Yesterday, Microsoft released a new photo-sharing app called Xim for the Android and Windows Phone mobile platform. Xim for iOS is on the way and will be on the Apple Store soon. Xim by Microsoft is totally free allowing users to share photos to other devices even if they do not have the Xim app installed.
Working the way through Xim, any user with the Xim app installed on a device can share images saved on their device or the cloud (via OneDrive, Dropbox, Facebook and even Instagram) as a slideshow with numerous friends from their contact list or even via email, phone number and the end user will receive the sharing notification as message with a link that will redirect them to the Web client if they do not have the app installed. In simple words, it is just like an MMS.
Photos are view-able in browsers and the selected images in the slideshow will be synchronized for all viewers. The company has stated that Xim is a perfect companion for moments like dinner with friends and hangouts. When you Xim, the photos will appear synchronously on all the devices even if they do not have the app. The Xim by Microsoft can be immediately downloaded from the Google Play Store.
