Facebook’s Google Photos Transfer Tool Is Now Available Globally
The social media giant Facebook’s Google Photos transfer tools is now available globally, the company announced on Thursday.
The new data transfer tool allows you to create copies of all of the photos or videos on your Facebook account and transfer them to a linked Google Photos one.
Here’s how to use the new data transfer tool on Facebook:
- While logged into your Facebook account, click on the down arrow at the end of the upper menu bar and select “Settings.”
- Select the tab that reads “Your Facebook Information.”
- Click on “Transfer a copy of your Photos or Videos.”
Right now, users can only store photos on Google Photos. However, a Facebook spokesperson told The Verge in April that the “people will also be able to transfer photos to other companies that join the Data Transfer Program.”
