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


Another drawback is that the app works oneway, i.e., you can only transfer photos from Android and iOS to Windows 10, vice-versa isn't possible.

The transfer service is based around QR codes and Wi-Fi and works so long as the Windows 10 PC is on the same network as the Android or iOS device you want to move photos or videos from.

Last week, Fast Ring Insiders discovered a brand new version of the Photos app for mobile, with a layout that looked very similar to the PC version. 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 notes that the mobile transfer features are available in the Windows 10 Photos version 2018.18011.13110.0 or higher. As we mentioned, your devices need to be on the same Wi-Fi network to let you successfully transfer content. Because, before the launch of the app in 2017, the app product team has conducted visits to the various European and United States classrooms to see how teachers shared the content which is in their mobile device to the classroom PC, and to encourage them to use the app for this objective. After scanning the code successfully you need to select the media type you to transfer to the PC.

First of all, download the Photos Companion app from Play Store or App Store.

It is to be noted that you already have the option to back up your photos and videos to a cloud service, such as Google Drive, iCloud, or even Microsoft's OneDrive.

Microsoft's Garage team says, "Who is looking to complete an epic video project, send media to a friend's PC, or just get that one special photo onto their computer so it can be edited and turned into the next great post, cover photo, or presentation".

Microsoft has launched a new app for both Android and iOS today.
