Almost all Android smartphones come with Google Photos app pre-installed on the smartphone. However, if you are an iPhone user, you must be aware that iCloud offers a limited amount of cloud storage space. That’s where Google Photos comes in handy by allowing users to move all the photos taken using an iPhone and here’s how to do it.
Before starting with the steps, first head to Apple App Store and download the Google Photos app on your smartphone.
Now, assuming you have downloaded the Google Photos app
1. Open Google Photos app on your iPhone
2. Head to Settings and enable Back up & sync toggle
3. Enter Google Account if asked
To move photos and videos from iPhone to Google Photos, open the app and tap on the three-dot from the top right corner and tap on Settings. Here’ you’ll need to turn on Backup and sync features to transfer all your photos and videos.
After this, login into Google Photos using Google Account. Do note that the app may ask to login at the time of setting up the app. Once logged in, tap on Backup mode and choose the option High Quality to get unlimited storage space.
If you are looking to sync all your photos and videos including the one saved via third-party apps like Instagram, WhatsApp, etc leave rest of the settings as it is. In case you just want to save photos and videos taken using phone’s camera, tap on Backup folder and choose the folders you want to sync.
Now, head back to Google Photos home page and wait for the app to sync your data. Also, make sure to connect your phone with Wi-Fi to save your data or any other additional data charges.
