Microsoft recently revealed a new app for Windows 10 called Phone Companion. The app isn’t available on Windows 10 Build 10130 – which is the current Windows 10 build. Nonetheless, for those unfamiliar with the Phone Companion app, it basically allows Windows Phone, Android and iOS users to transfer files such as pictures from their smartphone to their Windows 10 PC.

For Windows Phone users, the app isn’t really needed as Windows Phone is already setup with your Windows 10 PC – you just connect your phone, and you’re ready to go. And if you’re an Android or iPhone user, the app doesn’t really do much, to be fair.


For example, if you’re an Android user, using the app will allow you to transfer files and send links to Microsoft Apps for Android to your Android device. And that’s pretty much it. For those wondering, it’s the same case for iPhone users.

Here are a bunch of screenshots of the Phone Companion on Windows 10:
