According to Microsoft, when the Photos app was redesigned in 2017, the product team went to classrooms and realized “The biggest hurdle many classrooms faced was getting the content students had captured with their phones onto their project PCs,” so this app is primarily designed for students.

The app works by temporarily inking (via QR code) to the Windows 10 photos app. You can send multiple photos over the same WiFi network and they appear immediately in the photo app. Do note, if you’re using OneDrive or any other cloud service to backup your photos, then this app probably isn’t for you.
