Photos app on Windows 10 Mobile updated with new printing feature

While Microsoft has plans to enhance the Photos app with the upcoming Windows 10 Redstone update, we’ll unfortunately have to wait a bit longer for that update. On the bright side, not only is the Windows 10 Mobile update already available but Microsoft has also decided to update the Photos app for Windows 10 Mobile with new features.

Photos App for Windows 10 Mobile gets new features

Just like its desktop counterpart, the Photos app on Windows 10 Mobile is a basic photo viewing app that lacks several important features. The Photos app is by no means a bad application, but it feels a bit underwhelming compared to other photo viewing applications. Microsoft’s decision to update the Photos apps with highly requested features makes more sense considering the app’s capabilities.

One feature the Photos app lacked was the ability to print pictures right from the app itself. With version 16.317.14282 of the Photos app, users finally got the ability to print pictures without relying on third-party applications. The printing process is straightforward with the Print button being added to the ellipsis menu alongside standard printing options allowing you to adjust orientation, size, photo size, and fit before printing the desired picture. To use the newly added print feature, it’s required you have one of the Windows 10 Mobile compatible printers. You can learn more about Windows 10 Mobile compatible printers from here.

Adding print support to the Photos app on Windows 10 Mobile wasn’t the only improvement Microsoft added: another is related to Living Images, providing you the option to view Living Images in motion or as a still image.

Both of these are a step in right direction for Microsoft. Even though some of us might not use either, we’re still satisfied with this update and we expect to see more new features in the future.
