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

To bring the QR code on your Windows 10 PC's screen, you need to open the Photos app and then select Import From mobile over Wi-Fi.

Microsoft went on to say that Photos Companion is primarily created to facilitate direct wireless transfer of content between phones or mobile devices and the Photos app for Windows 10 PCs.

Have you been facing issue while transferring your photos to your Windows PC? Because, before the launch of the app in 2017, the app product team has conducted visits to the various European and USA 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 goal.

Considering that Windows 10 Mobile is now in maintenance mode, it was very surprising to see such a big update for the Photos app last week. This experimental app is available for Android and iOS devices. Moreover, a QR code is also required in the app that helps you start transferring the content. For instance, you have to scan the QR code every time you want to sync your photos. You can then effortlessly transfer the photos and even videos off your phone and into the Photos app's camera roll.

While anyone can download the Photo Companion app, developers at Microsoft Garage and Photos teams built the app with classrooms that rely on Windows 10 in mind.

The previous update made the Photos app nearly a truly universal app, though some advanced features such as Story Remix were missing on mobile.

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". Your devices need to be on the same Wi-Fi network to enable the transfer process.

The app is available for both Android and iOS devices.
