Though earlier builds of 20H1 disabled Your Phone, it appears to be working perfectly now. As well as image and GIF messaging, Microsoft has been expanding its notifications and mirroring features.

Expanding Feature Support

Insiders without participating phones can still access Your Phone's notification mirroring features.
