The Google Photos transfer feature of Facebook is available now to all the users across the world. The company announced the feature on 04 June 2020. Earlier it was only available for Canada and US users but now users from all over the world can use it.
This feature permits the users to copy all the videos and photos from their Facebook profile and instantly transfer them to Google Photos. According to reports, Facebook developed this feature in December 2019 and was available to be used in Latin America, Asia Pacific, and distinctive parts of Africa.
Facebook, while announcing the feature, proclaimed that it is quite simple to use and it will use fewer data of the users to transfer. The users who are keen to transfer their media from Facebook to Google Photos should tap on the tab of Settings in their Facebook account once the users have successfully click on Your Facebook Information icon. Afterwards, they have to press on the option of Transfer a copy of your Videos or Photos.
Although, the currently available feature can only transfer the photos of your Facebook account to Google Photos. However, the Facebook spokesperson stated that soon the feature would allow the users to transfer video file too. In addition to this, they also added that they are working to enhance the ability of this tool. Soon, the users can transfer the media from one Facebook account to other social media accounts such as Twitter, Microsoft, or Facebook.
Although, the feature mentioned by the spokesperson of Facebook is commendable. However, they are working on it since 2018, which is somehow a lot of time to developed a feature. The project was known as Data Transfer Project, and according to rumours, once Apple was also a part of that deal. However, due to some conflict, Apple turned down the deal of Facebook.
Although the feature of transferring the media from Facebook to Google Photos is also quite useful but only photos can be transferred, which is somehow quite disappointing. Besides, in his statement, the spokesperson of Facebook didn’t say anything in reference to the arrival of Data Transfer feature. However, they have only announced that soon it will be available. Let us see when will it arrive and how would it provide ease and convenience to its users.
