While anyone can download the Photo Companion app, developers at Microsoft Garage and Photos teams built the app with classrooms that rely on Windows 10 in mind.

"The app supports direct wireless transfer between any phone or mobile device and the Photos app on any Windows 10 PC", Microsoft explains.
