Microsoft has launched a new app for both Android and iOS users. It’s called Photos Companion and its name is pretty self-explanatory. The app is designed to help you transfer the photos you have on your phone to your Windows 10 PC with ease. They will then be available in the Windows 10 Photos app.
How To Use The Photos Companion?
To use the Microsoft Photos Companion app, after installing it from the iOS App Store or the Google Play Store, all you need is to scan the QR code shown in the Windows Photos app. You can download the update of Windows Photos app from the Microsoft Store for you to this required functionality.
The moment you ‘pair’ your phone with the Windows 10 Photos app through that barcode scan, you will able to batch send multiple photos to the PC over the same Wi-Fi network. The pairing is different from that of Bluetooth which is permanent. The pairing is just temporary for that moment. So, you will have to be doing that every time you want to transfer something over, but that’s not difficult at all.
Uses Of Photos Companion
You can edit, customize with ink, and of course share photos with your friends once they’re in the Photos app on the PC. Interestingly, you can start a video project in Windows Photos, and then directly add images and videos into it from your phone.
