Microsoft Windows 11 iCloud Photos integration: The Us-based tech giant Microsoft has started rolling out iCloud Photos integration into its Windows 11. iCloud Photos is now directly integrated into the Photos app on Windows 11 and is beginning to roll out today via a Microsoft Store update to the Photos app. It is expected to be available to all Windows 11 customers by end of the month.

“Windows customers have photo and video collections on their iPhones that they would like to be able to view on their PC. This iCloud Photos integration will make it easier for those with an iPhone to have direct access to all their cherished memories in one organized place and is another step in our continued efforts to make experiences on Windows 11 seamless,” ,” Dave Grochocki, Principal Product Manager Lead, Windows Inbox Apps, said in a blog post.
– To bring your iCloud Photos into the Photos app, make sure your Photos app is updated and then install the iCloud for Windows app, all from the Microsoft Store.
– From there, sign in and choose to sync your photos, and all your iCloud Photos content will appear automatically in your Photos app.
Microsoft and Apple have collaborated on the iCloud Photos integration, and they have plans to soon bring Apple Music and Apple TV apps to Windows. Meanwhile, Microsoft added four new features in its collaboration app Teams — Assign seats in Together mode, Create Video clips, Pop out shared content into a separate window and Microsoft 365 connected templates.
