Photos Companion, a Microsoft Garage project, is an easy way to move photos and videos from your phone to Microsoft Photos on your PC.
Photos Companion works with Microsoft Photos on your Windows 10 PC to directly transfer photos and videos from phone to PC over Wi-Fi. Just make sure your phone and PC are on the same Wi-Fi network, then scan a code and start the transfer.

Has potential, bugs and all, but it is just a prototype.


I appreciate the ease of this app, bringing the gap from iOS to PC in terms of photo sharing and bypassing DropBox or anything like that. My issue is that I keep getting this error saying that my phone and the PC need to be on the same WiFi Network. They both are on the same network but the notification persists, which makes me unable to share anything at all. I’ve tried switching networks, closing/opening the app, to no avail. Of course, it’s just a test for mobile import, and I do hope the future, official release is polished.

Too Bad - Needs Work...


This app will download some pictures and some video clips but not others from my iPhone 6S (running on iOS 10.3) onto my Dell Windows 10 pc (updated to latest OS version) . For example, out of 220 snapshots and vids, Only some 25% would transfer after multiple attempts. I followed the instructions to the letter... too bad :-(
Developers: let me know if you update this interesting app so I can do more of *your* quality control in *my* living-room. I sincerely would like to regularly use this app for backup since I favor local storage over the cloud...

Finally a fast, direct way to move photos from the iPhone to a PC

Missing my tabs

Works well for me. Only one feature missing to be perfect: the ability to actually take a picture in the first place, in addition to choosing one from that photo roll. Would save having to switch apps and then be totally direct and quick
