Microsoft releases Photos Companion app for Android and iOS

Microsoft has released a new app called Photos Companion, which allows you to upload photos and videos from your Android or Apple device straight to your computer. This is done through your home’s wifi connection and therefore doesn’t use any cellular data.

This is a better method of transferring photos and videos from phone to computer for many people, because it does not upload anything to any cloud service. For people who value security and don’t want to pay monthly or yearly subscription fees for cloud storage, this is a perfect solution.

Google Photos is used by many, but it does not allow unlimited uploading of videos for free, and photos aren’t saved in full quality if you have a free account. For reasons such as this, Microsoft’s Photos Companion is the perfection solution for those of us who have been waiting for an app that allows easy transfer of both photos and videos to our computers, without a third party cloud provider getting in the way.

Note that this requires your computer and phone to be on the same wifi network. You can download the Photos Companion app from the Apple App Store and from Google Play.
