Windows 11 comes with a newer version of the Photos app that offers a number of features that its predecessor doesn't have. Since very beginning, it was exclusively available to Windows 11, but something has changed. Its latest version can now be directly installed on Windows 10 without modifications.
The change has been spotted by eagle-eyed Insider @techosarusrex. Here's a screenshot of the running app.
As you can see, it supports OneDrive integration, and has the Memories section. The user interface follows Windows 11 guidelines, and, in my opinion, looks a bit alien on Windows 10.
The newest app is optimized for viewing, organizing, and editing images and videos. It provides users with a range of features to enhance their media files. These include cropping, trimming, and resizing photos and videos, applying filters and effects, and creating collages and movies.
One notable feature of the app is its AI-powered Memories function, which intelligently organizes photos and videos into collections based on their content and metadata. This makes it easier for users to browse through their memories and relive special moments.
Additionally, the Photos app seamlessly integrates with OneDrive, enabling users to access their media files from any device and easily share them with others. This integration enhances the convenience and flexibility of managing and sharing media across different platforms.
I was not able to install the app directly from the Microsoft Store, as it doesn't not appear for updating. But it is possible to sideload it manually. All you need to do is navigate to the store.rg-adguard.net website and search for the
9WZDNCRFJBH4 product ID. From the list of packages, grab the latest Microsoft.Windows.Photos* one.
