Windows Working on a Photo Companion App for Android and iOS

December 6, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Microsoft has been constantly offering services to get their smartphone devices synced with Windows 10. While most of them revolved around Windows apps and services, there have been a few good offerings that have came out of that parameter. One such service is about to be deployed by Microsoft.

According to a recent spotting, Microsoft is all set to launch a new companion app for the Photos app on Windows 10 that will be made available for both Android and iOS devices. The app will reportedly help users quickly transfer their photos from the smartphones to a Window PC using paired Wi-Fi network.

Using the common Wi-Fi network, users can get their photos transferred by just scanning a QR code emerging on the desktop screen. Doing so will trigger the wireless transfer instantly, making the process hassle-free for users.

The app is yet to be unveiled by Microsoft. It can also be expected that the feature will be initially made available for Windows Insiders for testing ahead of any public launch. Meanwhile, users can get their OneDrive to sync the photos captured on smartphones with their Windows 10 PCs.

In addition to the new feature, Microsoft is also said to be improving the overall experience of the Photos app in Windows 10. Premium contents including special effects, themes, and music will be introduced alongside stickers, which can be used on photos to create new stories. The features will be making way to Windows 10 Insider builds in the coming months.
