Microsoft Photos Companion app for Android and iOS devices now available

What Is Photos Companion? Microsoft's iOS App Quickly Transfers Photos To PC

Photos Companion, an experimental app that could help students swiftly transfer media files from device to PC via wifi, is now available for iOS and Android user feedback.

While the app doesn't permanently link to a Windows 10 PC, it's useful if you don't automatically back up your photos to a cloud service.

As we mentioned, your devices need to be on the same Wi-Fi network to let you transfer the content.

According to Microsoft, the "Photo Companion" was created to help kids get images and other content from their multiple devices into one project PC, from which they want to present their multimedia presentation. The main objective of the app as previously reported is to have a direct and easy way of transferring photos and videos from your smartphone to your PC.

Do not you will have to be connected via same WiFi network on your smartphone and Windows 10 device. The photo team has been working on this project for months with the intent for it to work with the Windows 10 built-in photo app.

Microsoft has launched a new app for both Android and iOS today. If you're not seeing the "import from mobile over Wi-Fi" option in the Photos app for Windows 10, you might need to enable the "show additional preview features" option in the settings section of the Photos app for Windows 10. You can edit, customize with ink, and of course share photos with your friends once they're in the Photos app on the PC. The firm also noted that users won't have to worry about network speeds and mobile data charges when they use the new app. You can easily get your required media by accessing your cloud account.

Having said that, it is indeed another step by Microsoft to make its presence felt on mobile devices and is helpful if you'd like to have all your photos and videos under one roof (read the Photos app). It's called Photos Companion and its name is pretty self-explanatory.
