Microsoft revealed last month that it is collaborating with Apple to make the Apple TV and Apple Music apps available on Windows-based computers. More than that, the company hinted at iCloud Photos being integrated into the native Photos app on Windows 11. Now that it has been implemented, Windows users can use this integration.
Microsoft iCloud Photos and Windows 11
According to news reports, the update for Windows 11’s Photos app with iCloud Photos integration is now accessible. Users must install iCloud for Windows, which is also available on the Microsoft Store, after updating the app through the Microsoft Store in order to get everything up and running.
After that, simply enable the photo library sync in the iCloud app by logging in with your Apple ID. As a result, the Windows Photos app should automatically display all of your iCloud-stored pictures and videos.
According to Dave Grochocki, principal product manager lead for Microsoft’s Windows inbox apps, “We know that many Windows customers have a photo and video collections on their iPhones that they want the option to watch on their PC.”
This iCloud Photos integration will make it simpler for people who own an iPhone. And to have direct access to all of their priceless memories in one place that is organized. It is also another step in our ongoing efforts to make experiences on Windows 11 seamless.
This represents a significant advancement in the user experience for users who use both Apple devices and Windows PCs. Even though iCloud Photos was already available on Windows prior to the update. And regular folders were required to access the images and videos.
