Microsoft has been gradually transferring old applications it used to use on its current device with new apps, the most recent has just been revealed with the new Windows 8 companion app for Windows Phone 8 devices, which will be available from the Windows phone Store and has been designed to replace the Zune client, much like the Xbox Music app will do upon release on the Xbox 360.

The application has also been designed with a Metro style in mind, and will allow quick access to photos, documents, music and videos on their Windows Phone devices and even import or export this data to other handsets.

The companion application will be available for download sometime in October when Windows Phone 8 releases.
