This article explains how to enable or disable sending, receiving, and downloading MMS attachments in the Phone Link app on Windows 11.
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.
With your phone connected to your PC, you can choose how to display notifications, choose to hear audio from the PC or phone, turn allow the phone link app to sync over mobile without Wi-Fi on or off, unlink your phone from Windows, enable or disable auto startup for the phone link app, send and receive text messages from the app, add or remove Phone Link on the widgets board, turn dark mode on or off, open your phone screen in the app, turn show notifications for all my apps on or off, show notifications in the Phone Link feature feed, enable or disable using Phone Link with Windows suggestions, open Phone Link notification banners in the mobile app or Phone Link, enable or disable showing text messages, and more.
When you turn showing text messages on in the Phone Link app, you can further customize the settings by allowing MMS attachments to be received in messages.
MMS attachments can be large, meaning that sending, receiving, and downloading them can use significant data. Allowing or disallowing MMS attachments in Phone Link can help you control your data usage and avoid additional charges from your mobile carrier.
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.
Allow sending and receiving MMS attachments in Phone Link
As mentioned above, users can turn on or off, allowing MMS attachments from their mobile devices in the Phone Link app.
Here’s how to do it.
First, open the Phone Link app.
Then, choose to add your phone. If phones are connected to the Phone Link app, click the Settings button (gear) at the top right corner and select Features on the menu.
On the right of the Features settings page, under Messages, select the tiles below:
- Allow PHone Link to send MMS attachments from my mobile device.
- Allow Phone Link to receive MMS attachments from my mobile device.
- Automatically download MMS attachments from my mobile device.
Then, toggle the switch button to the On position to enable it. To disable it, toggle the switch button to the Off position.
Note: You won’t be able to change this setting without first showing text messages from my mobile device.
That should do it.
