Microsoft launches Photos Companion app, enabling rapid smartphone-to-PC image transfers

"Our solution was to build an app that would support direct wireless transfer between any phone or mobile device and the Photos app on any Windows 10 PC".

Unfortunately, unless you already use a cloud backup service such as Microsoft's OneDrive or Google Drive, manually transferring images to your main PC can be an inconvenient and lengthy process - especially if your photos already take up a sizable portion of your mobile device's storage space.

You can transfer the photos and videos to the Photos app on your PC and then edit and enhance it or customize using ink, and then share it with your friends and loved ones.

Do not you will have to be connected via same WiFi network on your smartphone and Windows 10 device. Now, open the Photos app and then select Import From mobile over Wi-Fi. "The biggest hurdle many classrooms faced was getting the content students had captured with their phones onto their project PCs", explains Microsoft's photos team. 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. As we mentioned, your devices need to be on the same Wi-Fi network to let you successfully transfer content. "This would enable students to transfer media to their own computers or to a shared, project PC without worrying about network speeds or mobile data charges", the Microsoft Garage team explains. This app is available for both iOS and Android Users. You can easily get your required media by accessing your cloud account.

Under Preview, turn on the toggle button that says "Help Microsoft test the mobile import over WiFi feature". 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.
