments can be useful if you need to send or receive multimedia messages, such as photos or videos, through the app. It ultimately comes down to your personal preference and data usage needs.
