Part of this is Timeline, a feature in Windows 10 that gives you a snapshot of everything you did on your PC in reverse chronological order. For example, you can return to a document or join a photo editing program that you worked on two days earlier.

The next release of Windows 10 will be the next step in the integration puzzles, an inbox app that will allow you to access photos, text messages, notifications, and other important workloads on your PC over time. said Microsoft General Manager Shilpa Ranganatha.
When you send a text message to your phone, it is mirrored on your Windows PC screen. You can reply inline or open the inbox app and reply from there. For photos, you can see the last 25 photos on your phone on your PC and open and edit them in the Photos app and save them to your desktop.
Similarly, you can view a list of recent notifications, click them, and be redirected to an associated Windows app or website. However, like Timeline, this integration relies on information that Microsoft Graph has about you and your devices. Ranganatha asked the developers in the room to integrate Graph into their apps.
Ranganatha says that despite the new features, users retain control and data is only exchanged between devices and not synchronized with the cloud.
