Facebook has of late been releasing new tools in order to make its most popular social media platform more interesting and useful for its users. The Facebook tool for exporting photos to Google Photos is now available to users around the world.
Towards the end of last year, Facebook announced the possibility of exporting photos and videos to Google Photo and gradually started introducing it to selected countries. However the too is now available to everyone. It is worth using it, especially if until now Facebook was the only place to store photos and videos.
How To Transfer Your Photos And Videos From Facebook
If you want a copy of your memories in Google Photos, you can now easily transfer them directly from Facebook.
Step 1: Just in Facebook options, click on your Facebook information and then in Send copies of photos or videos.
Step 2: After selecting the destination, you can select which photos or videos you want to send. Unfortunately, both options cannot be selected at once.
Step 3: Lastly, Google will ask you to confirm the entire operation.
You also have the ability to download content from your profile directly to your disk.
Transfer Photos To Google Photos Is Great Solution
This is a great solution for Facebook users. If you want to export photos from Facebook to another platform, there’s actually no need to first download them to your disk and then upload them again. If you lost or closed your Facebook account, no need to worry about losing photos and videos. And users who wants to remove their profile from the portal can quickly transfer all multimedia to Google. We believe that very soon, you will have more places to transfer them to.
The new tool is part of the Data Transfer Project, which was created to increase data mobility and easier transfer between different online platforms. Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Microsoft take part in it.
Meanwhile, Facebook recently announced the Manage Activity tool, which lets you archive and delete all old posts in mass. It allows you to archive content that you no longer want others to see on Facebook, but which you nevertheless wish to keep.
Facebook has also developed filters to help you sort and find what you are looking for, such as posts with certain people or those matching a given date range.
Perhaps you have just entered the job market after university, or perhaps you are trying to forget an old relationship, Facebook is aware that things are changing, and wants to help you to organize your presence on Facebook so that it more accurately reflects the person you are today.
