You can download the Photos Companion app for iOS or Android right now. It transfers the photo and video files over WiFi making it necessary for both the devices to be on the same network. The new app is available immediately, and it's being released as part of Microsoft's Garage project which lets employees release experimental apps.

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 has released a new app for wirelessly transferring videos and photos from mobile devices to the Windows 10 Microsoft Photos app.

Khan was radicalised and introduced to terrorism when he was studying in a school in his hometown Azamgarh, said the officer. Delhi Police claimed at least 165 people were killed and 535 injured in blasts in which Junaid was suspected to be involved.

However, there is a catch: while the process is essentially instant, it isn't constant.

Microsoft notes that Photos Companion aims to ease the struggle of quickly transferring images between mobile and PC. Restart the Photos app.

The Microsoft Photos Companion app is available for iOS and Android. As such, Garage's latest app could be prone to bugs and general instability so proceed with caution. And although most people already have various ways of importing photos to their computers or clouds, this particular one was created with educational use in mind, as schools often struggle with getting photos that students have taken for projects onto the school's computers. The main goal 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. The app works together with the Photos app in Windows 10 (version 2018.18011.13110.0 and above) and utilizes a feature that's now a part of the Photos app preview program. There you will find a preview option at the end - "Help Microsoft Test the mobile import over WiFI feature". It essentially works as a bridge between a Windows 10 PC and mobile devices.
