Photos Companion - Microsoft Garage

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

When you're working on a video project in your Photos app on your PC, you can also directly add media from your smartphone directly into the project through the Photos Companion app. Called Photos Companion, the app makes it easy for users to transfer photos from their iOS devices to their PCs.

Photos Companion sends photos and videos wirelessly from an Android or iOS device to Microsoft's built-in Photos app on Windows 10.

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.

This is a frustration Microsoft understands well if the company's latest experimental Garage program project is anything to go by.

Last year Microsoft staff visited classrooms in the U.S. and Europe to ask teachers to try its Windows 10 Photos app. Anyway, Windows Insiders who keep their Windows phones on the Fast Ring should continue to get early access to app updates, and we'll continue to keep an eye on the OS this year. 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. Once installed, the app is supposed to directly transfer photos and videos from phone to PC over Wifi.

Click Done to start the transfer. 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. Plus, it eliminates the requirement of using the same Wi-Fi network on the mobile device and PC to transfer content that is mandatory with the Photos Companion app. So, for some users, the app might not be their cup of tea.

With the Photos Companion app on your iOS or Android phone, you just scan a code on your Windows 10 Photos app, then select the media you want to transfer.
