Microsoft has published the Windows Phone synchronisation tool to the Windows 8 Store. This app enables consumers to plug in their Windows Phone 8 handsets and add / remove media to and from the device.
Music, video and photos can be imported from the connected Windows Phone to the windows 8 machine (and vice versa). One can find quick links to Windows Phone content (including apps and games), as well as quick-glance information representing how much storage is currently being used.
While being a fairly simple app with limited functionality compared to the likes of Zune, it perfectly mimics the Windows Phone Connector app available on Mac, though lacks some features. We expect Microsoft to update the app to take full advantage of Windows 8, and to bring it up to speed with its Apple counterpart.
It seems as though the tool only works with Windows Phone 8 hardware (and presumably upcoming Windows Phone 7.8 for compatibility sakes), so unfortunately you’ll not all be able to play with the new toy just yet.
You can download the Windows Phone utility from the Windows 8 Store.
