Microsoft has just revealed a new Windows 10 app, Phone Companion. The companion app will allow users to sync their music, files, pictures between their Windows 10 desktop and smartphone. Here are all the features the app will include:

  • With the OneDrive app setup correctly on your phone, every photo you take on your phone will show up automatically in the Photos app on your Windows 10 PC.
  • With the latest upcoming version of the Music app, you’ll be able to store and access your music from OneDrive not only on your PC but now also play it anywhere, for free, on your iOS or Android phone (this already works on Windows phones). This means the music playlists you spend hours putting together on your Windows 10 PC will now show up and be playable on your phone, automatically.
  • Take a note wherever you are—notes you write on your PC in OneNote will show up on your phone. And any note you tweak on your phone will get synced to your PC.
  • And you can work on your Office documents from any of your devices, without worrying about moving files around.
