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

Microsoft's new photos app for iOS and Android lets you quickly transfer pictures to a PC

The photo-transfer app, dubbed Photos Companion, is purely for sending photos and videos from an Android or iOS device to Microsoft's built-in Photos app on Windows 10.

Microsoft notes that the mobile transfer features are available in the Windows 10 Photos version 2018.18011.13110.0 or higher. The tech giant has launched a new Photos Companion app for iOS and Android devices which has been in testing for some months.

With the help of Photos Companion app on your Android or iOS devices, you just need to scan a code on your Windows 10 Photos app. Moreover, a QR code is also required in the app that helps you start transferring the content.

The new version (8.2) of the Microsoft Store App Developer Agreement updates the tax language for developers in New Zealand and Australia, clarify new GST registration requirements for New Zealand App Developers and updated the Microsoft Subsidiary acting as agent in Australia and New Zealand.

The QR code is used to connect the mobile app with the Photos app on Windows 10. So the Garage and Photos team opted for a Wi-Fi based direct transfer system. You can edit, customize with ink, and of course share photos with your friends once they're in the Photos app on the PC. If you don't see "From mobile over wifi" as an option, go to settings. Previously users would have to resort to methods like USB, Bluetooth, or cloud transfer - the app seems to offer a less tedious, streamlined process for photo sharing. So, the app works as a bridge between a Windows 10 PC and mobile devices. While the app was created for students and educators, it'll likely be useful for anyone who needs to get their media onto a PC without having to find a cable.

If you consider yourself a bit of a smartphone photo enthusiast, you probably understand the appeal of accessing your favorite pictures across all of your devices including your laptop or desktop PC.
