Microsoft launches Photos Companion app for Android and iOS

Photos Companion - Microsoft Garage
"While we built the Photos Companion with students and educators in mind, we know it will be useful to anyone who is looking to complete an epic video project, send media to a friend's PC, or just get that one special photo onto their computer so it can be edited and turned into the next great post, cover photo, or presentation", according to a Microsoft post. Click "Import" then "From mobile over Wi-Fi", which then presents a QR that the user scans, finally select the photos or videos for transfer and voila! The new app is available immediately, and it's being released as part of Microsoft'sGarage project which lets employees release experimental apps.
A few days ago Windows 10 Mobile Insiders got a new update for the Microsoft Photos app.
If you're a OneDrive user or you already backup phone photos to another cloud service, this new app probably isn't for you, but Microsoft has primarily designed this for students.
Microsoft launches Photos Companion app, enabling rapid smartphone-to-PC image transfers
However, there is a catch: while the process is essentially instant, it isn't constant.
Considering that Windows 10 Mobile is now in maintenance mode, it was very surprising to see such a big update for the Photos app last week. 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. It looks like that day is here now as they have officially brought the Photos Companion app to the Google Play Store. The Microsoft Photos app is a prime example of the latter.
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). 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. For instance, you have to scan the QR code every time you want to sync your photos.
