When you're working on a video project in your Photos app on your PC, you can also directly add media from your smartphone directly into the project through the Photos Companion app. While ARM versions are still compiled for the apps, they are either developed with new APIs which aren't supported by Windows 10 Mobile, or they aren't being optimized anymore for Mobile. This app is available for both iOS and Android Users.

Photos Companion uses Wi-Fi to create a connection and transfer the photos and videos from one device to another with a QR code.

With the help of Photos Companion app on your Android or iOS devices, you just need to scan a code on your Windows 10 Photos app.

Microsoft has finally launched another app for Android and iOS as a part of its Garage project. Anyway, Windows Insiders who keep their Windows phones on the Fast Ring should continue to get early access to app updates, and we'll continue to keep an eye on the OS this year. It essentially works as a bridge between a Windows 10 PC and mobile devices. If you don't see "From mobile over wifi" as an option, go to settings.




Having said that, it is indeed another step by Microsoft to make its presence felt on mobile devices and is helpful if you'd like to have all your photos and videos under one roof (read the Photos app).

Depending on the number and size of the photos and videos, the transfer process could take a few seconds to minutes. Also, it can help you save on your data bills.

However, there are a couple of downsides. The app works by temporarily linking (via QR code) to the Windows 10 photos app. So, for some users, the app might not be their cup of tea. It seems that Microsoft may have pushed this update to Insiders by mistake, as a new update for the Photos app (version 2018.18011.13438.0) brings back the familiar mobile layout today.
