Microsoft Photos Companion app launched

The app is aimed at making it easy for Windows 10 users to transfer their photos and videos from mobiles to their Windows 10 desktop. It works between your smartphone that installed the app and the Microsoft Photos app on your Windows 10 PC.

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

Microsoft notes that the mobile transfer features are available in the Windows 10 Photos version 2018.18011.13110.0 or higher. Moreover, a QR code is also required in the app that helps you start transferring the content.

The company says Photos Companion will come in handy for students who do not back up the photos they take to a cloud storage such as its very own OneDrive.

As nice as Microsoft's latest app sounds, as previously noted, Photos Companion is the product of the company's Garage branch which is dedicated to testing and releasing experimental apps and services.

The app is developed as a part of the Microsoft Garage project. After that, you need to point the scanner available on the Photos Companion app at the QR code to begin the transfer. If you're not seeing the "import from mobile over Wi-Fi" option in the Photos app for Windows 10, you might need to enable the "show additional preview features" option in the settings section of the Photos app for Windows 10. However, the app seems important for students and educators. Launch the Photos Companion app on your phone, choose "Send Photos", and scan the QR code.

However, if you want to stall the Microsoft Photos app from updating to the old version, there's a few ways.
