New Photos Companion App Coming from Microsoft

Both Android and iOS will have the new Photos Companion app coming very soon. This new app will allow you to quickly transfer your photos from your mobile device to your Windows PC. You will no longer have to rely on iTunes if you are trying to transfer your photos to your computer. We know that it is also difficult to get your photos from your Android device to your Windows PC.

If you are looking for a rapid option, that is where the new Microsoft Photos Companion app will come into play.

As long as you have a Windows laptop or PC, you will be able to utilize the new Photos Companion app. This is something that is already available using the OneDrive app from Microsoft, so you might have already noticed the feature.

We have told you many times about how Microsoft is focusing on both iOS and Android now. The Windows phone has basically been discontinued, and support has been dropped by Microsoft itself. Microsoft has finally realized that both iOS and Android are going to maintain status as the biggest operating systems in the mobile world. Given that information, Microsoft has been focused on making better apps for both iOS and Android.

Microsoft has been making Microsoft apps for these two operating systems better. The new Photos Companion app is just the latest app that Microsoft has developed. For Microsoft, the main focus of the apps are to increase productivity for those who are on either iOS or Android. We will keep you updated with the status of the Photos Companion app. This app hopefully will officially launch before the end of the year. If you are part of the tester program, you likely will see this app pushed out for testing within the next week.
