Support Windows Phones (8.1 & 10)
In the MS world, Disply Link support is good when running Windows on a laptop or a tablet. When it comes to Windows phones. it is the opposite: nothing, nada.
Ask Microsoft, They are so in need of trendy feature to boost their market share in mobile phone business, I am ready to bet they would finance the development.
This would be excellent with continuum. I've been trying to make Continuum for phones an actual thing but the only time I would use it is its already set up on a desk, if DisplayLink was available I would be able to set up my work station easily, like a laptop.
Hello, that's correct. This won't work until we have access to the pixels. Our driver need to do a bit more than just be a USB device. Windows Phone also has additional restrictions compared to the full blown OS... but at a minimum, we need to get access to the pixels before we can think about packaging them through USB. That will require an OS change so please make sure to also flag your interest to Microsoft.

I have both, a new Lumia 950, a displaylink enabled monitor, it would still not work.
Supporting Windows 10 Mobile would be great as it supports continuum.

Contrary to Oscar's post, newer Windows Phone 10 devices that support Continuum do have USB host capabilities. It would be awesome to have a portable USB monitor that I could hook up to the phone when on the go.

the problem is windows phones don't currently support usb host. granted some new windows phones might but currently none do. so no point.

Totally agree. Seem like a no brainer.
