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.
"We knew that students often captured on multiple phones or tablets, but leveraged a single "project" PC to assemble their media and create their final project". It essentially works as a bridge between a Windows 10 PC and mobile devices. Another drawback is that the app works oneway, i.e., you can only transfer photos from Android and iOS to Windows 10, vice-versa isn't possible. So the Garage and Photos team opted for a Wi-Fi based direct transfer system. Users are required to scan a QR code generated by the Photos app on PC with the companion on mobile. The main objective of the app as previously reported is to have a direct and easy way of transferring photos and videos from your smartphone to your PC. This app is available for both iOS and Android Users. If you are still on the new version, head into the settings of the Photos app and click on the 'Join Preview' option.
First, you need to launch the Photos app on your computer.

If primary functionality in your app requires authentication by using an app-specific account, you must publish the app from a company account type. Because, before the launch of the app in 2017, the app product team has conducted visits to the various European and USA classrooms to see how teachers shared the content which is in their mobile device to the classroom PC, and to encourage them to use the app for this goal.
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).
